It’s been something of a quiet week in MMA, but business will start to pick up again this weekend when the octagon reopens for business at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Heavyweights are on the menu this weekend, with heavy-handed Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Augusto Sakai set to go toe to toe in the night’s main event, while octagon veterans Walt Harris and Marcin Tybura face off in the co-main feature.
On this week’s show we take a look at both heavyweight encounters, and also spotlight some of the other matchups we’re looking forward to this weekend, including the return of a couple of British stars looking to make a point.
We also discuss the long-awaited return to action of Yair Rodriguez, who comes back to the cage to face former champ Max Holloway in a huge matchup at 145 pounds, and former light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who now has new representation in the form of Richard Schafer.
We break it all down and weigh in with our takes as we bring you right up to speed ahead of fight night this weekend.
Enjoy the show, then enjoy the fights!
