UFC Vegas 61: Dern vs. Yan takes place live tomorrow from the UFC Apex, and MMA News is here as each bout becomes official with the weigh-in results!
Tomorrow night’s main event is set to be #5-ranked strawweight Mackenzie Dern going against Xiaonan Yan. Dern is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Tecia Torres at UFC 273 last April but will be looking to pick up her first main event victory after falling to Marina Rodriguez at the UFC Vegas 39 headliner last October. She’ll be facing the #14-ranked Yan, who recently amassed a 13-fight unbeaten streak that spanned over a full decade.
In the co-main event, there will be a Rude Boy in Randy Brown looking to assert his alpha presence when he faces the grizzled vet Francisco Trinaldo. Also on tap will be the #12-ranked featherweight Sodiq Yusuff facing the UFC-debuting Don Shainis (12-3) as well as our Sleeper Scrap of the Week between Mike Davis and Viacheslav Borshchev.
