UFC Fight Night: dos Anjos vs. Fiziev will be held Saturday, July 7 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event is a match of ranked lightweights, Rafael dos Anjos vs. Rafael Fiziev. The 12-fight card will start at 6 p.m. with six preliminary matches. The main card will follow at 9 p.m. ET. ESPN is handling the broadcast for both cards.

The preliminary card will feature a light heavyweight bout against Karl Roberson (9-5) and Kennedy Nzechukwu (9-3).

Roberson was a hot prospect in the UFC a few years ago, but three straight losses have him at a bit of a crossroads. His most recent loss was a vicious second-round TKO suffered at the hands (and feet) of Khalil Rountree Jr. in March. A deduction for repeated eye pokes likely kept Nzechukwu from a decision win over Nicolae Negumereanu at UFC 272 in March, but instead, the split decision loss has him on a two-fight skid after some early impressive performances.

Here’s an outline of everything you need to know for Kennedy Nzechukwu vs. Karl Roberson at this weekend’s UFC Fight Night. All odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
