UFC Vegas 42 airs live from UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday November 13, which makes it Sunday November 14 in Australia. The main event is a five-round featherweight bout between former 145-pound champion Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez.
Holloway (22-6) last fought in January when he earned a unanimous decision again Calvin Kattar. With the win he rebounded from a pair of defeats suffered against reigning featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.
Rodriguez (13-2, 1 NC) was last in action back in October 2019 when he took a unanimous decision against Jeremy Stephens in the immediate rematch of their first fight that ended in no contest due to an accidental eye poke. Before that he scored the fifth-round KO against Chan Sung Jung.
