The UFC’s weekly schedule just keeps rolling on. This weekend we are treated to a card that was to feature former UFC lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos versus Islam Makhachev in the main event. However an injury to Makhachev means RDA gets a short notice replacement.
Stepping in on a few days later is Paul Felder, who was scheduled to work at the event as a colour commentator. With such short notice for Felder, all eyes will be on the scales to make sure this hastily put together main event makes it to fight night.
Also on the card is a middleweight bout between Julian Marquez and Saparbek Safarov and a strawweight duel between Kay Hansen and Cory McKenna. On the undercard former Invicta FC strawweight champion makes her UFC debut versus Randa Markos.
The official weigh-ins begin at 12 PM ET. You can watch the weigh-ins below with video via MMA Junkie.
