UFC Vegas 6 is coming at you from the APEX facility from Las Vegas, Nevada, and heavyweights take center stage in the small cage. Fan favorite Derrick Lewis takes on Aleksei Oleinik in a five-round battle — if this goes into round five then something bad happened. The co-main event is no doubt a must-win for former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman against Omari Akhmedov, as Weidman looks for his first victory since 2017.

Some late breaking news is that Kevin Holland, whose fight with Trevin Giles was scrapped when Giles passed out backstage, will get re-booked against Joaquin Buckley. Hopefully he doesn’t have to deal with another cancellation this time around.

Here is what’s in store for August 8th:

Derrick Lewis vs. Aleksei Oleinik
Chris Weidman vs. Omari Akhmedov
Darren Stewart vs. Maki Pitolo
Yana Kunitskaya vs. Julija Stoliarenko
