FOX Sports 1 and 2 will have plenty of coverage for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Khabilov card, as weigh-ins, preview shows and other programming are all planned.
The card features former lightweight champion Benson Henderson meeting Rustam Khabilov in the main event.
“Henderson likes to fight at that smooth rhythm where he controls the pace and the space of the fight,” said analyst Brian Stann. “Khabilov is not that kind of dance partner. He’s going to disrupt that rhythm. It’s a really intriguing match up.”
Jon Anik and Kenny Florian will be calling the action on Saturday night, which begins on UFC Fight Pass and 7:30 p.m. ET. Two hours of prelims are set for FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET before the main card kicks off at 10 p.m. ET.
Karyn Bryant, Dominick Cruz, Gilbert Melendez, Michael Bisping and Megan Olivi will be on hand for the live weigh-ins on Friday at 6 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 2, while a preview show is scheduled with the same group on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET on FS1.
Also of note, Thursday night will see UFC From All Angles: Chris Weidman air on FS1 at 7 p.m. ET. The program features an in-depth look at the middleweight champion. Sunday’s UFC Ultimate Insider takes a look at Brendan Schaub, Andrei Arlovski and Tyron Woodley and airs at 7:30 p.m. ET on FS1.
Below is the current lineup for UFC Fight Night 42, along with a video preview featuring Anik and Stann. As a reminder, FightLine will be providing complete coverage of the card, including play-by-play and post-fight news and information.
