Watch UFC 173 video preview for 'Barao vs. Dillashaw' on May 24 in Las Vegas


Light 'em up! Get a closer look at the upcoming UFC 173: "Barao vs. Dillashaw" event in this latest video preview.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is less than three weeks away from its annual Memorial Day Weekend pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza, which is set to go down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 24, 2014.

UFC 173: "Barao vs. Dillashaw" will feature a re-worked main event that pits reigning bantamweight champion Renan Barao opposite 135-pound upstart TJ Dillashaw. In the co-main event, Daniel Cormier will try to inch his way closer to a light heavyweight title shot by turning away the resurgent Dan Henderson, who like "DC," wants to get his crack at the division crown.

That's not all.

Elsewhere on the card, Robbie Lawler will bang it out with Jake Ellenberger for the right to stay alive in the 170-pound title chase, while Francisco Rivera and Takeya Mizugaki hook 'em up in bantamweight action. "Prelim" fights will air on FOX Sports 1 and Fight Pass.
