The UFC returns this week with something of a palate cleanser after their big UFC 239 PPV event. Germaine de Randamie takes on Aspen Ladd in a women’s bantamweight top contender bout as the main event, with Urijah Faber returning from 2.5 years of retirement to take on Ricky Simon in the co-main. The rest of the card is dotted with action fights and Team Alpha Male talent, but does little to stand out from the UFC’s constant schedule of Fight Night offerings.
There’s no separate prelim Vivi this week. All fights have been covered (in varying degrees of depth) on the main show. But we’ll be back next week with another YouTube offering for the UFC’s trip to San Antonio.
