If you need a quick refresher, the July 11th card will also feature Aldo-McGregor, Lawler-MacDonald, Nelson-Hathaway, Stephens-Bermudez, Brown-Means, Almeida-Pickett, and Thatch-Howard among other scraps…
Ellenberger (30-9) will be looking to build on his last outing, as “The Juggernaut” submitted Josh Koscheck to end a three fight losing skid.
Thompson (10-1), on the other hand, hasn’t fought since last September when he decisioned Patrick Cote. “Wonderboy” has won four bouts in a row.
UFC 189 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
