The scrap is set to go down in the Nationwide Arena in what is slated to be the first Fight Night show on the road. The UFC has been holding their weekly non PPV shows inside the Apex Facility in Las Vegas and they’ve had a lot of success with this maneuver.

UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski is looking to maintain an active strength of schedule and will want to face new up and comers.
