The UFC returns for the start of a four week run of smaller shows. Hopefully the ESPN+ card pacing fans got from the recent Assuncao vs. Moraes 2 event holds, otherwise some of these shows could really drag. This week, in Wichita, the main attraction is a heavyweight bout between former champ Junior dos Santos and former challenger Derrick Lewis. An all-violence welterweight fight between Elizeu Zaleski and Curtis Millender stands out in the co-main as well.

If you’re interested in the prelims, you can find our breakdown of those fights below (and watch them the old fashioned way on YouTube as well):
