There will be a lot of gold in the building at UFC 265.
An official poster has been released for the August 7 pay-per-view event, which takes place at the Toyota Center in Houston. The poster includes interim heavyweight title contenders Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane, and dual division champion Amanda Nunes, who is expected to defend her bantamweight title against Julianna Pena.
Lewis gets his second UFC belt shot after failing against Daniel Cormier at UFC 230. He will have to pass undefeated Gane to claim his share of the heavyweight crown.
Nunes, currently the world’s best fighter at 145 and 135 pounds, is looking for her sixth consecutive successful bantamweight championship defense and eighth consecutive successful title defense overall. “The Lioness” has not lost a fight since 2014.
