The Ultimate Fighting Championship comes to Brooklyn for the first time after making its Manhattan debut in 2016. More than a dozen fights are on the card, including Holly Holm taking on Germaine de Randamie for the women’s featherweight title.
Fans can also check out a couple of free events associated with UFC 208 leading up to the big day. On February 9, there is an open workout at Gleason's Gym (130 Water St., Manhattan) from 12:30 to 3pm, featuring Holm, de Rabdamie, Anderson Silva and Derek Brunson. To see them in action, just show up. On February 10, the athletes will weigh in at the Kings Theatre on Flatbush Avenue from 5 to 6:30pm. That event is free, too, but you'll need a ticket to get in. Get one starting on February 6 at ticketmaster.com.
