A five-round heavyweight battle between Derrick Lewis and Aleksei Oleinik headlines an upcoming UFC Fight Night card, taking place at APEX in Las Vegas, NV on August 8. The co-main event is a middleweight bout between Omari Akhmedov and Chris Weidman.
Also on the main card another 185-pound matchup, featuring Maki Pitolo and Darren Stewart, and a women’s bantamweight contest between Yana Kunitskaya and Julija Stoliarenko. In addition Beneil Dariush and Scott Holtzman square off at lightweight.
The current (as of writing) UFC Vegas 6 fight card comprises eleven bouts in total. The lineup can be found below. Women’s MMA bout between strawweights Nadia Kassem and Miranda Granger, and a featherweight matchup between Alex Caceres and Giga Chikadze are yet to be listed on the official website of the promotion.
As always, the fight card is subject to change. The recent UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs Shahbazyan ended up with only eight bouts, following a number of last minute withdrawals due to various reasons, including positive test for COVID-19 and weight cut issues (results here).
The finalized UFC Vegas 6 card and order of the bouts is expected to be announced shortly.
