What to Watch For

Now that you know how to watch the event, here's a few things to watch for over the course of the night.


Frankie Edgar Needs a Win...Badly

Although each of the decisions in Edgar's last three fights could have gone either way, the official result was a loss for the 31-year-old former lightweight champion.

Facing the possibility of a four-fight losing streak, Edgar needs to stop his skid. He won't be facing a pound-for-pound top-five fighter on Saturday night, but Charles Oliveira is still a dangerous opponent.

His height and submission prowess could be a tough test for Edgar.


A Gracie Fights in an UFC Event

The Gracie name is like a royalty in MMA. With the UFC being the premier fighting promotion in the world, anytime a Gracie competes in an UFC event, it is a noteworthy occurrence. Roger Gracie will take on Tim Kennedy on Saturday as part of the main card.

Gracie has a five-inch height advantage, but Kennedy's power and explosion could create issues for Gracie. The latter has never been especially good on his feet and Kennedy would be smart to try and keep the fight standing.


Can The Spider Reign Supreme Again?

UFC middleweight champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva has a fairly tough test on his hands with Chris Weidman. The challenger doesn't have the experience Silva has, but he's a very strong wrestler and a good enough athlete to conduct himself respectably as a striker.

This fight will either signal the end of a historic reign as champion for Silva or be just another example of why he's considered by many to be the greatest of all time.
