“UFC Fight Night 96: Lineker vs. Dodson” goes down Saturday inside Moda Center in Portland, Oregon. UFC Fight Pass streams the first four preliminary bouts live starting at 7:15PM ET/4:15PM PT.

Fox Sports 2 will broadcast the remaining four prelims at 9PM ET/6PM PT. It’s going to be a late one for you eastcoasters interested in the main card, as the featured fights begin at 11PM ET/8PM PT.

Courtesy of a couple of heavy (or “unprofessional” as Will Brooks put it), a pair of catchweight contests headline tonight’s show. For the fifth time in his UFC career, John Lineker missed weight, changing his bantamweight bout with John Dodson to a 136.5 catchweight fight.

While Lineker only missed weight by a half-pound, Alex Oliveira went big and decided to come in 5.5 pounds overweight for his lightweight scrap with Brooks. They will now meet in a 161.5 catchweight in the co-main event.

Dodson and Brooks will each leave Portland 20 percent richer thanks to their opponents coming in heavy.
