On Saturday, Dec. 17, the UFC will host UFC on Fox 22: VanZant vs. Waterson from the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif.

In the night’s main event, former Invicta atomweight champion Michelle Waterson takes on fellow Invicta veteran Paige VanZant in a strawweight affair. Waterson will compete for the first time in nearly 18 months after she submitted Angela Magana in her UFC debut in July of 2015. The 30-year-old has won seven of her last eight fights. VanZant, meanwhile, bounced back from an one-sided loss to Rose Namajunas by defeating Bec Rawlings in August with a flashy, head kick knockout.

Also on the card, former WEC featherweight champion and multiple-time UFC title challenger Urijah Faber will compete for the final time as he faces England’s Brad Pickett.

The 13-fight event kicks off Saturday with three preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 3:30 p.m. ET. Six additional preliminary card bouts air live on Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card taking place at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

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