The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns this weekend with UFC Vegas 73 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is headlined by a women’s strawweight showdown between No. 8-ranked contender Mackenzie Dern and No. 14-ranked Angela Hill.
Dern vs. Hill was originally scheduled to take place at UFC on ABC 4 in Charlotte on May 13 but was moved into the headlining spot after the previous headliner (Raquel Pennington vs. Irene Aldana) was scrapped when Irene Aladana was moved to UFC 289 where she will face Amanda Nunes for the bantamweight championship.
In the co-main event of UFC Vegas 73, middleweights Edmen Shahbazyan and Anthony Hernandez will go toe-to-toe.
UFC Vegas 73 will kick off with the preliminary card beginning at 4:00 p.m. ET and the main card getting underway at 7:00 p.m. ET. The entire card will stream live on ESPN+.
Ahead of this weekend’s event, all of the fighters had to step onto the scale for the official weigh-ins.
