The women's strawweight division could be set for a shake-up this weekend as two highly ranked contenders do battle in an intriguing main event.

Jiu-jitsu maestro Mackenzie Dern will be looking to solidify her status in the top five and begin making a case for the next crack at UFC gold when she takes on the number six ranked Xiaonan Yan.

And there's an entertaining battle between two welterweight contenders who always come to fight as Randy Brown faces Francisco Trinaldo in the co-main event from the UFC APEX.

There's something unusual afoot at the UFC's competitive HQ this weekend with the event being closed off entirely to both the media and the general public for reasons yet to be made clear.

In her pre-fight press conference this week, Dern suggested she'd heard Facebook supremo Mark Zuckerberg had something to do with it - although that was later denied by UFC boss Dana White.
