UFC Fight Night 81 Play-By-Play At FightLine

v
Later tonight, our sister site FightLine will be having play by play coverage of UFC Fight Night 81.

In the main event, T.J. Dillashaw defends his bantamweight title against the man who never lost it, Dominick Cruz.

Dillashaw (12-2) has won four in a row, including a pair of title defenses vs. Renan Barao and Joe Soto. Both of those fights, the former Ultimate Fighter alum won via finish, knocking out Barao in the fourth and Soto in the fifth.

Cruz (20-1) returned from a three-year layoff in 2014 and knocked Takeya Mizugaki out in the first round, but another torn ACL sidelined him all of last year. The UFC stripped ‚ÄúThe Dominator‚ÄĚ of the belt after his first series of injuries.

In the co-main event, former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis takes on ex-Bellator titleholder Eddie Alvarez, while heavyweights Travis Browne and Matt Mitrione collide in another main card bout.

The action comes to us from the TD Garden in Boston and airs on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass. Below is the current lineup and a video preview:
