The UFC’s final show of 2020 is more stacked than many of its pay-per-views. On December 19th in the main event of UFC Vegas 17, welterweight contender Leon Edwards looks to extend his winning streak to nine when he takes on fast rising contender Khamzat Chimaev, who’s actually the betting favorite for this one.

The rest of the card (outside of the Greg Hardy vs. Marcin Tybura fight, which could be a rough watch) is outstanding. Stephen Thompson vs. Geoff Neal is the co-main event, while Marlon Moraes battles Rob Font, Misha Cirkunov squares off with Ryan Spann, and Jose freaking Aldo kicks off this Fight Night against Marlon Vera.

Oh, and the prelims? Alexandre Pantoja vs. Manel Kape is a big flyweight fight and it isn’t even the featured bout. That honor belongs to Khaos Williams and Michel Pereira, who are primed for lots of violence.

Here’s the full lineup for December 19th. The whole card is on ESPN+:
