UFC Fight Night returns on Saturday, June 25th from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. There will be 12 total fights between the preliminary and main cards. The six-bout preliminary card will get started at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and ESPN+. The second match of the night will see Brian Kelleher face off against Mario Bautista in a bantamweight bout.

Kelleher enters with a 24-13 record but is coming off a loss. He was submitted by Umar Nurmagomedov in the 1st round of their fight back in March of this year. It wasn’t a good loss by any means, but Nurmagomedov is taking the UFC by storm and Kelleher was just his latest victim. Kelleher will look to get back on the horse with a win this weekend.

Bautista will have a tough test in front of him as he competes professionally for the 12th time. He has a 9-2 record and has fought five times in the UFC. He is 3-2 so far with two decision wins and his other victory by knockout. The odds are close in this one with Bautista as the narrow favorite with -175 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. These guys won’t be in the title picture anytime soon, but Bautista can certainly benefit from building some momentum.
