It’s finally happened — the UFC will hold two events on the same day at the same time. Well, maybe not at the same time, but it will still be impressive to see how mixed martial arts premier promotion will be able to pull off Saturday’s events.
UFC Fight Night: Munoz vs Mousasi in Berlin, Germany, will be the first event, (which will be during the day in the States), with the prelims starting at 9:30 AM PT/12:30 ET.

Viewers will be able watch both the prelims and main card via UFC Fight Pass — which costs $9.99 a month.
In the main event UFC middleweights Mark Munoz and Gegard Mousasi will battle for position in the division, and the co-main event features fellow middleweights Francis Carmont and C.B. Dollaway.
Rounding out the main card will be yet another middleweight matchup between TUF 17 alum Luke Barnatt and Sean Strickland (TVMix caught up with Strickland here) and European featherweight’s Tom Ninimaki and Niklas Backstrom will start it off.

TUF Brazil 3 Finale: Miocic vs Maldonaldo in Sao Paulo, Brazil, will start off on UFC Fight Pass at 3:30 PM PT/6:30 PM ET, then move to Fox Sports 1. Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos was slated to face Stipe Miocic, but a hand injury forced the Brazilian off the card and in came fellow countrymen Fabio Maldonado to replace him.
This card will feature contestants from Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva coached teams, with Demian Maia, Rony Jason, Robbie Peralta, Rodrigo Damm and Paulo Thiago being the only known veterans from the event.
If all that wasn’t confusing enough, longtime UFC commentators Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan, will be calling UFC Fight Night from Berlin, Germany, while Brian Stann and Jon Anik, will do the the play by play from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
