The UFC remains in the APEX facility this weekend with another card headlined by women hoping to solidify their claims as title contenders in their division. This time around it’s Alexa Grasso and Vivane Arajuo showcased at UFC Vegas 62 and vying for a place in the line-up to take on UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko.
The co-main event for this one is longtime fan favourite Cub Swanson, who has dropped down to bantamweight to take on Jonathan Martinez. The main card also has a match-up of top flyweights Askar Askarov and Brandon Royval. Rounding out the card is Dusko Todorovic vs. Jordan Wright and Misha Cirkunov vs. Alonzo Menifield.
The prelim card is headlined by Mana Martinez vs. Brandon Davis. Raphael Assuncao is also bured on the prelims. He takes on Victor Henry. The prelims also include former LFA champion Piera Rodriguez taking on Sam Hughes and the also entertaining Mike Jackson vs. Pete Rodriguez.
