UFC puts on the second event in its packed August calendar this Friday with an exciting fight night event. Returning to the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, the UFC puts on a thrilling 13-fight card headlined by Vicente Luque and Rafael dos Anjos.
The main event will be a welterweight bout between no. 10-ranked Vicente 'The Silent Assassin' Luque and no. 9-ranked Rafael dos Anjos. This is an all-Brazilian affair as the two pit their experience and resumes against each other to come out on top.
The penultimate fight of the evening will be a featherweight meeting between Cub Swanson and Hakeem Dawodu. Both having had their last fights in the second half of 2022, Swanson and Dawodu look to get back to winning ways in a major way in Sin City.
The UFC Vegas 78 card features a number of divisions, including two women's divisions being on display in three of the 13 scheduled fights, that will be in action. This event is the final stop before UFC 292: Aljamain Sterling vs. Sean O'Malley, and it promises to showcase the rising stars of the promotion, as well as those vying for title contention.
