The UFC makes its return to Mexico on Saturday with UFC on ESPN+ 17, which takes place at Mexico City Arena with a 12-fight card that streams on ESPN+. A matchup of featherweight contenders headlines the event. Mexico’s own Yair Rodriguez (11-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) looks to shine on home turf when he meets one of the UFC’s longest tenured fighters in Jeremy Stephens (28-16 MMA, 15-15 UFC). The card doesn’t have much meat on the bone beyond that, though.
