Noche UFC: How to watch Grasso vs. Shevchenko 2, start time, Las Vegas lineup, odds, more

The UFC is back in Las Vegas on Saturday for a specially themed event: Noche UFC.

Here’s how to watch Noche UFC with the women’s flyweight title on the line.

Noche UFC has a main card that begins at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+. The prelims stream on ESPN+, as well, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Main event: Alexa Grasso

Alexa Grasso (16-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) will put her women’s flyweight title on the line for the first time. She beat long-reigning champion Valentina Shevchenko in an upset to win the belt with a fourth-round submission in March at UFC 285. She was nearly a 6-1 underdog in the fight. The 30-year-old from Mexico hasn’t lost in nearly four years.

Valentina Shevchenko (23-4 MMA, 12-3 UFC) enjoyed years of dominance over the women’s flyweight division until she was tapped out by Grasso. Since 2010, Shevchenko’s only MMA loss had been to dominant former two-division GOAT Amanda Nunes, and both were at bantamweight. But after she dropped a split decision to Nunes six years ago, she won nine straight until Grasso upset her. She’s favored in the rematch, despite being the challenger – but the odds are much closer the second time around.

Co-main event: Jack Della Maddalena vs. Kevin Holland

Jack Della Maddalena

Jack Della Maddalena (15-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC) lost his first two pro fights in 2016 and hasn’t lost since. But Saturday, he has his arguably his toughest test yet when he takes on Kevin Holland (25-9 MMA, 12-6 UFC) at middleweight. Maddalena has won 15 straight, but most recently had to work a little bit to take a split call from Bassil Hafez in July after four straight first-round finishes to open his UFC tenure.

Holland has back-to-back stoppage wins after a pair of setbacks to Khamzat Chimaev and Stephen Thompson. In April, he knocked out Santiago Ponzinibbio in the third round at UFC 287, and in late July, he submitted Michael Chiesa in the first round to stay on track.

UFC debut: Charlie Campbell

Charlie Campbell (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) was knocked out in the first round on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2022, but got back on track with a first-round knockout of Josh Streacker for CFFC in June. That was enough to get him another UFC shot when he takes on Alex Reyes (13-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) on the prelims.

UFC debut: Josefine Knutsson

Josefine Knutsson (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who trains with Alexander Gustafsson, Khamzat Chimaev and other standouts in Sweden, makes her UFC debut against fellow debutante Marnic Mann (6-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) to open the card in a strawweight bout. Knutsson has five of her six pro wins by decision, including a Dana White’s Contender Series victory in August. Mann, from Montana, has her lone loss to Bruna Brasil on DWCS in 2022, but she rebounded with an LFA win in April and now has a shot in the UFC.
