Heavyweights take center stage at UFC Vegas 18 this Saturday. The UFC’s first event of February 2021 pits Alistair Overeem against Alexander Volkov in the main event. With the heavyweight division once again moving along — upcoming main events include Ciryl Gane vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Curtis Blaydes vs. Derrick Lewis, not to mention March’s Miocic vs. Ngannou 2 — a big performance from either man could land them right back in the title picture.

The big men aren’t the only ones hunting for a title opportunity. Also back in action on the card is former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar. Now competing in his third weight class, at bantamweight, Edgar, entering off a win over Pedro Munhoz, could land yet another title shot with a big win over Cory Sandhangen. Of course, Sandhagen is playing the motivated up-and-comer role, and is on the verge of a title shot himself.

The full UFC Vegas 18 card weighs in Friday, with things getting underway at 12PM ET. Check below for results. The event takes place Saturday, February 6 airing live on ESPN+ (TSN in Canada).

All fighters made weight for Saturday’s card, with heavyweight Alistair Overeem the last to hit the scales.
