Salas Returns to Face Saggo at UFC 196

Back in action after nearly a year and a half on the sidelines, Denver's Justin "J-Bomb" Salas will seek his fourth Octagon victory on March 5 in Las Vegas when he faces Canada's Jason Saggo at UFC 196.
 
UFC 196, which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, is headlined by the lightweight title fight between Rafael Dos Anjos and Conor McGregor and the women's bantamweight title bout between Holly Holm and Miesha Tate.

Making his Las Vegas debut, the 33-year-old Salas has been out of action since a July 2014 loss to Joe Proctor. This March, he hopes to show off the form that has seen him defeat Ben Wall, Aaron Riley and Anton Kuivanen against Prince Edward Island's Saggo, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt who has split two UFC bouts, defeating Josh Shockley and losing to Paul Felder.
