UFC Contenders and Pretenders That Will Be Revealed in April

The UFC has had a rare break in action over the past few weeks, but things are about to heat back up in a hurry as the organization prepares itself for a busy month of April featuring four events.

Sweden will welcome the promotion back to Europe on Saturday, when Gegard Mousasi will meet replacement opponent and Alexander Gustafsson teammate Ilir Latifi.

Then, The Ultimate Fighter 17 will be wrapped up in Las Vegas. At the season finale, Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano will battle for a title shot and coaching spot opposite women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter 18.

The UFC will return to network television on April 20, when Benson Henderson and Gilbert Melendez will square off for the lightweight title in the UFC on Fox 7 main event.

Finally, light heavyweight king Jon Jones will attempt to continue his dominance against former top middleweight contender Chael Sonnen as the month comes to a close.

There are plenty of fights that will impact the official UFC rankings this month, so let's take a look at which fighters will mark themselves as contenders and pretenders in April.
