With the UFC returning to the United States on Saturday, the mixed martial arts club is coming back to America. And should you be feeling adventurous, there’s also an ocean between New York and Boston, meaning you can bring at least one fighter or two with you for the fight.

There are several UFC Fight Night cards set for the weekend, including many exciting matchups for the fastest growing sport in the world.

Earlier this week the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced its big news for the coming year — Conor McGregor is set to return for his long-awaited rematch with the undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather.

The pair fought in August of this year and McGregor won in a boxing match via unanimous decision. You’ve probably heard of him, because — you’ll be horrified to learn — he’s the “Money” from “The Notorious.”

He’s also set to face Mike Alvarado at UFC 218, which is scheduled for December 10, in a fight the fight promotion describes as “heavyweight.”

Here’s who else is scheduled to fight on the five cards, taking place between Friday September 29 and Saturday October 1.
