UFC might have merged with WWE as part of the Endeavor deal a couple of weeks ago, but it is business as usual in the Octagon this weekend. Anyone expecting chair-swinging and ladder matches will be disappointed, but fans of MMA are in for a treat nonetheless as the company presents a solid Fight Night card at Las Vegas’ UFC Apex.
Headline action comes from the lightweight division, where Rafael Fiziev looks to rebound from defeat last time out. He’ll be facing Poland’s ‘Gamer’ Mateusz Gamrot. Chief support comes from the featherweights, with ‘Thug Nasty’ Bryce Mitchell going up against three-time Performance of the night recipient Dan Ige.
