UFC is back with its UFC 271 PPV. The event takes place this weekend at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The five-bout main card gets started at 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, February 12 and will be highlighted by Israel Adesanya vs. Robert Whittaker 2 for the middleweight title. Before the main card, the preliminary card gets started at 8:00 p.m. ET and features a women’s flyweight match between #12 Roxanne Modafferi and #15 Casey O’Neill.

Modafferi is a 39-year-old fighter with a professional record of 25-20. Her record may make it obvious, but she just can’t build any momentum. She hasn’t won back-to-back fights since 2017. In fact, she is currently on a two-match-skid with back-to-back unanimous decision losses against Viviane Araujo and Taila Santos. The latter loss came at UFC 266 in September of 2021. O’Neill is a young up-and-comer and Modafferi is in desperate need of a win if she wants one more shot at gold for her career. She is the underdog with +300 odds.

O’Neill has had an impressive start to her young career. The 24-year-old enters undefeated with an 8-0 record. In her last match, she defeated Antonina Shevchenko by a second-round knockout. This will be her fourth fight in the UFC and her first as a ranked competitor. With a win this weekend, O’Neill could quickly climb up the ranks and be in the title picture in the future. She is a heavy favorite with -400 odds to beat Modafferi at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The full event will get started with the early prelims at 6 p.m. ET followed by the prelims at 8 p.m. The main card for UFC 271 will be live-streamed on ESPN+ PPV, which will cost $69.99 for the full card. The link provides an option for simply buying the card or buying the Disney Plus bundle that includes Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+.
