It’s not quite the star-studded PPV event the UFC normally ends a year with, but rumor has it 2020 has been a little weird. But don’t sleep on this fight card, one that will have to last UFC fans four weeks until the next event.

Four fights on the main card feature a former UFC champion or title contender. Meanwhile, the main event is so tight on paper that odds have flipped well ahead of weigh-ins, with the lower-ranked fighter becoming the betting favorite.

Prelims begin at 4 p.m. ET, and the main card starts at 7 p.m. (both ESPN+).
