  • Check out all of the UFC Fight Night 149 betting odds for the prelims and main card.
  • Heavyweight Alistair Overeem is a heavy -240 favorite vs. Aleksei Oleinik in the main event.

There will be fights during the day this weekend for all of us North and South Americans out there, as the UFC will make its next international trip to Yubileyny Sports Palace in Saint Petersburg, Russia on Saturday.

The six-fight prelim card will be aired on ESPN2 and will get started at 10 a.m. ET. The event’s six-fight main card is available on ESPN+ and will begin at 1 p.m. ET.

UFC Fight Night 149 is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Alistair Overeem and Aleksei Oleinik, who are currently the division’s respective seventh- and ninth-ranked contenders. Oleinik is taking the fight on fewer than three weeks notice, as Overeem was initially slated to fight sixth-ranked contender Alexander Volkov, who dropped out of the fight on April 3 due to an undisclosed reason.

Overeem was last seen securing a victory over unranked Sergey Pavlovich in November via TKO (punches) in the very first round.

The win snapped a two-fight losing streak to elite contenders Curtis Blaydes and Francis Ngannou.

Meanwhile, Oleinik has won four of his last five fights since 2017, with the only loss coming to Blaydes back in November 2017. Oleinik secured an impressive first-round submission over Mark Hunt during his last trip to the Octagon this past September.
