It all goes down later tonight (Sat., May 8, 2021) at UFC Vegas 26 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as former Invicta FC champion Michelle Waterson takes on rising contender Marina Rodriguez in the main event. The two strawweights will be competing at 125 pounds due to the short-notice booking.

In addition to the headlining act, UFC legend Donald Cerrone will make his 37th walk to the Octagon in a co-main event tilt opposite dangerous veteran Alex Morono, welterweight knockout artist Geoff Neal will try to regain momentum in a crucial matchup with Neil Magny, and lightweight contender Gregor Gillespie will make his long-awaited return to action in a barn burner fight with Brazilian finisher Carlos Diego Ferreira.
