The map ofUFC 256 seems to be taking shape. Remember, a few days ago, this gala scheduled for December 12 was losing his main fight pitting welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at Gilbert Burns. Several fights were then anticipated to take the place left empty, including the second initial fight between the champion Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson.
Finally, it is indeed this clash that will be promoted in “Main event” as stated yesterday Dana white. But the president of the organization was not satisfied with this announcement at the microphone Kevin lole for Yahoo Sports:

TheUFC 256 will therefore offer two championship fights as initially planned. Petr yan, still undefeated in 7 fights at theUFC, will defend for the first time his bantamweight title obtained last July against Jose aldo.
Sterling, for his part, seems to be the most legitimate as aspirant number 1 since the recent victory of Cody sandhagen in front of Marlon Moraes, coupled with his 5 straight victories (including Sandhagen when it was last released last June).
