The UFC is on its final stretch of events for the year. Following up from UFC Austin, the UFC returns to the UFC APEX for the second to last event on the 2023 calendar.

This event was initially supposed to be the promotion's second trip to Shanghai, China, with the only other event to take place in the region being in November 2017 with a card headlined by Michael Bisping and Kelvin Gastelum. Due to unknown reasons, the event was moved to the UFC's home base in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The main event of the evening will be a bantamweight bout between Song Yadong and Chris Gutiérrez. Although the fight no longer takes place in Mainland China, Yadong still gets to headline and could move further up the 135-pound rankings ahead of the Christmas break.

The co-main event for this card will be another battle of ranked fighters, this time in the light heavyweight division. Anthony Smith and Khalil Rountree Jr. are set to be the sole offering from the division.

10 fights are currently confirmed for the events but the card could change. Here is all the information about the event.
