Saturday night’s fights will answer a lot of questions.

Can Israel Adesanya make the first of what could possibly be numerous defences of the middleweight championship he made undisputed when he knocked out Robert Whittaker last year, or does Yoel Romero deserve the reputation placed upon him by the likes of Darren Till as the ‘scariest’ fighter on the UFC roster?

Is Joanna Jedrzejczyk a spent force at strawweight, or does the former champion have what it takes to get past the seemingly impervious Zhang Weili? Will Li Jingliang claim his eighth win in his last nine fights? And what can we expect from Sean O’Malley after two years out of the cage?

We have already broken down our feelings on the main event and the co-main event, but how and when can you actually watch the scraps?
