The UFC has a lot of fighters signed that need fights and by god they’re all fighting this Saturday night in Las Vegas. A 15-bout Fight Night, featuring a bunch of bouts that were supposed to happen last year before injuries, travel restrictions, and COVID infections got in the way. The whole thing is headlined by a quality scrap between Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis. After that, notoriety takes a sharp decline.
