The UFC is back in the friendly confines of its Las Vegas-based APEX facility this weekend for UFC Vegas 51. In the main event are two welterweights—Vicente Luque and Belal Muhammad—who are hoping to get in striking distance of 170 lb kingpin Kamaru Usman.
The co-main event for this is Cao Borralho vs. Gadzh Omargadzhiev. Also on the main card is Miguel Baeza vs. Andre Fialho and Mayra Bueno Silva vs. Yanan Wu. There isn’t must name value on the prelim card, either. That portion of the event is headlined by Devin Clark vs. William Knight. There’s also Lina Lansberg vs. Pannie Kianzad and Brandon Jenkins vs. Drakkar Klose.
There was no drama on the scales today with everyone making weight. The only nervy moment was Klose needing to weigh in a second time to shed a spare .75 lbs.
