Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just over 24 hours away from its upcoming UFC Vegas 78 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, headlined by a 170-pound showdown between Top 10 welterweight contender Vicente Luque and former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. The action gets underway this Sat. night (Aug. 12, 2023) on ESPN and ESPN+ from inside the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, and also features a featherweight co-headliner between Cub Swanson and Hakeem Dawodu.
