UFC Vegas 84 preview show: Reaction to Manel Kape big weight miss, plus Anakalev vs. Walker stakes

The UFC is back for the first time in 2024 as they return to the APEX for UFC Vegas 84, and a high-stakes main event in the light heavyweight division takes place between Magomed Ankalaev and Johnny Walker as they compete for the second time.

Could a title shot against Alex Pereira be next for the winner of the scheduled five-round matchup?

MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, Jed Meshew, and Eric Jackman preview Saturday’s card, the Anakalev vs. Walker headliner, and discuss what is at stake for both guys. Additionally, they’ll talk the co-main event between Manel Kape and Matheus Nicolau, Kape missing weight by 3.5 pound — which has now led to the bout being cancelled — the rest of the main card as a whole, Jim Miller’s road to UFC 300, the low-key banger of UFC Vegas 84, and much more.
