UFC on FOX 23 hits Denver, Colorado this weekend for an evening of great fights. Heading in to this Saturday’s event, stories in the women’s bantamweight, welterweight and heavyweight division’s are stealing headlines. In the main event we see Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena poised for action. With a title shot against Amanda Nunes looming, expect to see the best of these budding prospects in Denver. Filling the co-main slot are Donald Cerrone and Jorge Masvidal, and we can certainly expect a striking-heavy bonanza in this pairing.

‘Cowboy’ wants to make it five straight at welterweight, but Masvidal has plans to play spoiler, this is one to watch. Over to the 265-pound division, and rising prospect Francis Ngannou will battle former champion Andrei Arlovski. ‘Predator’ has been smashing his way through the competition, all the while building a growing fan base. Arlovski, although 37 and without a win in three, is a very experienced and dangerous foe. You can tune in to see the early weigh-in results throughout the morning, or check in at 7 PM ET for the traditional scales show.
