ufc fight night 81

The Octagon will set up shop for a special Sunday night event this weekend, as UFC Fight Night 81 takes place from the TD Garden in Boston.

After fighting just once in over three years, Dominick Cruz will try to regain the UFC bantamweight title when he meets T.J. Dillashaw on FOX Sports 1. Cruz never lost the belt, as officials stripped him due to the series of injuries.

Along with Dillashaw-Cruz, lightweight contenders Anthony Pettis and Eddie Alvarez will square off, along with heavyweights Travis Browne and Matt Mitrione.

Prelims begin on UFC Fight Pass with five scheduled matches, while the remaining eight air live on FS1.

FightLine will be providing live and complete coverage of all the action this weekend.

Also, the Invicta FC strawweight title is up for grabs, as champion Livia Renata Souza defends vs. DeAnna Bennett. Souza was originally scheduled for a title defense with Alexa Grasso, but the unbeaten Bennett stepped in when she suffered an injury.

Dana White

Instead of making fans wait until Monday, UFC president Dana White has released the debut of “Lookin’ for a Fight.”

Joined by Matt Serra and Nick the Tooth, the show follows White and crew around the world as they seek to add fighters to the UFC’s roster.

Rafael Dos Anjos

UFC president Dana White would not stand in the way of a champion vs. champion match between Conor McGregor and Rafael dos Anjos.

Appearing on Wednesday’s edition of “UFC Tonight,” White mentioned the idea of allowing the current UFC featherweight champion to challenge dos Anjos – the lightweight titleholder – and defend both belts.

“Conor has said that he would like to win the 155-pound belt and fight four times a year, and defend both belts,” White said. “If anybody can do it, Conor can. This guy has pretty much done everything he said he would do, so I’m interested.”

McGregor (19-2) earned his seventh Octagon victory last month with a 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo. Dos Anjos (25-7) earned his fifth straight with a successful title defense vs. Donald Cerrone in December.
