Luke Rockhold and Costas Philippou will have a chance to re-emerge as serious middleweight title contenders on Wednesday.
Despite losing in their most recent outings, Rockhold and Philippou will meet in the UFC Fight Night 35 headliner. A win for either fighter could mean a return to the title picture in the intriguing middleweight division.
Coming off a loss to champion Demetrious Johnson, former flyweight title challenger John Moraga will also attempt a return to the win column on Wednesday's fight card. He'll meet up-and-comer Dustin Ortiz, who recently picked up a win in his UFC debut.
Additionally, Top 10 bantamweights TJ Dillashaw and Mike Easton will look to rebound in an important matchup on the UFC Fight Night 35 main card. While both lost their most recent fights, they could still be a couple of wins away from a shot at the 135-pound championship.
At the conclusion of UFC Fight Night 35, several fighters will join UFC president Dana White or another UFC official for a post-fight press conference that can be viewed live on the above video player.
