For the first time since September 2018, UFC returns to St. Petersburg, Russia. And fans in the Russian city are in for a treat, getting to see countryman Alexey Oleinik take on Alistair Overeem in the heavyweight bout.

UFC Fight Night is set to kick off its main card around 1 p.m. ET and can be streamed on ESPN+. Additional streams can be found on Reddit via the MMA Streams subreddit and direct streams can be​ found at this link.

The fighters competing at UFC Fight Night in Saint Petersburg, Russia hit the scale on Friday ahead of the card taking place on Saturday with the main event featuring former title contender Alistair Overeem against local favorite Aleksei Oleinik.

Considering this is a heavyweight main event there wasn’t that much concern about either fighter struggling to make weight but now the fight is official after both fighters stepped on the scale.

Overeem came in at 245 pounds while Oleinick was at 237 pounds ahead of their meeting on Saturday.

In the co-main event, Islam Makhachev will attempt to build on his four-fight win streak when he takes on UFC newcomer Arman Tsarukyan. Both lightweights came in at 155 pounds ahead of their co-main event matchup this weekend.

If you were to look up the definition of the word “polarizing” you’d find a definition of the word “polarizing” right next to a picture of Overeem licking his lips over an image of Seabiscuit and Barbaro. Overeem started out as the Hot Young Prospect of LHW. Then he became the Has All the Tools but Can’t Put it Together gatekeeper.

A new diet, and some kickboxing experience later and Overeem was suddenly the Most Dangerous Man on the Planet. Now he’s just Exciting Heavyweight Guy. It’s crazy to think we’ve reached a point where Overeem is neither elite, nor bad, but just another warm body, but that’s kind of what I’m feeling right now.

Aĺistair Overeem has been doing this whole ‘fighting’ thing for a minute now, and while there are many fighters that you could see having careers late into their pugilistic dotage, Im not sure that I ever would have seen The Reem as one of them? I would have seen him off chasing pro-wrestling type paydays in whatever the equivalent of Rizin was. But here he is, doggedly ploughing away in a quest for that elusive UFC title.

  3. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!|

  4. Hiya! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!

  5. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  6. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast because I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this issue here on your website.
