The UFC is back with a decent quality Fight Night this week. It may not quite have as much curb appeal as last weeks card, but the main event between Arman Tsarukyan and Mateusz Gamrot has the looks of a high level wrestling and grappling battle. Neil Magny looks to stand strong in his welterweight gatekeeper role against Shavkat Rakhmonov. And Chris Curtis returns to action against BJJ legend Rodolfo Vieira.
