UFC’s final event of the summer finds the promotion in uncharted territory: Moscow, Russia. The middle weekend of three straight UFC cards will be streamed live exclusively to UFC Fight Pass this Saturday morning and afternoon.

Main card action will begin this Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. EDT, 11 a.m. PDT on Fight Pass, right after an eight-fight undercard at 10:30 a.m. EDT, 7:30 a.m. PDT.

 

Highlighting UFC Fight Night Moscow’s four-fight main card is the main event, a Heavyweight contest matching No. 8 contender Mark Hunt (12-12-1, one no contest) and No. 11 contender Aleksei Oleinik in a five-round contest.

Hunt has posted a 2-2 record with one no contest in his last five UFC appearances, with his last fight resulting in a loss to Curtis Blaydes by unanimous decision during the co-main event of UFC 221 on Feb. 10 on pay-per-view.

In the other corner, Oleinik has posted a 3-2 record in his last five UFC appearances, most recently emerging victorious from his fight against Junior Albini in the undercard of UFC 224 on FX on May 12 in Rio de Janeiro by first-round submission.

Checking the UFC.com tale of the tape, Oleinik holds the advantage in both reach (80 inches to 72 inches) and leg reach (45 inches to 43 inches,) respectively.

Let’s go with Oleinik by knockout in the main event on Saturday.

No. 4 contender Jan Blachowitz (21-7) vs. Nikita Krylov (24-5) [Light Heavyweight, co-main event]

No. 12 contender Andrei Arlovski (27-16, one no contest) vs. No. 14 contender Shamil Abdurakhimov (18-4) [Heavyweight]
