Two of the best finishers in the heavyweight division will battle this weekend as Josh Barnett meets Roy Nelson in a five-round main event that no one believes will go to the judges.
Barnett returns to Japan for the first time in several years after making the country his stomping grounds for a big part of his MMA career as well as a secondary job in professional wrestling as well.
Barnett enters the fight with a ridiculous 84-percent finishing rate throughout his career while Nelson counters by having the fifth most knockouts in heavyweight history, not to mention the most post-fight bonus awards for any heavyweight in the UFC.
When these two men step into the Octagon together, get ready for a lot of action until one of them can no longer continue.
Also on the card Saturday night is a middleweight co-main event as top-10 ranked fighter Gegard Mousasi takes on former "Ultimate Fighter" winner Uriah Hall in a matchup that should be a real crowd pleaser for the audience in Japan.
To ensure you don’t miss any of the action, here’s an easy guide to follow along for all the places to catch the event this weekend.
