This week’s UFC card isn’t likely to get any outside of the most hardcore fans excited. And even among them, there’s a fair chance that they’re just being contrarian. The main even between Cynthia Calvillo and Jessica Eye is a fight few saw coming as a potential main event, and while the co-main event between Karl Roberson and Marvin Vettori should be fun, there’s very little in the way of divisionally relevant matchmaking top to bottom.
Still, for those who can’t bear to miss a moment, check out the Prelims Vivi below, where we’ll get into all the undercard nitty-gritty.
