UFC 292 has circulated many rumors, so let's break down the event's who, where, and when. Firstly, it was announced by Dana White at the UFC 288 press conference that the PPV event will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, inside the TD Garden Arena. The TD Garden has been visited by the UFC six times and held some historic events, such as UFC 220: Miocic vs. Ngannou and UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Siver. In addition, Boston has had many fighters thrown down inside the octagon, such as some notorious names like Conor Mcgregor, Islam Makhachev, Daniel Cormier, and Boston's own Calvin Kattar.
The main event will see Aljamain Sterling attempt to make the fourth consecutive defense of his Bantamweight title against UFC superstar Sean O'Malley. If Sterling wins this bout, he will be the only UFC Bantamweight fighter to secure four title defenses (excluding WEC).
The co-main event will see Zhang Weili defend her Strawweight title vs. Amanda Lemos. Lemos has won seven of her last eight, and Weili has only lost to Rose Namajunas in her last twenty bouts.
Henry Cejudo will face Marlon Vera in a massive Bantamweight bout, both looking to get back into the win column after their split decision losses.
Speaking of Bantamweights, Rob Font will be looking to continue his momentum, taking on Song Yadong in a must-see matchup.
Geoff Neal will look to rebound from his FOTY contender vs. Shavkhat Rakhmonov when he faces rising Irish star Ian Garry.
Chris Weidman will be returning for the first time since 2021, taking on division veteran Brad Tavares.
There are currently no other rumored bouts for this card.
