Saturday’s UFC Vegas 35 is pulling double-duty in a sense.
The Fight Night card once again sees the promotion back on ESPN. But in addition to being your run of the mill Fight Night event, it also serves as The Ultimate Fighter 29 finale, which isn’t getting its own card this year.
Instead, with the season coming to a close, the middleweight and bantamweight finals were booked just under the main event on Saturday’s card. Plus a third fight, featuring season standout Andre Petroski and short-notice TUF replacement fighter Michael Gillmore.
Also on the card Saturday, Kevin Lee is back to welterweight, Sam Alvey looks to snap a rough skid, and Vanessa Demopoulos is due to enter the octagon on short notice. Weigh-ins for the event take place Friday in Las Vegas — we’ll have results below as they happen!
Only promotional newcomer Mana Martinez was heavy on Friday, coming in 4lbs over the bantamweight non-title limit.
