The UFC makes its return to Mexico City, Mexico this evening for an epic night with some top notch talent and we have UFC Fight Night 98 results for you all night long.

The event takes place at the Mexico City Arena and will kick off on UFC Fight Pass, followed by the prelims on FOX Sports 1 and main card also on FOX Sports 1 at 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET.

Former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will step back inside the Octagon for the first time since losing his title to Eddie Alvarez in July. He will square off against Tony Ferguson who is riding an eight-fight winning streak and is probably taking the longest road to title contention in the UFC.

Veteran Diego Sanchez welcomes Marcin Held to the Octagon in the evening co-main event. Sanchez is 3-4 in his last seven outings and lost via TKO to Joe Lauzon in his last fight at UFC 200. Held will make his UFC debut after an impressive career under the Bellator banner.
