It’s all systems go for the last Ultimate Fighting Championship card in Las Vegas for a while.

Heading to “Fight Island” next week, the UFC is going out with a bang with a jampacked card headlined by a pivotal welterweight bout between Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley. Both men former champs, the victor from the UFC Fight Night 178 main event will almost certainly cement themselves as a top contender once again. The 14-fight card is now official after the weigh-ins took place and everyone successfully made weight.

Covington (15-2) is coming off his first loss since 2015 as he came up short against current champion Kamaru Usman, who knocked “Chaos” out in Round 5 of their thrilling title fight. Prior to the defeat, the Oregon native was on the best streak of his career, having defeating top names such as Robbie Lawler, Rafael dos Anjos and Demian Maia. Covington looks to put that Usman performance behind him, and had no issue making weight by coming in at 171 pounds.

Also looking to bounce back is Woodley (19-5-1) as the former welterweight champion has dropped consecutive fights for the first time in his career. The reign of “The Chosen One” ended at the hands of Usman, and Woodley lost to top contender Gilbert Burns in his most recent bout. Always the professional, Woodley officially weighed in at 171 pounds.

UFC Fight Night 178 will air exclusively on ESPN+ on Sept. 19. The prelims kick off at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT, while the main card begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
