The UFC is back in Las Vegas this week with a women’s strawweight showdown at the top of the bill.

UFC Fight Night 194 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card streams on ESPN+.

(Click here to open a PDF of the staff picks grid in a separate window.)

In the main event, Mackenzie Dern (11-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) takes on Marina Rodriguez (14-1-2 MMA, 4-1-2 UFC) in a key fight at 115 pounds. Dern is a -180 favorite at Tipico; the comeback on Rodriguez is +140. Dern has a fairly sizable edge in the picks from our 13 editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers, as well, at 10-3.

In the co-feature, Randy Brown (13-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) is a -240 favorite in his welterweight fight against Jared Gooden (18-6 MMA, 1-2 UFC). He’s also one of two unanimous picks on the main card at 13-0.

Also on the main card, former flyweight title challenger Tim Elliott (17-11-1 MMA, 6-9 UFC) meets Matheus Nicolau (16-2-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC). Nicolau is a -210 favorite and a near unanimous choice. Only one of our pickers is taking Elliott in an upset.

Our most contentious fight on the main card is at women’s flyweight between Mariya Agapova (9-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Sabina Mazo (9-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC). Mazo is a -180 favorite, but she only has an 8-5 lead in the picks.

And to open the main card, Felipe Colares (10-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) takes on Chris Gutierrez (16-3-2 MMA, 4-1-1 UFC) at bantamweight. Gutierrez is a -250 favorite and our second unanimous pick.

In the MMA Junkie reader consensus picks, Dern (68 percent), Brown (77 percent), Nicolau (59 percent), Mazo (62 percent) and Gutierrez (86 percent) are the choices.
