The event, which features a grand total of fourteen exciting fights, is headlined by a key lightweight contest pitting surging division contender Dustin Poirier against former World Series of Fighting title holder Justin Gaethje.
Dustin Poirier is coming off a third-round TKO victory over former division champion Anthony Pettis at November’s UFC Fight Night 120 event in Norfolk. Prior to that, “The Diamond” was involved in a war with Eddie Alvarez which unfortunately ended in a no-contest at UFC 211.
Meanwhile, Justin Gaethje is coming his first career loss to the aforemention Eddie Alvarez at December’s UFC 218 event in Detroit. Prior to the setback, Gaethje had gone a perfect 18-0 which included a thrilling knockout of Michael Johnson in his UFC debut.
UFC on FOX 29 will also feature former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit taking on the always dangerous Alex Oliveira.
Condit has suffered three straight losses, his most recent coming to Neil Magny at December’s UFC 219 event in Las Vegas.
