UFC 304 makes its way to Manchester on July 27 with a stacked fight card from top to bottom

Dana White is giving Manchester, England, a treat as the company president revealed a stacked UFC 304 card featuring two title fights.

Leon Edwards, the UFC’s number three pound-for-pound fighter, will put his welterweight championship on the line in a rematch against Belal Muhammad.

Similarly, Tom Aspinall, the UFC interim heavyweight champion, gets another chance to defeat challenger Curtis Blaydes — this time, with a title on the line.

Other rising stars in the UFC occupy the main card as local phenoms Paddy Pimblett and Arnold Allen look to build upon their already impressive MMA resumes.

Edwards and Muhammad previously shared the octagon as the headliners of a 2021 UFC Fight Night card in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The match ended in a no-contest after Edwards inadvertently lodged his finger into Muhammad’s eye, forcing a doctor stoppage in the second round.

Now, the two will meet again with UFC gold on the line. As the main event matchup, Edwards should have the backing of a rowdy Manchester crowd.

Likewise, Aspinall, the reigning interim heavyweight champion, hails from England and will need support to fend off Blaydes.

UFC fans will remember the pair’s first fight, as it ended with a devastating knee injury suffered by Aspinall, leaving Blaydes with an official TKO victory.

That remains the lone loss on Aspinall’s UFC resume, as the upcoming Manchester card gives him a chance to exercise those demons vs his American challenger.

Outside the two headliner matchups, other well-known MMA stars appear lower on the card, including Liverpool’s own Pimblett.

He’ll stand across from veteran Bobby Green as both men aim for victory in hopes of earning a crack at the UFC lightweight championship in the near future.

The rest of the main card consists of Englishman Arnold Allen battling with Giga Chikadze, while the undefeated Muhammad Mokaev looks to stay hot vs Manel Kape in the opener.
