The UFC live streaming online results and TV coverage come via multiple sources Saturday night.
According to an April 23 Las Vegas Sun report, Jon Jones will be the favorite heading into Saturday’s main event bout, priced at -600 at the time of their report. In his last fight, the former champion Jones recorded the unanimous decision over now-champion Daniel Cormier. However, Jones soon was out of the UFC due to various legal issues and substance abuse violations, but has made his return. He was originally scheduled to take on Cormier for the title, but the current champ withdrew due to announcement of an injured left foot earlier this month. That brought in Ovince Saint Preux as the replacement. At 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, Saint Preux was listed as a +450 underdog. His last fight was also a unanimous decision win over Rafael Cavalcante.

Johnson is 22-2-1 while Cejudo is a perfect 10-0 coming into this matchup for the Flyweight belt.

Rodriguez, who has a total of eight UFC fights so far, only has one loss to his record, while Fili is 15-3 overall.

Former champion Anthony Pettis is listed at -175, while Edson Barboza is a +145 underdog.
