UFC returns on Saturday with another card at the Apex in Las Vegas.

Headlining the event is an exciting featherweight bout where No.11 ranked Sodiq Yusuff takes on No. 13 ranked veteran Edson Barboza in a five-rounder. Yusuff is 6-1 in the UFC and has back-to-back wins going into the fight, while fan favorite Barboza comes from a first-round KO against Billy Quarantillo.

The card also features a co-main event where No. 9 ranked flyweight Jennifer Maia will face No. 11 ranked Viviane Araujo. The latter is riding a two-fight losing skid and is in need of a win to keep her place in the rankings.

We will also see a highly interesting bantamweight bout between No. 13 ranked Jonathan Martinez and No. 14 ranked Adrian Yanez.
