After last weekend’s sojourn to Nashville, the UFC returns to familiar territory in its Apex facility outside Las Vegas for a welterweight showdown between two of the division’s veterans.

Vicente Luque, who was recently on a 10-1 run in the UFC’s 170-pound fold takes on former world champion Rafael Dos Anjos in a bout pivotal for both men if they are to piece together one last run at gold in a talent-rich welterweight division.
