UFC on FOX 23: Shevchenko vs. Pena takes place this Saturday, Jan. 28 from Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo. In the main event muay thai champion Valentina Shevchenko faces TUF 18 winner Julianna Pena, with the winner likely guaranteed a shot at Amanda Nunes’s bantamweight title later this year.

In the welterweight co-headliner Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone battles Jorge Masvidal, and a heavyweight showdown between former champ Andrei Arlovski and Francis Ngannou is also on the bill. UFC’s Road to the Octagon takes us inside the MMA training camps of each fighter as they prepare for January 28.
