The UFC didn’t exactly stack the deck this week, but even though Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Augusto Sakai and Walt Harris vs. Marcin Tybura may not be the most thrilling main & co-main events, it’s still a solid Fight Night from top to bottom. If nothing else, Ponzinibbio vs. Baeza should make for a thriller.

For fans interested in diving deeper into the undercard, check out the Prelims Vivi below. And, a special thanks to Dan Tom, who stepped up to fill in as this week’s co-host.
