The UFC returns to Pay-Per View this weekend for a stacked card. UFC 192: Cormier vs. Gustafsson will take place on Saturday, October 3 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

The night kicks off with a four-fight early prelim card on UFC Fight Pass starting at 6:15 p.m. eastern, followed by a four-fight preliminary card at 8:00 p.m. on Fox Sports 1 and finishes up with a five-fight main card at 10:00 p.m. on Pay-Per View.

The main event features a five-round light heavyweight championship bout between current champion Daniel Cormier and No. 2 ranked light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson. Cormier picked up his UFC belt by defeating Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 after earning his first professional loss to former champ Jon Jones at UFC 182. Gustafsson, who has has a L on his record at the hands of Jones, is actually 1-2 over his last three bouts, but his the top-contender for Cormier’s belt.

In the co-main event, former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks takes on Tyron Woodley in a welterweight showdown. Hendricks is coming off a huge win over Matt Brown at UFC 185 after losing his belt to Robbie Lawler at UFC 181. Woodley is 4-1 over his last five bouts, including two wins straight against Dong Hyun Kim and Kelvin Gastelum. Winner of this bout has a real shot at Lawler and his 170-pound title.

UPDATE: Hendricks vs. Woodley has been scratched from the card after the former welterweight champion had issues arise during weight cutting. As a result, Joseph Benavidez vs. Ali Bagautinov has been moved to the main card.
