The UFC heads back to Las Vegas this weekend for UFC 250: Nunes vs. Spencer. Nunes, the women’s pound-for-pound best, looks to defend her featherweight title against former Invicta FC’s champion Felicia Spencer. In about a year since joining the UFC, Spencer has established herself as a game-changer, winning twice via finish. She’s making a name for herself as she took everything Cyborg Santos could throw at her, before eventually dropping a decision. Can Spencer shock the world Saturday night by taking down the champ? We will soon find out.

Co-headlining the event will be two of the bantamweight’s best, as #9 Cody Garbrandt makes his long-awaited return after a year away, against #5 ranked Raphael Assuncao. Assuncao, a perpetual contender, looks to get back on track after losing a unanimous decision to Cory Sandhagen last August. Garbrandt is heavily focused and motivated to get back to title conversations, after losing his previous three fights via KO, ending his streak of 11 straight victories to start his professional career.

The entire card will be filled with action, as the UFC continues its use of the smaller, 25′ octagon at the APEX, instead of the standard 30′ cage. The purpose of the smaller octagon has historically increased fight finish rates and shortened average fight times. This is due to the ability to create more action and engagement between the two fighters. Take note.
