Also on Saturay is UFC 186, live from Montreal. The fights kick off at 6:30 PM ET on Fight Pass with a solid strawweight bout between two top 10 fighters, Randa Markos and Aisling Daly. The prelims continue on to Fox Sports 1, starting at 8:00 PM ET. There’s another top fight here, as #5 Sarah Kaufman and #3 Alexis “Ally-Gator” Davis rematch with a potential title shot on the line.

The main card begins at 10:00 PM ET on pay per view. After some legal back-and-forth, the co-main event has been reset as a catchweight bout between Fabio “The Iron Hillbilly” Maldonado and the UFC return of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. The main event is a flyweight title fight as Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson takes on Kyoji Horiguchi in what should be a great fight.

Join us for two nights of punches, kicks, slams and submissions as another weekend of combat sports plays out!
