The UFC returns to the APEX in Vegas for a Fight Night card on May 14th. In the main event former light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz makes his first appearance since his title loss to Glover Teixeira, as he takes on top-5 contender Aleksandar Rakic. Co-main event action is also at light heavyweight, with Ryan Spann battling Ion Cutelaba.
Amanda Ribas is heading up to flyweight and has been put in against perennial contender and one-time title challenger Katlyn Chookagian. Perhaps the most entertaining fight on paper is a bantamweight scrap between Davey Grant and Louis Smolka. Don’t sleep on those prelims, either, as there’s a key women’s flyweight bout between Viviane Araujo and Andrea Lee leading into the main card.
