Check out the full “UFC Road to the Octagon” episode for Saturday’s UFC on FOX 25 event.
UFC on FOX 25 takes place Saturday at NYCB LIVE at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y. The card airs on FOX following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.In the headliner, former middleweight champion Chris Weidman (13-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) takes on ex-welterweight and “TUF 17” winner Kelvin Gastelum (13-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC). Weidman is a Long Islander who lives only 10 minutes from the stadium, but he’ll be attempting to snap a three-fight skid after starting his career a perfect 13-0.In the co-main event, two standout wrestlers and gritty featherweights will clash when Dennis Bermudez (16-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC), from New York, takes on Darren Elkins (22-5 MMA, 12-4 UFC). And another New Yorker, Gian Villante (15-8 MMA, 5-5 UFC), gets a home-state fight ahead of teammate and friend Weidman when he meets light heavyweight Patrick Cummins (9-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC).
“Road to the Octagon” looks at those three fights ahead of what will be the UFC’s fifth trip to the state of New York since this past November, when UFC 205 was the return there after long-awaited MMA legislation passed.
