The UFC brings one of its lightest cards ever to the APEX tomorrow night. Just 11 fights for UFC Vegas 32. There’s two middleweight bouts and one welterweight and everything else is at 145 lbs or less.
The main event is the return of former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw, who is returning from a lengthy ban imposed due to his use of the performance enhancing drug EPO. He faces Cory Sandhagen in a bout that should determine one of the next challengers for the UFC’s bantamweight title currently being held by Aljimain Sterling.
The co-main for this one also involves bantamweights with Kyler Phillips facing former flyweight Raulian Paiva. These two get that billing thanks to Aspen Ladd vs. Macy Chiasson getting scratched from the event yesterday.
Also on the card is an intriguing flyweight bout between Maycee Barber and Miranda Maverick. There’s also an appearance by UFC mainstay Darren Elkins, who fights Darrick Minner.
Before any of these fights happen, the fighter need to make it through the weigh-ins. Which is never guaranteed.
You can watch all the weigh-ins below with video courtesy of Ag. Fight. That stream goes live at 12 PM ET.
