The finalized lineup for next Sunday night’s UFC Fight Night 59 event has been officially announced for a show that will air in a special Sunday night time slot, live on FOX Sports 1.
The headline attraction for the show, which is scheduled to emanate from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, features “The Notorious” Conor McGregor taking on veteran UFC contender Dennis Siver in a match with high stakes, as UFC President Dana White recently confirmed that with a win, McGregor will be next in line for a shot at UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo.
The co-main event next Sunday will feature the third fight in a trilogy of two former WEC standouts, as Donald Cerrone steps in on short notice to replace Eddie Alvarez in an exciting lightweight match against former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson.
