On Saturday, Nov. 7, the UFC hosted its 40th broadcast on ESPN+ from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The event once again featured no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the night’s main event, former light heavyweight title challengers collided as Brazilians Thiago Santos and Glover Teixeira locked horns. Santos was coming off a lengthy layoff due to knee injuries suffered in his title bout against then-champion Jon Jones. Prior to the loss, Santos had won four straight. The 41-year-old Teixeira had been working toward another shot at UFC gold, reeling off four straight victories leading into the headlining affair.
The event kicked off with a preliminary-card stream on ESPN+ at 5 p.m. ET. The night’s main card followed at 8 p.m. ET, also on ESPN+. For the full results of the event, click here.
