The UFC is back at the APEX facility with UFC Vegas 44 this weekend which is a sneaky good card filled with established names and up-and-comers. The main event is Jose Aldo vs. Rob Font in the bantamweight division as the Brazilian continues to hunt for another shot at a belt while the American hopes to get into the title picture for the first time in his career.
The co-main is a banger on paper with the highly meme-able Rafael Fiziev meeting Brad Riddell. The main card also boasts Jimmy Crute vs. Jamahal Hill and Clay Guida vs. Leonardo Santos.
The prelims are headlined by Maki Pitolo vs. Dukjo Todorovic. That portion of the event also features Bryan Barberena vs. Darian Weeks, Jake Matthews vs. Jeremiah Wells and Mallory Martin vs. Cheyanne Vlismas.
Of course before any of these fights happen the competitors will need to make it through the weigh-ins, which is never a given.
