WASHINGTON – For the first time since 2011, the UFC has set up shop in the nation’s capital city this week.
UFC on ESPN 7 takes place Saturday at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. The main card airs on ESPN following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.
In the main event, Alistair Overeem (45-17 MMA, 10-6 UFC) takes on the undefeated Jairzinho Rozenstruik (9-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in a heavyweight showdown that may have title implications.
In the co-feature, Cynthia Calvillo (8-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) meets Marina Rodriguez (12-0-1 MMA, 2-0-1 UFC) in a catchweight bout. Calvillo on Friday missed weight for the second time in three fights. She came in at 120.5 pounds, 4.5 pounds north of the women’s strawweight limit.
Friday, the fighters made weight in the morning, then squared off shortly after. Check out the highlights in the video above, and don’t miss our exclusive photo gallery below.
