Rodriguez takes on former champion and current No. 1 contender Max Holloway in the main event today in Las Vegas. He looked in shape, weighing in at a trim 145.5 pounds while Holloway came in at 146.

Can “El Pantera” return to the cage victorious?

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (4PM ET/1PM PT)

SONG YADONG (17-5-1, 1NC) VS. JULIO ARCE (17-4-0)

UFC Vegas 42

Andrews: Arce is a tough guy who can wear an opponent out, but if Yarding can keep it standing, he should get the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Song Yadong via UD

MIGUEL BAEZA (10-1-0) VS. CHAOS WILLIAMS (12-2-0)

UFC Vegas 42

Andrews: Baeza is going to rebound from his last fight with a nifty TKO here if he can avoid the big shot from Chaos.

Andrews Prediction: Miguel Baeza via TKO

FELICIA SPENCER (8-3-0) VS. LEAH LETSON (5-1-0)

UFC Vegas 42

Andrews: Spencer has struggled as of late, but her experience should prevail here.

Andrews Prediction: Felicia Spencer via UD

BEN ROTHWELL (39-13-0) VS. MARCOS ROGERIO DE LIMA (18-7-0)

Andrews: Once De Lima figures out the distance, he will knock out Rothwell.

Andrews Prediction: Marcos Rogerio De Lima via TKO

MAIN EVENT

#1 MAX HOLLOWAY (22-6-0) VS. #3 YAIR RODRIGUEZ (13-2-0, 1NC)

Andrews: Despite not competing for over two years, I expect Rodriguez to put on a good show and push Holloway. But in the end, Holloway should get the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Max Holloway via UD

Enjoy the fights!
