Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just over 24 hours away from its upcoming UFC Vegas 61 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, headlined by a 115-pound showdown between Top 10 strawweights Mackenzie Dern and Xiaonan Yan. The action gets underway this Sat. night (Oct. 1, 2022) on ESPN+ from inside the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, and also features a welterweight co-headliner between Randy Brown vs. Francisco Trinaldo.
Before the ESPN+ live stream gets underway this weekend in “Sin City,” which also features the heavyweight collision between veteran bruisers Ilir Latifi and Aleksei Oleinik, all 26 fighters must hit the scale to prove themselves worthy. Note: Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) affords a one-pound allowance in all non-title fights.
