There is a big Mixed Martial Arts even tonight at the Los Angeles Forum.  UFC 232 is on. UFC 232 is just around the corner, as it will be taking place at the Forum in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

The event features two title fights - Jon "Bones" Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson for the Light Heavyweight title, and Amanda Nunes vs Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino for the Featherweight title.

The event has been mired in an atypical amount of controversy.

Originally, UFC 232 was slated to take place in Las Vegas, but the event was moved to Los Angeles with a week left before the card after it was revealed that Jon Jones still had a trace amount of steroids in him. The UFC and various "experts" contended that this was still left over from a long time ago and that Jones shouldn't be punished again for something that has lingered in his system. The UFC contended that Las Vegas officials couldn't have cleared Jones in time to fight this weekend, so that CSAC agreed to sanction the card and everything was moved to the Forum in Los Angeles on short notice.

Despite what you think about the decision to move the card to Los Angeles, UFC 232 is a great looking card with a number of intriguing fights. You have Jon Jones trying to reclaim his spot at the top of the fighting world, and you have Cyborg and Nunes battling in one of the most important female fights of all time.

Despite all of the controversy, Jones and Cyborg remain clear favourites to win. The rest of the main card is very close, as the Condit/Chiesa, Anderson/Latifi and Volkanovski/Mendes fights are all essentially coin flips.

There are also a number of intriguing preliminary fights, including Cat Zingano vs Megan Anderson, BJ Penn vs Ryan Hall and Andrei Arlovski vs Walt Harris.
