The UFC in Las Vegas on Saturday for UFC 245. The event is the final 2019 pay-per-view card for the promotion and the 13-fight card is one of the more stacked events of the year.
UFC 245 features three title fights at the top of the card. In the headlining matchup, Kamaru Usman puts his welterweight title on the line against former-interim champion Colby Covington. In the co-headliner, 145-pound champion Max Holloway faces No. 1 ranked contender Alexander Volkanovski. Before those two bouts, two-division women’s champion Amanda Nunes matches up against ex-women’s featherweight champ Germaine de Randamie in a bantamweight scrap.
The five-fight main card also features former featherweight champion Jose Aldo dropping to bantamweight to face ex-WSOF bantamweight kingpin and recent UFC title challenger Marlon Moraes. Opening the main card is a bantamweight matchup between title hopeful Petr Yan and Urijah Faber, who has four UFC title challenges on his record.
The four-fight ESPN2 prelim card is bookended by welterweight scraps between Matt Brown and Ben Saunders and Geoff Neal vs. Mike Perry.
The fight to watch on the UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+ early prelim card is the flyweight scrap between Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara France.
