(The Philippine Star) - February 9, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and FOX+ have forged a partnership which  brings to homes a series of bigger and more intense match-ups brewing in the premier mixed martial arts sport organization today.

FOX + said fight fans and subscribers are in for a treat as the video-streaming service kicks off with a key middleweight title fight between Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum in UFC 234 on Feb. 10.

Whittaker, the UFC undisputed middleweight champion, is currently tearing the division apart. Standing on his way of total dominance is a young and hungry contender in Gastelum.

Gastelum, who is fresh off back-to-back victories over former champion Michael Bisping and Ronaldo Souza, is expected to put up a great fight. He is coming in as an underdog who can  pull off an upset win.

Sports analysts are predicting it as a ‘fight of the night’ in the making.

After UFC 234, a long list of fights is in store for Filipino mixed martial arts fans.

Former One Championship titleholder Ben Askren will finally make his long-awaited UFC debut. The brash and outspoken American fighter who wasted no time in challenging marquee UFC names from Conor McGregor to Khabib Nurmagomedov after signing with UFC, will enter the Octagon against former UFC welterweight king Robbie Lawler in UFC 235 on March 2.

Immediate upcoming UFC fights on FOX+ include Assuncao vs Moraes 2 (Feb. 3), Ngannou vs Velasquez (Feb. 18) and Blachowicz vs Santos (Feb. 24).

Events on FOX+ may be streamed on mobile devices, computers, Apple TV and select Android TVs.  FOX+ can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play Store.
