The UFC is bringing a pretty hot Fight Night card back to the Apex facility in Las Vegas, NV this week. In the main event we’ve got a bantamweight war between Cory Sandhagen and Yadong Song. That sits alongside a middleweight banger between Chidi Njokuani and Gregory Rodrigues, and a scrappy featherweight fight between Andre Fili and Bill Algeo. By the time the night’s over, it seems guaranteed that fans will have seen a quality scrap or two.
