The UFC is doing the rare Sunday-Friday turnaround, as right around the corner is the promotion’s debut in Utica, New York. In the main event, bantamweight contenders Jimmie Rivera and Marlon Moraes square off in a highly anticipated showdown that should determine the next title challenger. The co-main pits rising lightweight contender Gregor Gillespie against Vinc Pichel. Also part of the main card is a welterweight battle between Jake Ellenberger and Ben Saunders, in what is a must-win for both men.

Of note on the prelims is the short notice debut of two-division Titan FC champion Jose Torres, as “Shorty” takes on Jarred Brooks in the Fight Pass opener. That should be absolutely fantastic.
