UFC 229 adds six fights to October card

The card is set to be headlined by Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor in a lightweight title bout.

Las Vegas, Nevada is due to host a monster match up at 155lbs and last night (Thursday) the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that a further six bouts have been added to the fight card.

MIchelle Waterson (15-6) vs Felice Herrig (14-7) is a pivotal match up at strawweight with the #7 and #8 respectively ranked fighters looking to launch themselves into the upper echelons of the division for a future title tilt.

Also on the card is an intriguing light heavyweight contest between Ovince Saint Preux (23-11) and Dominick Reyes (9-0). With both fighters on a solid winning streak, it’s a match up that will certainly draw a lot of attention at 205lbs.

Lina Lansberg (8-3) vs Yana Kunitskaya (10-4 -1 NC) and Ryan LaFlare (14-2) vs Tony Martin (13-4) make up the batch of new additions for the card.

Already announced was a potential co-main event slot for Derrick Lewis vs Alexander Volkov and Jussier Formiga vs Sergio Pettis

The event takes place on Saturday, October 9th in Las Vegas and tickets are set to go on sale for Fight Club members on Wednesday 15th August before a general sale that Friday.
