Curtis Blaydes-Chris Daukaus Headline UFC Fight Night Saturday

After a trip to London, the Octagon stops by Columbus, Ohio this Saturday for UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Daukaus.

The event marks the second consecutive to feature heavyweight fighters. Curtis Blaydes and Chris Daukaus square off in the main event from the Nationwide Arena live on ESPN+.

Originally, the card was to feature Jan Blachowicz defending his light heavyweight title against Aleksandar Rakic. However, an injury to Blachowicz delayed the fight.

Along with Blaydes vs. Daukaus, Joanne Wood meets Alexa Grasso in the co-main event and Matt Brown takes on Bryan Barberena. 

The remaining main card will see Askar Askarov battle Kai Kara-France and Ilir Latifi meet Alexey Oleynik. 

Among those set for action on the prelims includes Jennifer Maia, Neil Magny and Sara McMann.

Blaydes has gone 5-1 over his last six with the lone loss coming to Derrick Lewis. He earned a decision win in September over Jairzinho Rozenstruik. 

Daukaus had his five-fight win streak snapped by Lewis in December when the two squared off.
