The winner will aim for a light heavyweight title shot in his next bout.
UFC Fight Night returns this Saturday with the main card streaming live from Prague in the Czech Republic. You can watch this UFC Fight Night main event matchup of Blachowicz vs Santos exclusively on ESPN+.
The main card starts at 2 p.m. Eastern time on Feb. 23, live from the O2 Arena. If you have access to ESPN2, through a live streaming service or otherwise, you can watch the prelims starting at 11 a.m. Eastern.
Jan Blachowicz (23-7) will face off against Thiago Santos (20-6) in the Fight Night main event. Thiago Santos was a middleweight fighter most of his career, but has been undefeated since moving up to light heavyweight. Not to be outdone, Jan Blachowicz has won his last four consecutive fights, with two submissions. He’s risen to be the fourth-ranked contender for the light heavyweight title. With current champ Jon Jones set to fight third ranked Anthony Smith in March, a title fight could be in the future for the winner of this February main event.

- Stefan Struve (28-11) vs Marcos Rogerio de Lima (16-6-1)
