UFC 266 is headlined by two title fights as featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski faces Brian Ortega and flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko looks to add Lauren Murphy to her lengthy highlight reel. All fighters on the card made weight for the event, including Dan Hooker and Nasrat Haqparast, who both arrived in Las Vegas on Thursday.

Topping the card is the second title defense for Volkanovski (22-1). The Australian is undefeated inside the Octagon and hasn't lost a fight since 2013. "The Great" will go up against Ortega (15-1, 1 NC), who returned to fighting after a two-year layoff by defeating Chan Sung Jung via a dominant decision. The champion weighed 144.5 pounds, while "T-City" stepped on the scale at 144 pounds.

Shevchenko (21-3) is the most dominant women's flyweight champion ever, and she is currently riding a seven-fight win streak. "Bullet" looked great on the scales weighing 124 pounds. Looking to cause a huge upset is the 15-4 Murphy, who has quietly put together five straight wins over the likes of Joanne Calderwood, Liliya Shakirova and Roxanne Modafferi.

UFC 266's main card will air on ESPN+ pay-per-view on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. Preliminary action starts at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT on ESPN+ and UFC Fight Pass, while the action moves to ESPN+ and ESPNews at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
