The UFC make their debut in Uruguay with a thrilling title fight between UFC flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko, and former 135lb title challenger, Liz Carmouche.

The two talented 125lbers have fought once before in 2010, with Carmouche coming out on top due to doctor's stoppage. However, fast forward nine years and Shevchenko is now one of the most dominant champions inside the promotion. Undefeated since she dropped down to 125lb, the 27-year old has looked untouchable in her new weight class.

So can Carmouche shock everyone and prove that she's the one flyweight in the world who has the champion's number or will Shevchenko's reign of terror continue?

We've also got a fantastic welterweight match-up between fan favourite, Mike Perry, and fight-finishing machine, Vicente Luque. Both fighters have earned their fair share of performance bonuses due to their fun, yet extremely violent fighting styles. However, considering both men are all about their offense, which will one of them will fall first?

There are plenty of other exciting match-ups on the main card for you to enjoy, and we'll go through each of them in an in-depth breakdown of this weekend's card.
