How To Watch UFC Fight Night 158 Prelims
The UFC is in Vancouver on Saturday, September 14 for UFC Fight Night 158. The card, which streams on ESPN+ marks the UFC’s first visit to Vancouver since 2016. A pivotal lightweight matchup between Donald Cerrone and Justin Gaethje headlined the fight card.
Before the five-fight main card begins, the promotion presents six preliminary card bouts on ESPN+.
The final prelim bout could affect the futures of the two competitors. That heavyweight matchup pits the No. 14 ranked Marcin Tybura against the No. 15 ranked Augusto Sakai.
Tybura has struggled in his past four fights. Since late November the 33-year-old has gone 1-3. He is coming off a second-round knockout loss to Shamil Abdurakhimov. A loss here will likely see him tumble from the rankings.
Sakai, who is 28, is 2-0 in the UFC and coming off a win over former champion Andrei Arlovski. It might be a little early to start testing Sakai against ranked opponents, but the lack of depth in the heavyweight division leaves little option for the eight-year pro. Sakai’s only loss is a 2017 split-decision to recent Bellator heavyweight title challenger Cheick Kongo.
