UFC ESPN+ 60

Welcome to F4WOnline.com's live coverage of UFC On ESPN+ 60: Makhachev vs. Green, emanating from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Octagon remains inside its home base of the UFC APEX in Las Vegas for another week of fights this time with a main event featuring a fighter looking to get himself a title shot against a late-notice veteran in his well-deserved first UFC main event.

Fourth-ranked lightweight Islam Makhachev puts his nine-fight win streak on the line against veteran Bobby Green, stepping in on ten days' notice, in what will be a 160-pound catchweight main event. Makhachev was slated to fight Beneil Dariush in this bout, but an ankle injury forced Dariush out, and Green, who just fought at UFC 271 on February 12, stepped in for his much anticipated first headline fight. Makhachev could be next in line for a title shot with a win here.

Also on the main card is a middleweight bout pitting Misha Cirkunov against Wellington Turman, a women's flyweight bout between Ji Yeon Kim and Priscila Cachoeira, a lightweight bout between ranked contender Arman Tsarukyan and Joel Alvarez, and a middleweight bout as the debuting Armen Petrosyan battles Gregory Rodrigues.

Follow along with our live coverage of the event beginning at 4 p.m. Eastern time with preliminary action all the way through the main card.
