Start Times, Fight Card For UFN 81 Sunday

ufc fight night 81

The Octagon will set up shop for a special Sunday night event this weekend, as UFC Fight Night 81 takes place from the TD Garden in Boston.

After fighting just once in over three years, Dominick Cruz will try to regain the UFC bantamweight title when he meets T.J. Dillashaw on FOX Sports 1. Cruz never lost the belt, as officials stripped him due to the series of injuries.

Along with Dillashaw-Cruz, lightweight contenders Anthony Pettis and Eddie Alvarez will square off, along with heavyweights Travis Browne and Matt Mitrione.

Prelims begin on UFC Fight Pass with five scheduled matches, while the remaining eight air live on FS1.

FightLine will be providing live and complete coverage of all the action this weekend.
