The UFC is back in New York after almost a year away, with a stacked Fight Night offering for ABC viewers. At the top of the card, featherweight contenders Yair Rodriguez and Brian Ortega face off for a possible title bid. Throw in scraps between Michelle Waterson & Amanda Lemos, Li Jingliang & Muslim Salikhov, and Shane Burgos against Charles Jordain and it should make for a fun night of action fights.
