On Saturday, March, the UFC touched down at the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan., for its fourth event on ESPN+.

In the night’s main event, former heavyweight title challenger Derrick Lewis took on former champion Junior dos Santos. Lewis looked to rebound from his UFC 230 submission loss to current titleholder Daniel Cormier in November. The Brazilian dos Santos had won two straight since a failed bid to recapture the belt against then-champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 211, most recently stopping Tai Tuivasa in December.

The 13-fight event kicked off with seven preliminary-card bouts streaming on ESPN+ at 5 p.m. ET. The six-fight main card followed at 8 p.m. ET, also on ESPN+.
