UFC Fight Night is set to get going this weekend from UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday, September 17 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a five-bout main card with a scheduled main event between top 10 bantamweights Cory Sandhagen and Yadong Song. The main card will also feature a featherweight bout between Andre Fili and Bill Algeo.
Algeo (16-6) is taking this fight on short notice, two months after his knockout win over Herbert Burns earned him “Performance of the Night” honors at UFC Fight Night in Long Island. Fili (21-9-1) needs something good to happen because he’s 1-3-1 in his last five and only lasted 41 seconds in his previous fight, a knockout loss to Joanderson Brito.
