Check out the fight card for the UFC’s next trip to Mexico on August 5th.

On the heels of a major PPV, the UFC will take the Octagon back to Mexico City for an August 5th Fight Night event in Arena Mexico. While the show doesn’t have a lot of big stars, it does have a distinct local flavor and will feature a flyweight fight as the main event – a rarity these days. 23-year-old Brandon Moreno will look to continue his surprising climb up the 125-pound ranks as he takes on fellow 23-year-old Sergio Pettis in the headliner.

The co-main will feature a Mexican fighter, as Alexa Grasso will look for her second UFC win when she takes on the tough Randa Markos.

Also way down the card is former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, who meets Sam Alvey.
