UFC Prague: Jan Blachowicz vs. Thiago Santos fight card

View the entire UFC Prague: Jan Blachowicz vs. Thiago Santos fight card which takes place in Prague on Saturday.

The UFC heads overseas this week when it touches down in Prague, Czech Republic for an afternoon of fights (at least for the North American fans). This is the first time a UFC event has been held in the city.

The card, which will air entirely on ESPN+ will be headlined by a light heavyweight matchup between Jan Blachowicz and Thiago Santos who look to make a case for the next shot at the light heavyweight title. Blachowicz is on a four-fight tear including Submission of the Night performance bonus for his second round arm-triangle choke of Nikita Krylov in September. Santos is on a tear of his own winning his last three in a row over the likes of Kevin Holland, Eryk Anders and Jimi Manuwa.

The main card also features fan favorites like Gian Villante who will be facing Michal Oleksiejczuk and women’s MMA veteran Liz Carmouche who will take on Lucie Pudilova. The co-main event is a heavyweight matchup between Marcos Rogerio de Lima and Stefan Struve.
