This Friday, the Times Union Center will host UFC Fight Night. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. with fights starting as early as 5:30 p.m. on UFC Fight Pass.

Levack and I will be broadcasting live this Friday 2 p.m.-7 p.m. from inside the Times Union Center getting you ready for the biggest fights of the night. This afternoon we were joined by a New York state native, who will be competing on this Friday night's card, Gian Vilante. Vilante was a former Hofstra football player before shifting his focus to mixed martial arts. The light heavyweight bout will pit the 14-7 Vilante against the 8-0 Saparbek Safarov.Vilante discussed his upcoming bout, his prediction and how tough it is for him to keep weight off when he is not training for a bout. Remember to be listening to Levack and I this week for a chance to win a pair of tickets to UFC Fight Night at the Times Union Center.
