On Saturday, Sept. 28, the UFC will host its 18th event on ESPN+ from the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In the night’s main event, middleweights Jack Hermansson and Jared Cannonier lock horns. The Swede Hermansson has won four straight and six of his last seven inside the Octagon. He most recently defeated former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in April. Cannonier, meanwhile, is riding the momentum of back-to-back stoppage wins. The former heavyweight has topped former champion Anderson Silva and former WSOF champ David Branch in his last two appearances.

The 13-fight event kicks off with seven preliminary-card bouts streaming live on ESPN+ at 11 a.m. ET. The six-fight main card follows at 2 p.m. ET, also on ESPN+.

The fighters hit the scales on Friday, Sept. 27 at 12 p.m. ET. Video of the event appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results are below.
