|5||HDClosed CaptioningVideoTony Ferguson vs. Abel Trujillo||The winner of season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter, Tony Ferguson's early UFC career was plagued by injuries, but since returning to active duty in late 2013, he has been unstoppable, defeating Mike Rio, Katsunori Kikuno, and Danny Castillo. Now all that stands between him and a move from prospect to contender is Abel Trujillo.||20:15||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|6||HDClosed CaptioningVideoUrijah Faber vs. Francisco Rivera||Winner of five of his last six bouts, most recently a third-round submission of Alex Caceres in July, Sacramento's Urijah Faber is a pioneer of the lighter weight classes and one of the most dangerous contenders in the sport today. But to get another shot at the 135-pound title, he has to turn back the challenge of fellow Californian Francisco Rivera. On a current hot streak has seen him go unbeaten in six of his last seven matches, a string that includes knockouts of George Roop and Edwin Figueroa, Rivera is one of the hardest punchers Faber has ever faced, and he is confident that if he lands on 'The California Kid,' it will be lights out.||17:25||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|7||HDClosed CaptioningVideoEddie Gordon vs. Josh Samman||Straight from the mixed martial arts hotbed of Long Island, New York, Eddie Gordon made a huge splash in his Octagon debut in July, winning the middleweight division of The Ultimate Fighter 19 with a devastating 71-second knockout of Dhiego Lima. Now he starts part two of his UFC journey against TUF 17's Josh Samman. A semifinalist during his stint on the reality show, Samman won his first UFC bout with a TKO of Kevin Casey before injury sidelined him. Tonight, he's back in action and looking forward to the opportunity to add another win to his record.||19:19||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|8||HDClosed CaptioningVideoCorey Anderson vs. Justin Jones||Undefeated in four amateur bouts, Justin Jones made the move to the pro ranks in 2014 and he didn't skip a beat, winning all three of his pro matches thus far. Even more telling is that he finished all of those bouts by KO or submission, making him an easy choice to join the UFC's light heavyweight roster. And while he's in tough with Corey Anderson tonight, he has the talent to get the respect of any opponent. Winner of TUF 19's light heavyweight division, Anderson knows all about taking matters into his own hands, as he earned a UFC contract in July with a 61 second knockout of Matt Van Buren. Now he begins the next chapter of his Octagon career.||24:25||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|9||HDClosed CaptioningVideoRaquel Pennington vs. Ashlee Evans-Smith||After a lengthy amateur career that saw her defeat the likes of Jessamyn Duke, Ashlee Evans-Smith turned pro in 2013 and quickly rang up a perfect 3-0 record. Not surprisingly, a call to the Octagon followed for the talented striker and wrestler, and tonight, Evans-Smith makes her UFC debut against The Ultimate Fighter 18 veteran Raquel Pennington. A hardnosed striker who owns a UFC win over Roxanne Modafferi, Pennington first made her presence known during season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter, and while she lost a close split decision to Jessica Andrade in March, a win over Evans-Smith will put 'Rocky' back on track at 135 pounds.||13:58||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|10||HDClosed CaptioningVideoSergio Pettis vs. Matt Hobar||With a nickname like 'The Crowbar,' it's clear that Matt Hobar brings a high level of grit and determination to the Octagon, and that was never more evident than in his August bout against Aaron Phillips, as he dominated the action from start to finish en route to his first UFC win. In the opposite corner tonight is Sergio 'The Phenom' Pettis, perhaps the most highly-touted prospects to hit the division in years, and the Milwaukee native has delivered on the hype with wins over Will Campuzano and Yaotzin Meza and a Fight of the Night against Alex Caceres. Now he'll look to dismantle Hobar in his return to Las Vegas.||26:15||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|11||HDClosed CaptioningVideoAlex White vs. Clay Collard||With his all-action style and warrior's attitude, Clay Collard may have lost his UFC debut to Max Holloway in August, but the Utah striker made more than a few fans for his short notice effort, and tonight, with a full training camp behind him, he wants to add a win to his record against Alex White. One of the featherweight division's brightest prospects, White picked up a Performance of the Night bonus in his Octagon debut against Estevan Payan in April, and he wouldn't mind another result like that against the hard-charging Collard.||26:15||$2.99||View in iTunes|
