Just one month removed from hosting two live events on the same day for the first time in company history, the UFC returns with another jammed-packed schedule this weekend.

UFC Fight Night: Marquardt vs. Te Huna kicks off the festivities inside Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. Because of the time zone differences, the show starts bright and early in America (or late Friday night on the west coast) at 2:30AM ET/11:30PM PT.

UFC Fight Pass streams the entire card exclusively. Nate Marquardt returns to the middleweight division to battle James Te Huna in the main attraction.

On Saturday evening, UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs. Stephens goes down in AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

Fox Sports 1 takes care of the entire card, with the prelims beginning at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

A pivotal featherweight shootout between Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens (pictured) serves as the main event.
