There’s only two events left on the UFC calendar in 2023. After a year of massive upsets and events, the promotion returns home to Las Vegas for a pair of events, one at the Apex facility and one at T-Mobile Arena.

First, a pair of bantamweights meet in the main event on Saturday when Song Yadong takes on Chris Gutierrez. The original hope was for Yadong to battle former champion Petr Yan in a main event emanating from Shanghai. But with the change in main event, UFC opted to bring the card back to the Apex.

The company then hosts UFC 296 at the T-Mobile Arena on Dec. 16, sticking to its tradition of closing out the pay-per-view calendar in Las Vegas. A pair of title fights top the card: welterweight champion Leon Edwards vs. Colby Covington and flyweight champ Alexandre Pantoja vs. Brandon Royval. UFC president Dana White also announced title fights for the first three pay-per-views of 2024.
