LAS VEGAS – The main-card fighters from Saturday’s UFC 219 event faced off today in Las Vegas, and MMAjunkie has the highlights.

Headlining the card are UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg(18-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and former women’s titleholder champion Holly Holm (11-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC). Top lightweight contenders Edson Barboza (19-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) meet in the co-feature.

UFC 219 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with a pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Competitors from the two top fights were respectful on stage today, leaving the most palpable tension to lightweights Marc Diakiese(12-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Dan Hooker(14-7 MMA, 4-3 UFC), who were recently promoted to the main card.

Rounding out the event were strawweights Cynthia Calvillo (6-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Carla Esparza (12-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC), as well as welterweights Carlos Condit (30-10 MMA, 7-6 UFC) and Neil Magny (19-6 MMA, 12-5 UFC).
