Stacked UFC card:

UFC 285 is stacked as other than the main event we have ‘The Queen’ Valentina Shevchenko defend her belt against Grasso. Shevchenko is believed to be one of the greatest fighters from the women’s roster. She even took a jump up in the weight class to face Amanda Nunes. Will Grasso be able to solve the puzzle, we find out.

Shavkat Rahmonov is one of the much more talked about names in the welterweight division. He never got to rise as fast as Khamzat Chimaev, but some believe they are very similar. It would be interesting to see how he does against Geoff Neal. The winner here definitely should get to fight for the number 1 contender at 170 pounds.

We have the young and upcoming Bo Nickal on this card as well. Jamie Pickett would be a great test for Nickal, and we find out if he is the real deal or not.
