Why does UFC Vegas 50 matter?

Thiago Santos is currently ranked No. 5 in the UFC light heavyweight division. Magomed Ankalaev is ranked No. 6 in the division. Santos, however, has lost three of his last four fights in the Octagon, including losses to former champion Jon Jones and current champion Glover Teixeira. Meanwhile, Ankalaev has been streaking towards the belt on a seven-fight winning streak.

Santos desperately needs an impressive victory over Ankalaev to get back in the thick of things when it comes to the championship picture. For Magomedov, a win could put him on the short list for a title shot.

Teixeira, meanwhile, is currently slated to defend against Jiri Prochazka at UFC 275 in June. A location for UFC 275 has yet to be announced.
