“Gold Coins” – Looking At UFC on FOX 24

Posted By: Baxter

Date Posted: April 15th, 2017.

BUCKLE UP!! From the Sprint Center in Kansas City Missouri, the UFC will host their 10th LIVE event of 2017 calendar year. Anchored by Demetrius Johnson’s journey for GREATNESS, this card does indeed have a few “GOLD Coins” worth your time!!

“Achievement Unlocked?”

Flyweight Champion DJ looks to keep his P4P “freight train” rolling against (+900) underdog and former EliteXC Champion Wilson Reis. With a “win” DJ will tie Anderson Silva in the record books, as the ONLY two UFC champions with 10 consecutive successful title defenses. Will history be written Saturday night?

“Swim At Your Own Risk”

Easily his toughest opponent to date, Rob Whittaker will have to keep his arms/legs inside the boat at all times as he traverses through the alligator infested waters of MW!! Fresh off a NEW “8 FIGHT” deal, Jacare Souza looks to put it all aside and continue his quest for UFC MW gold. Whittaker posses some really great footwork/hand speed, should be fun!!


Tom DUQUESNOY is a kid to watch out for!! The “Fire Kid” to be exact. This (14-1) 23 year old French prospect will make his highly touted UFC debut vs. Patrick Williams. Duquesnoy was one of the most sought after prospects receiving multiple offers from organizations across the globe before ultimately signing with the UFC. Some have already proclaimed Duquesnoy the future 135lbs.

Rose x Michelle

With the spotlight on Michelle Waterson, it’s easy to see, the future is NOW!! Looking for back to back wins on “big” FOX, Waterson cannot be denied her shot at the UFC Straw weight Championship when the time is right.

Notable Fights:

Tim Elliott x Louis Smolka

Alexander Volkov x Roy Nelson

Jeremy Stephens x Renato Moicano
