FS1’s UFC 206 Coverage Features Champions Bisping and Woodley as Studio Analysts

LOS ANGELES – UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping (@Bisping) and welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (@TWooodley) serve as FS1 desk analysts alongside host Karyn Bryant (@KarynBryant) in FOX Sports’ Los Angeles studios for the network’s coverage of UFC 206: HOLLOWAY VS. PETTIS on Friday, Dec. 9 and Saturday, Dec. 10.

UFC 206: HOLLOWAY VS. PETTIS is headlined by the interim UFC featherweight title fight between Max Holloway (16-3), who is riding a nine-fight winning streak, and former UFC / WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis (19-5), who attempts to become only the fourth fighter to win UFC titles in two weight classes.

“I’m a huge fan of both of these guys,” says FOX UFC analyst Woodley. “I’m excited for this fight. Both these guys are finishers. They’re both aggressive. This is the perfect fight for both at this point in their careers.” Watch a longer preview here.
