UFC 239 Promises To Be The Most Stacked MMA Card Of All-Time

UFC 239 looks set to be the most stacked card in the history of the company, with a further three huge match-ups officially announced for the July show.

A heavyweight slugfest between Francis Ngannou and Junior dos Santos had been rumoured and has now been made official, while we are also getting Jan Blachowicz vs. Luke Rockhold in the latter's light heavyweight debut as well as Michael Chiesa vs Diego Sanchez at the T-Mobile Arena.

UFC 239 in Vegas coincides with UFC International Fight Week and Dana White is certainly throwing all the bells and whistles at it.
