Join us today on Bloody Elbow for live results and discussion for UFC Vegas 33 at the APEX facility.
The headliner of the card is a middleweight fight between ranked contenders Uriah Hall (#8) and Sean Strickland (#11). A myriad of cancellations shuffled the bout order so the new co-main event is Cheyanne Buys vs. Gloria de Paula following today’s cancellation of Kyung Ho Kang vs. Rani Yahya.
We’re a bit short-staffed this weekend and let’s be real, this is not a highly anticipated UFC card even by Fight Night standards. Most of our attention will be guided towards Bellator 263, which means we are not doing play-by-play for this UFC card.
This is an ESPN show but it’s also being simulcast on ESPN+. The five-fight preliminary card is scheduled to start at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT on ESPN and ESPN+. The five-fight main card will kick off at 9pm ET/6pm PT on the same channels.
