Did you know that it was double fight week? You have the Fight Pass card in Macau early in the morning, followed by a night time show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In the main event are lightweight standouts Ben Henderson and Rafael dos Anjos, while the rest of the main card unfortunately has been chewed up with injuries. Mike Pyle now fights Jordan Mein in the co-main after Mein lost his original opponent (Brandon Thatch) to injury. Ditto for Pyle, who was slated to face Demian Maia. Max Holloway now fights newcomer Clay Collard instead of the injured Mirsad Bektic.

On the plus side, Ben Saunders is back in the UFC as he fights Chris Heatherly, while the surging Neil Magny and always entertaining Alex Garcia headline the preliminary card.
