How to watch UFC Fight Night Sacramento: Live stream, start time, TV info

A pair of hometown heroes headline UFC Fight Night Sacramento on Saturday at Golden 1 Center. 

Urijah Faber (34-10-0) will fight for the first time since Dec. 17, 2016, coming out of retirement to fight Ricky Simon (15-1-0) about 15 miles from Faber's collegiate alma mater of University of California, Davis. Faber isn't lacking motivation coming out of retirement, and can give the crowd in Sacramento something to cheer about.

So, too, can Folsom native Aspen Ladd (8-0-0). She is undefeated in her pro career, but will face a more difficult opponent in Germaine de Randaime than at any point so far in her career. 

Here's the full card, which gets underway at 5 p.m. PT:

Undercard: Marvin Vettori (12-4-1) vs. Cezar Ferreira (13-7-0) [men's middleweight]
Undercard: Karl Roberson (7-2-0) vs. Wellington Turman (15-2-0) [men's middleweight]
Undercard: Josh Emmett (14-2-0) vs. Mirsad Bektić (13-1-0) [men's featherweight]
Co-main: Urijah Faber (34-10-0) vs. Ricky Simon (15-1-0) [men's bantamweight]
Main event: Germaine de Randamie (8-3-0) vs. Aspen Ladd (8-0-0) [women's bantamweight]

Here are the preliminary bouts, which begin at 2 p.m. PT:

Cal grad Ryan Murphy pushes car as part of Olympic swimming training

Ryan Murphy won three gold medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics, setting a world record in the process. After that, he returned to Cal only to add to a historical career.

As the timeline approaches three weeks until what would have been the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Murphy understood he, along with other athletes, had to do their part in order to maintain safety during the coronavirus pandemic. 

“It was really challenging to have that maturity to realize that it’s not all about sports and we’ve got to protect our communities,” Murphy told Mike Tirico on NBC Sports’ Lunch Talk Live.

That doesn’t mean he’s not training, of course.

Murphy credited doing pull-ups on trees, running up hills and even pushing cars in order to stay in shape during a time like this as he preps for 2021. 

No, seriously:

The 2017 Cal grad finished his collegiate career becoming the fourth man in NCAA history to sweep both distances of one stroke all four years (the 100- and 200-yard backstroke).

He remains in Berkeley where he continues to train.
