UFC Vegas 61 Results: When, Where, and Who?
UFC Vegas 61 takes place on Saturday, October 1, at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight card is topped by a key strawweight match-up.
UFC Vegas 61 main event: #5 Mackenzie Dern vs. #6 Xiaonan Yan
Following a few missteps on the scale, No. 5 ranked strawweight Mackenzie Dern (12-2) has been rocketing towards a title shot. She had a four-fight winning streak derailed by Marina Rodriguez late last year, but bounced back with a win over highly regarded Tecia Torres.
She steps into the cage opposite No. 6 ranked Xiaonan Yan (15-3, 1 NC), who is looking to rebound from a two-fight losing skid. Yan’s two recent losses were to Rodriguez and current UFC strawweight champion Carla Esparza, whom Yan would like to take another crack at.
