VANCOUVER — While the Canucks are at training camp in Victoria, their home rink is being turned into a battleground.

UFC action returns to Vancouver for the first time in over three years this weekend, starting at 5 p.m. Saturday at Rogers Arena.

Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone clashes with fellow lightweight Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje in the main event at UFC Fight Night.

Cerrone will be looking to rebound from a recent second-round TKO loss to Tony Ferguson as a +185 underdog at UFC 238, ending a three-fight win streak. It was his first loss in three outings since returning to the UFC lightweight division going into Saturday night’s match at Rogers Arena.
