UFC Fight Night on ESPN+: Cowboy vs. Gaethje in Vancouver streams exclusively on ESPN+ this Saturday, September 14, at 5 p.m. ET from Rogers Arena. The main event features two of the most entertaining UFC fighters as No. 4-ranked Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (36-12-0, 1 NC) and No. 5-ranked Justin Gaethje (20-2-0) square off in a five-round lightweight bout.
Cowboy will attempt to add to his record of the most wins in UFC history, while Gaethje looks to continue his climb in the rankings for a potential title shot in the near future after two straight victories over James Vick and Edson Barboza. As two of the most exciting fighters of this era, both aim to continue earning fight night bonuses, with Gaethje having earned six post-fight bonus awards in five UFC appearances and Cerrone chasing his seventh Fight of the Night bonus in Vancouver.
In the co-main event, No. 9 Glover Teixeira (29-7-0) takes on No. 13 Nikita Krylov (26-6-0) in a light heavyweight matchup. Both fighters hope to solidify their place in the division and get into the championship mix, with the Brazilian veteran Teixeira attempting to earn his third straight win this year and Krylov trying to pick up the biggest win of his career.
The all-new UFC LIVE debuts Friday, September 13, at 5:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2 from Vancouver. The 30-minute show will present fans with exclusive takes on the biggest news, stars and stories tailored to each UFC Fight Night and UFC PPV throughout the UFC season.
