If you’re heading to St. Louis the UFC’s debut in “The Gateway to the West,” there’s a fight-week event you can attend for free.
UFC Fight Night 124 takes place Sunday at Scottrade Center in St. Louis and is the promotion’s first trip to the city. The card airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
In the main event, Jeremy Stephens (26-14 MMA, 13-13 UFC) takes on exciting young up-and-comer Dooho Choi (14-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) in a featherweight bout. In the co-feature, Vitor Belfort (26-13 MMA, 15-10 UFC) fights Uriah Hall (13-8 MMA, 6-6 UFC) at middleweight in what could be Belfort’s retirement bout. In addition, Jessica-Rose Clark (8-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) takes on Paige VanZant (7-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) in a women’s flyweight bout.
Prior to the event, fans can attend open workouts with six of the fighters from the main card.
On Friday at Scottrade Center, the fighters will work out and meet the media in 20-minute increments starting at 1 p.m. CT local time. Doors open to the public at 12:30 p.m. and will be followed by workouts by Hall, Choi, Clark, Belfort, VanZant and Stephens.
Of note, there are no ceremonial weigh-ins for fans on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 124 ahead of Sunday’s card.
