The UFC continues to roll along at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas with a pair of top-ranked heavyweights competing in the UFC Vegas 19 main event on Saturday.
Former UFC heavyweight title contender Derrick Lewis will meet fellow big man, Curtis Blaydes for the opportunity to move one step closer towards another crack at the gold.
In the night’s co-main event, Yana Kunitskaya will meet Ketlen Vieira in a catchweight bout after Vieira failed to make the bantamweight limit yesterday.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski continues to strike down Father Time as he rolls along into yet another fight at the 265-pound weight limit. “Pitbull” Arlovski meets Tom Aspinall in the opening bout on the main card.
