UFC Fight Night 171 Fight Card

UFC On ESPN 9 takes place this coming Wednesday night from Jacksonville, Florida and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

In the main event of the evening, Anthony Smith looks to build on a big win over Alexander Gustafsson last time out when he goes up against Glover Teixeira, who is on a three-fight winning streak.

In the co-main event, Ovince Saint Preux makes a temporary move up to heavyweight to take on veteran campaigner Ben Rothwell, who TKO’d Stefan Struve in his last Octagon outing.

After a strong showing in his last two fights, Drew Dober now fights Alexander Hernandez, who has won three of his four bouts in the UFC so far.

Not so long ago Ricky Simon was on a lengthy winning streak, but after two losses in a row he now looks to bounce back against former flyweight title contender Ray Borg, who has won his last two fights.

Opening up the main card on ESPN will be Karl Roberson and Marvin Vettori, who both are coming off back-to-back victories in recent times.
