The UFC’s return to the Apex facility this week took a serious blow with the loss of the main event bout between Rafael Fiziev and Rafael dos Anjos. In their place, light heavyweight prospect Jamahal Hill takes the next step toward contender status against wildman Johnny Walker. There’s also a middleweight bout between Joaquin Buckley & Abdul Razak Alhassan that promises violence, but that’s about it.
