On Saturday, June 27, the UFC hosted its 12th broadcast on ESPN from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, former interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier clashed with New Zealand’s Dan Hooker. The Louisiana native Poirier aimed to rebound from a third-round submission loss to current titleholder Khabib Nurmagomedov in his last Octagon appearance. The Kiwi Hooker had won seven of his last eight, with five coming via stoppage. He was most recently in action against Paul Felder, eking out a narrow decision victory.

The event kicked off with the preliminary card airing live on ESPN at 6 p.m. ET. The main card followed at 8 p.m. ET, also on ESPN.
