The lineup for UFC 170 is nearly official with a five fight pay-per-view card headlined by UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey taking on 2004 Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann. The lineup has undergone a series of changes due to injuries and now sees a flyweight bout between Zach Makovsky and Joshua Sampo promoted to the FOX Sports 1 preliminary bouts.
The move still leaves the card in search of one more fighter however, as the promotion has yet to find a suitable replacement for top bantamweight contender Raphael Assunção with February 22 quickly approaching.
The fight card currently has two UFC Fight Pass prelims, but that could still change in the coming days if Assunção is scratched from the lineup.
