The UFC is back in our lives for 12 consecutive weeks of events, starting with a June 4th Fight Night at the APEX in Las Vegas. In the main event, heavyweights Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik square off in what should be a striking-heavy matchup. In the co-main event, featherweight contender Dan Ige takes on the undefeated Movsar Evloev.

Did you know Felice Herrig and Karolina Kowalkiewicz are still on the UFC roster? It’s true! And they’re going to rematch on the main card, four years removed from when Kowalkiewicz beat Herrig by split decision at UFC 223 in Brooklyn. They’re both badly in need of a win and a loss might mean a pink slip.
