In a somewhat surprising move, Urijah Faber will go from a pay-per-view main event fight to the headline act for a PPV prelim lineup, as Faber vs. Alex Caceres tops the UFC 175 televised action.
Set for July 5, the card features two championship matches. Chris Weidman defends his middleweight title vs. Lyoto Machida, while Ronda Rousey meets Alexis Davis for her female bantamweight belt.
Other main card bouts include Matt Mitrione-Stefan Struve, Uriah Hall-Thiago Santos and Marcus Brimage-Russell Doane.
Faber and Caceres will top off the FOX Sports 1 prelims, being joined by Ildemar Alcantara-Kenny Robertson, Chris Camozzi-Bruno Santos and Rob Font-George Roop.
Two bouts are set for UFC Fight Pass, including a recently announced collision of champions. Resurrection Fighting Alliance’s Kevin Casey will face Legacy FC champ Bubba Bush. Both fighters are champions in their respective promotion, and both hold eight MMA wins to their credit.
Below is the current lineup for the night and the latest extended video preview.
