The UFC returns to ESPN prime time on Saturday, and once again matchmakers have gifted the fans with an all-star lineup of finishers. According to prop odds, not a single fight on the main card is expected to go the distance, meaning there should be plenty of wild highlights generated by the event.

The main event is a tricky one, contrasting old talent and new, Brazil versus Sweden. The winner will end up in the middleweight title picture but will likely have to wait while interim champion Israel Adesanya gets his crack at incumbent champion Robert Whittaker. Once those belts are unified, this weekend's main event winner will have a case for a title shot, and winning with a spectacular finish would certainly help put an exclamation point on it.

Let's take a closer look at the main event and see where there is some betting value.


Middleweight matchup: No. 4 Jacare Souza (-185) vs. No. 10 Jack Hermansson (+160)
