UFC Fight Night on FOX Sports 1: Henderson vs. dos Anjos viewing and schedule guide
AUG 17, 2014 11:00a ET
For the first time ever, the UFC will land in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the UFC Fight Night on FOX Sports 1 card featuring former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson in the main event as he looks for his third win in a row while taking on top five ranked fighter Rafael dos Anjos in a pivotal matchup at 155 pounds.
With champion Anthony Pettis and top contender Gilbert Melendez tied up until December, a win for Henderson on Saturday night is crucial if he hopes to get back in the title race following the next bout for the belt later this year.
Also on the card, Mike Pyle looks to rally behind his last fight where he TKO'd TJ Waldberger as he faces Canadian knockout artist Jordan Mein. Both fighters are looking to climb the welterweight ladder, and a win on Saturday would go a long way towards putting one of them in the top 10.
To make sure you catch all the action from Tulsa, we're giving you a viewing guide for the entire week's events from the weigh-ins until the event is over.
