10 Reason to Watch UFC 188

10 REASONS TO WATCH UFC 188, INCLUDING THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION FALLOUT
By Steven Marrocco, MMAJunkie.com
The UFC’s first trip to Mexico kind of summed up the promotion’s luck in 2014, which is to say it didn’t catch much of it. Now, the promotion is making up for missed opportunities with tonight’s UFC 188 event.

UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez is back where he should have been seven months ago when he injured his knee prior to a title defense at UFC 180 opposite Fabricio Werdum.

The matchup is back on, at the same Mexico City Arena, with Werdum now holding an interim strap offered in the wake of Velasquez’s disastrous withdrawal. Werdum appeared to connect with Mexican fans in the wake of the champ’s injury and layoff, which should in theory raise the stakes of this title-unification match.
