Don’t let Dana White’s matchmaking machinations fool you, there’s still plenty at stake during Saturday’s event.

Yes, the next light heavyweight title fight appears to be unfolding as current champion Jan Blachowicz is set to meet middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in a superfight being negotiated. This news leaves Thiago Santos and Glover Teixeira out in the cold as it emerged once their clash in the main event at UFC Vegas 13 was certain to determine the No.1 contender at 205 pounds.

Now the best the two veterans can hope for is to hold onto their places, with Teixeira on an impressive four-game winning streak and Santos coming back from injury for the first time since July of last year when it came to a Judges scoreboard to defeat Jon. Jones. Maybe a dominant performance or a highlight finish will push one of them back to pole position, especially if the Blachowicz-Adesanya match doesn’t come to fruition for some reason, but at the very least we should be in an entertaining brawl between the Brazilian. stars.

Speaking of retaining a spot, former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski makes his 33rd appearance in the Octagon when he meets Tanner Boser at the main co-event of the night. Boser would have been 13 when Arlovski won a UFC title, and now he can add the veteran’s name to his roster as he seeks to climb into the top 10. A few months away from his 42nd birthday, Arlovski must prove a once again that the next generation of heavyweights will not use it as a stepping stone.

In another main card action, bantamweight Raoni Barcelos looks to go 5-0 in the UFC when he takes on Khalid Taha, Ian Heinisch and Brendan Allen meet in a middleweight fight that guarantees action, and Claudia Gadelha, a strawweight title contender, turns to give Yan Xiaonan her first UFC loss.
