The UFC is holding its traditional pre-spring/summer press conference in Atlanta, GA, Friday at noon to get some buzz going for its slate of events through July's International Fight Week.
Along with UFC president Dana White, Jon Jones, Alexander Gustafsson, Ben Askren, Rose Namajunas, Henry Cejudo, Amanda Nunes, Holly Holm, Francis Ngannou, and Junior dos Santos make up part of 17 fighters in attendance. Notably absent is Jorge Masvidal who is expected to fight Askren in July.
Along with the buzzworthy Askren, the back and forth between flyweight champion Cejudo and Marlon Moraes should be fun to watch. The two square off in June for the vacant bantamweight title.
The UFC is in Atlanta for Saturday's UFC 236, co-headlined by two interim title fights. In the main event, featherweight champion Max Holloway moves up in weight to face Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight title while Israel Adesanya battles Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight crown.
