Highlights Include Velasquez vs Werdum, Aldo vs McGregor

Published on June 9th, 2015 7:19 am EST

Between now (June 9th) and the end of July, the UFC has a total of eight cards planned that will see the promotion travel from Mexico to Berlin to Florida to Las Vegas to San Diego to Glasgow to Chicago. Five titles will be on the line during that time (Heavyweight, Welterweight, Featherweight, Women's Strawweight, Bantamweight) and one of the cards (UFC 189: Aldo vs McGregor) has the chance of breaking the UFC's all-time PPV buy record (UFC 100, 1.6 million buys).

To top it all off, when July comes to an end and you think that you can't take anymore UFC for a while, August 1st brings the next title defense of Ronda Rousey when she takes on Bethe Correia in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


The highlights of the next seven weeks of UFC action? Likely the return of Cain Velasquez to the Heavyweight division and the long-awaited title fight between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor.

Cain Velasquez has been on the shelf for nearly two years as he has battled a number of different injuries. In the meantime, Fabricio Werdum was awarded the interim Heavyweight title after defeating Mark Hunt earlier in the year. Heavyweight title fights are one of the UFC's biggest attractions and they are no doubt chomping at the bit for their Heavyweight champion to return.

The biggest money fight? That would certainly be the Featherweight tilt between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor at UFC 189 in July. The entire world will be watching that fight and there is an outside chance that it ends up breaking the UFC's all-time PPV buy record. The hype for this fight is crazy, plus the card will also feature Rory MacDonald vs Robbie Lawler for the Welterweight title.


Here are the headlining fights for every card between now and the end of July:

Cain Velasquez vs Fabricio Werdum
Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Jessica Penne
Lyoto Machida vs Yoel Romero
Jose Aldo vs Conor McGregor
Jake Ellenberger vs Stephen Thompson
Frank Mir vs Todd Duffee
Michael Bisping vs Thales Leites
TJ Dillashaw vs Renan Barao
