Grab your popcorn. UFC Fight Night Sacramento is here with a dozen bouts at Golden 1 Center on Saturday.

Team Alpha Male takes centerstage with six fighters competing in the event. They're led by their fearless leader Urijah Faber, who is making his comeback fight against Ricky Simon. 

"The California Kid" is the underdog in the co-main event, but will have the crowd on his side. 

The main event belongs to Folsom's Aspen Ladd. Coming in with an undefeated 8-0-0 record, Ladd will face her toughest opponent yet in Germaine de Randamie. Ladd did appear to have a rough time cutting weight, though, as she was visibly in pain to make the 135-pound mark as a bantamweight. 

Follow along with results and highlights from the preliminary fights to the main card.
