From former champions like Anderson Silva and Cain Velasquez, to up-and-coming prospects like Petr Yan and Johnny Walker, there's plenty on offer this month if fisticuffs in 4oz gloves is what you're looking for.
10. Cain Velasquez Vs. Francis Ngannou - UFC On ESPN 1
Just in case you forgot about Cain Velasquez during his two-year break from competition, the former UFC heavyweight champion is returning to the Octagon for a massive match-up with knockout specialist, Francis Ngannou, in what promises to be an epic battle of the big men.

Taking on Ngannou is a hell of tough task as the Cameroonian has furious finishing power. However, the American Kickboxing Academy standout is an elite fighter, who has gone through a who's who of heavyweights since his debut and has the wrestling base to put 'The Predator' on his back and punish him.
