UFC held its UFC 249 PPV over the weekend, and returns on Wednesday with an 11-fight card on ESPN+. Anthony Smith and Glover Teixeira are the main event at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The six preliminary fights get underway at 6 p.m. ET, and the five-fight main card gets going at 9 p.m. ET. You can stream the event on ESPN+, and once again the event will be without fans in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Smith vs. Teixeira is the lone fight with two ranked fighters squaring off. However, the event will also have #15 lightweight Alexander Hernandez and #15 women’s bantamweight Sijara Eubanks in action. Some notable fighters on the preliminary card include Isaac Villanueva making his UFC debut, Hunter Azure defending his unbeaten 7-0 record, and Omar Morales in his second UFC fight.

We’ll be providing updates throughout the evening, but here is the full card, with each fight linked to the latest odds and betting splits.
