Health permitting, Boston’s UFC 118 could include Edgar vs. Penn II, Florian vs. Maynard
The spearhead of the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s first trip to Massachusetts is rapidly taking shape.
The promotion is already targeting co-headlining fights for an as-yet-unnamed pay-per-view event – potentially UFC 118 – expected to take place Aug. 29 at the TD Garden in Boston, MMAjunkie.com has learned from sources close to the event.
A headliner and rematch between new UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and ex-champ B.J. Penn, as well as a co-headliner between top lightweight contender Kenny Florian and Gray Maynard, are both under heavy consideration. However, the health status of a few fighters could affect the plans.
