On Thursday, July 7, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 90: Dos Anjos vs. Alvarez from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos puts his title on the line against former Bellator MMA titleholder Eddie Alvarez. The Brazilian dos Anjos rides a five-fight winning streak, including a 66-second destruction of Donald Cerrone in his first title defense last December. Alvarez, meanwhile, earned his crack at gold with back-to-back wins over former champion Anthony Pettis and former Strikeforce kingpin Gilbert Melendez.

The co-main event features a battle of heavyweight knockout artists as veteran Roy Nelson clashes with Derrick Lewis. The 40-year-old Nelson snapped a three-fight skid in February with a decision win over Jared Rosholt. Lewis enters the bout having won three straight, all via knockout.

The 12-fight event kicks off Thursday with eight preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 p.m. ET. The four-fight main card takes place at 10 p.m. ET, also on UFC Fight Pass.

The fighters will hit the scales at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
