The UFC continues to roll along with UFC Vegas 23 on Saturday afternoon, live from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event, also known as UFC on ABC 2, is set to kick off at 11:30 a.m. ET on April 10 before heading to ESPN+ at noon.
In the night’s main event, Kevin Holland takes a short notice fight and a quick turnaround since his loss to Derek Brunson last month. Holland will meet Marvin Vettori in a middleweight clash.
UFC lightweight Jim Miller will headline the preliminary portion of the fight card. When Miller’s music hits the speakers and he starts the walk to the octagon at UFC Vegas 23 on Saturday, it will be the 37th time that he’s made that walk. Right now, Miller is tied for the most fights in UFC history with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, but on Saturday, Miller will have the record all to himself.
