Vivisection: UFC Fight Night - Nelson vs Story and MacDonald vs Saffiedine predictions, analysis, betting odds

Dallas Winston hosts as Zane Simon and Connor Ruebusch touch on all 24 fights that are split between Saturday's UFC Fight Night doubleheader.

UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Story from Stockholm, Sweden will fire off in back-to-back form this Saturday, and both cards are covered in this week's MMA Vivisection. Considering that the UFC is cramming 10-11 hours of MMA into one day, we don't feel terrible about prattling for an hour and forty minutes about 48 fighters and half as many fights.
