UFC Returns to Halifax Tonight

A sold out crowd is expected tonight as UFC mixed martial arts returns to Halifax. UFC Fight night returns to Halifax for the first time since October of 2014 with a heavyweight bout between veterns Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne headlining the event. However, the focus for many will be the UFC debut of undefeated, Newfoundland born Gavin Tucker. Tucker, who trains out of the Titans gym in Halifax, has gone 9-and-0 to start his MMA career and will make his UFC debut against veteran Sam Sicilia of the United States. Tucker is one of five Canadians on tonight’s card.
