Gokhan Saki is headed back into the Octagon!

The UFC traditionally rolls out some of their big guns for the big year-end event. This year UFC 219 takes place on December 30th and is starting to look like a great card. I don’t think we’ve seen our main event announced yet, but we did get a fun announcement as Gokhan Saki will be back in the cage against Khalil Rountree.

Khalil Rountree is no stranger to knocking people out either. He is very heavy handed and has looked great lately. He will not be afraid to stand with Gokhan, and fireworks will undoubtedly ensue.

Gokhan made his UFC debut last month in dramatic fashion, knocking out Luis de Silva with one big shot at UFC Fight Night 117. Saki will need to work on his cardio, but his striking is simply ridiculous. He comes from the kickboxing world, and his punching power, kicks, and knees are awe-inspiring.

Dominick Cruz returns to the cage at UFC 219 to face Jimmy Rivera in a huge Bantamweight clash. Carlos Condit will also be back in the Octagon, facing Neil Magny. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
