On Saturday January 13 UFC returns with the first card of 2024.

In the main event we will see top ranked light heavyweights Johnny Walker and Magomed Ankalaev clash in a rematch. The pairing fought this past October, but their fight ended up as a no contest when Ankalaev threw a knee to his grounded opponent.

There may be some bad blood entering the octagon again as the knee stopped Walker from continuing to fight in October.

The Ankalaev vs Walker 2 fight card also features a flyweight bout where top 10 ranked Matheus Nicolau and Manel Kape will square off.

The card also features fighters like veterans Jim Miller and Andrei Arlovski, as well as an interesting bantamweight bout between Ricky Simon vs. Mario Bautista.
