After months of speculation of what fighters could be on the card at the first ever legal mixed martial arts event in New York state, the UFC this week released the information involving seven fights on the historic card taking place November 12th. An official press conference will be held Tuesday September 27th at Madison Square Garden to make these fights official. Of of the seven fights released, two of them include New York native fighters. Long Island native and former middleweight champion Chris Weidman challenges Yoel Romero. Niagara Falls native Rashad Evans will go up against Tim Kennedy. The rest of the card is as follows
