It all goes down later tonight (Sat., Mar. 30, 2019) at UFC on ESPN 2 from inside Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as perennial lightweight contender Edson Barboza squares off with maniac brawler Justin Gaethje in one of the most exciting matchups of the year.

In addition to the 155-pound main event, middleweight finisher Jack Hermansson will try to win his third-straight fight when he takes on veteran David Branch, former lightweight contender Michael Johnson will attempt to continue his winning ways at 145 pounds when he meets the heavy-handed Josh Emmett, and former women’s strawweight title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz will try to rebound from a disappointing knockout loss to Jessica Andrade when she takes on “Karate Hottie” Michelle Waterson.
