After a rare week without an event, the MMA industry leaders return on Saturday with UFC On ESPN 46. Kai Kara-France comes in off the back of an unsuccessful challenge for Brandon Moreno’s interim UFC Flyweight Championship. He looks to bounce back in the main event against Amir Albazi, who is riding a five-fight winning streak.
The Dragon will re-enter the Octagon as ‘Bruce Leeroy’ Alex Caceres tangles with Daniel Pineda. There’s a record-extending 42nd UFC bout for the eternal Jim Miller as he takes on Jared Gordon. The prelims feature the second man on the all-time list for most fights as former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski fights for the company for the 40th time against Don’Tale Mayes. Arlovski also has the most wins in UFC history with 23.
