Fight fans will be treated to a whopping six-bout main card as the UFC brings the calendar year to a close in style at UFC Fight Night 183: Thompson vs Neal.

The headline tilt sees Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson squeeze his first appearance of 2020 onto the final card as he aims to build on victory against Vicente Luque in November last year.

But the imposing figure of rising welterweight knockout king Geoff Neal awaits with the Contender Series alumni hoping to confirm his status as a real threat in the 170lb division by picking up the biggest win of his career.

Neal is undefeated in five UFC bouts since graduating from the Contender Series and comes into the fight almost exactly a year to the date since a career-best demolition job on Mike Perry.

Teeing up the main event, Jose Aldo takes on Marlon Vera in a bantamweight showcase that promises fireworks as two masterful strikers go toe-to-toe.

Aldo, the future Hall of Famer and former lightweight champion, has looked impressive in his two fights at 135lb so far despite successive losses since entering the division.

But Vera, beaten just once in his last seven fights, can make a case for being one of the most improved fighters on the bantamweight scene in recent times and will be no pushover for the veteran great.

With all that plus Michel Pereira vs Khaos Williams and Marlon Moraes vs Rob Font to look forward to, read on to find out how you can watch UFC Fight Night 183: Thompson vs Neal on BT Sport this weekend.
