[Fight week!] UFC Fight Night 99: Full fight card and preview for Belfast event

UFC Fight Night 99 will be held on November 19, 2016, at The SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK. The whole event will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.

The event will be the second that the UFC has hosted in Northern Ireland, with the first being UFC 72 in June 2007.

A welterweight bout between ranked contenders Dong Hyun Kim and Gunnar Nelson was expected to serve as the headliner of the event, however, on October 21, it was announced that Nelson pulled out due to an injury and the fight was off.

In turn, a middleweight rematch between former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Gegard Mousasi and Uriah Hall was announced as the new headliner. The pairing met previously in September 2015 at UFC Fight Night: Barnett vs. Nelson with Hall taking the victory via second round highlight reel TKO.

A lightweight bout between Ross Pearson and James Krause was expected to serve as the co-main event, however, Krause pulled out of the fight citing a torn hamstring. He was then replaced by Stevie Ray.
