Best bets for UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs. Waterson

After some last-minute matchmaking, we finally have a confirmed main event for this week’s UFC card, and the fighters have agreed to move up a weight class to make the short notice more realistic. Two top 10 women’s strawweights will move up to flyweight, hopefully making extreme weight cuts less of a risk in the booking.

But there’s no shortage of familiar faces already booked and ready for the event, and we’ll see some value there.

Prelims start at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN+ and the main card begins at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+.
