Join us today (May 22) on Bloody Elbow for live results, discussion, round scoring, and full play-by-play as UFC Vegas 27: Font vs. Garbrandt goes down at the APEX facility in Las Vegas. This will be the final UFC show of the month before a Memorial Day weekend break.

The main event features former men’s bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt against surging contender Rob Font. There’s also a lot riding on the co-main event, as women’s strawweights Yan Xiaonan and Carla Esparza square off in a likely #1 contender matchup. Esparza is the former champ of this division and has not gotten another crack at the belt since losing it to Joanna Jedrzejczyk in 2015, whereas Xiaonan is looking for her first ever title shot.

This is an earlier start time than usual. The main card for this one kicks off at 7PM ET on ESPN+, while the six-fight preliminary card is scheduled to start at 4pm ET/1pm PT on ESPN+. We will have play-by-play only for the main event.
