UFC 68 - The Uprising - Final Card

A mix of seasoned veterans, up and coming prospects, and Octagon newcomers will comprise the undercard of UFC 68: The Uprising, which will take place at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, March 3rd.

In the main event, Tim Sylvia defends his UFC Heavyweight title against former two-time champion Randy Couture. Also featured will be the returns of former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin (who takes on Jason MacDonald) and former UFC Welterweight king Matt Hughes (who will battle Chris Lytle).

Rounding out the pay-per-view portion of the card will be an intriguing light heavyweight matchup between Jason Lambert and former world title challenger Renato ‘Babalu’ Sobral and a middleweight clash between 185-pound bangers Martin Kampmann and Drew McFedries.

In preliminary contests, welterweight contenders Jon Fitch and Luigi Fioravanti square off, TUF3 light heavyweight Matt Hamill takes on former national wrestling champion and UFC debutant Rex Holman, and lightweights Jason Dent and Jamie Varner look to move up the 155-pound ladder when they face off in bouts against Gleison Tibau and Jason Gilliam, respectively.
