UFC is headed back to Vancouver this week, for the first time since 2016. And they’re bringing one hell of a main event with them, even if a lot of the rest of the card is a muddled mix of middling action fighters and unknown newcomers. As with many of the non-PPV events this year, it’s all about the main event. To that end, Donald Cerrone vs. Justin Gaethje should be one hell of a ride. Toss in Nikita Kryolv vs. Glover Teixeira and the long awaited return of Todd Duffee, and it should be an action-forward evening.
