UFC Fight Night: When does Brian Ortega vs Yair Rodriguez start this weekend in the UK and US?

This weekend’s UFC Fight Night should be an interesting contest between Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez, with both men looking to remain in contention for the featherweight title.

Ortega (15-2, 1 no contest) last fought back in September, when his second golden opportunity ended with a defeat – just like his first – when the American was bested by Alexander Volkanowski.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez (13-3, 1 NC) has yet to challenge for the title, but the Mexican showed potential in November in a stunning points loss to former champion Max Holloway. The dynamic striker even said that the UFC guaranteed him a title shot if he beat Ortega this Saturday.

Jiu-jitsu specialist Ortega probably needs a few more wins if he wants to fight for the belt again, losing to Volcanowski before losing to Holloway, meaning Saturday’s main event is a crucial battle for California.

Here’s everything you need to know.
