UFC Fight Night card: Petr Yan vs Merab Dvalishvili and all bouts this weekend

Petr Yan and Merab Dvalishvili will clash in a meeting of bantamweight contenders on Saturday, when they headline this week’s UFC Fight Night.

Former champion Yan enters this bout on the back of two straight decision losses – against successor Aljamain Sterling and rising star Sean O’Malley – both of which were debated by fans.

As such, the 30-year-old Russian knows he cannot leave room for doubt here, as he faces the in-form Dvalishvili.

The Georgian, 32, has won eight fights in a row and last competed in August, when he dominated UFC icon Jose Aldo for a points victory.
