The Ultimate Fighting Championship is returning to Singapore this week for its first event there in more than three years. UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia takes place in the early morning for North Americans on Saturday following Friday’s official weigh-in.

The main event features two women trying to get back into the mix for title contention in the bantamweight division.

Holly Holm is on a three-fight skid, but that includes a losing battle for the featherweight belt, and she believes that she could again challenge for a championship with a solid win in Singapore. Bethe Correia is 1-2-1 in her last four bouts, but like Holm, she believes a victory could once again make her an instant contender .

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski could be trying to stave off an Octagon ouster when he meets Marcin Tybura. Arlovski is in the midst of a four-fight skid and is in desperate need of a win.

While most of the fighters had no issues on the scale, preliminary card fighter Carls John De Tomas was well over the 126-pound limit for his flyweight contest with Naoki Inoue. De Tomas weighed 131 pounds. He was fined 30-percent of his fight purse, which goes to his opponent, according to MMAJunkie. The fight will still take place.
