The 38 year old UFC veteran defended his championship belt against four challengers before losing his title to Kamaru Usman in March of last year.

The main concern in the back of many fans heads is how he will bounce back after dislocating his thumb which required surgery fighting Darren Till in UFC 228 and a shoulder injury he had after his fight against Demian Maia in UFC 214.
