On Saturday, Nov. 5, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 98: Dos Anjos vs. Ferguson from the Mexico City Arena in Mexico City.

In the night’s main event, former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos looked to rebound from losing his belt as he took on hard-charging Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson. The Brazilian dos Anjos fell victim to a first-round TKO to current champion Eddie Alvarez in July. Prior to that, the 32-year-old had won five straight. Ferguson, meanwhile, had reeled off eight straight wins and had won 11 of his 12 Octagon appearances. “El Cucuy” had submitted four of his last five opponents, including his last two via D’arce choke.

The co-main event featured another former TUF winner, Diego Sanchez. The New Mexico-based fighter welcomed Polish submission ace Marcin Held to the promotion.

The 13-fight event kicked off Saturday with three bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card airing at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
