The UFC is setting up for one of their weakest events of the year so far. After a glorious fight night card last weekend, featuring TJ Dillashaw eking out a decision over Cory Sandhagen, this week’s headline bout between Uriah Hall and Sean Strickland just doesn’t feel like it has the same stakes. Underneath is a card that has some interesting prospects, potential action bouts, but nothing in the way of divisional relevance across any of the promotion’s weight classes.

For fans interested in diving deeper into the undercard, however, we’ve got you covered with the Prelims Vivi below.
