Another fascinating night of UFC action awaits us on Saturday, as the latest edition of Fight Night takes place. This weekend's card is fully stacked with several explosive fights in store for us. Let' break down the fight card for UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs. Chikadze.

The headliners will collide in what should be a cracking contest in the Octagon. This has the potential to be one of the fights of the year between two talented and powerful strikers from the featherweight division, who are ranked ninth (Barboza) and tenth in the division (Chikadze).

The co-main event will also have a lot on the line as the Season 29 of The Ultimate Fighter wraps up on Saturday with Bryan Battle and Gilbert Urbina facing off. The two middleweight talents have shown great skills this season. And it will be interesting to see who comes out on top on Saturday.

Another Ultimate Fighter clash will see bantamweights Ricky Turcios and Brady Hiestand face off. The two TUF finalists will be fighting for a lot on Saturday, with a guaranteed UFC contract on the line.

The journey to the finals for all four fighters has been a hard and eventful one. The experience of taking part in the Ultimate Fighter series is unique and requires a lot of mental and physical strength, and victory will taste very sweet for the two who come out on top.
