WATCH: UFC Kansas City Weigh-Ins
The UFC is bringing a stacked FOX show to Kansas City on Saturday, as flyweight champion and #1 pound-for-pound fighter Demetrious Johnson defends his title against Wilson Reis. The co-main event features two strawweight contenders as Rose Namajunas takes on Michelle Waterson.
If "Mighty Mouse" can defeat Reis, he will tie Anderson Silva’s record of ten consecutive title defenses. That has been one of Johnson’s primary goals since beginning his reign as seemingly unbeatable flyweight champion, making this fight one of the most important of his recent career.
The card also features a clash of top middleweight contenders, as #3 ranked Jacare Souza faces #6 Robert Whittaker. As Jacare looks to further cement himself as an uncrowned champion at 185 lbs. and Whittaker looks to prove he belongs at the top of the division, this fight is one of the most intriguing on the card. The winner will be poised to challenge for the title in the near future, once the mess atop the middleweight division is settled.
