UFC Fight Night 151 happens May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York, and also the card lately had a number of bouts added to it. My initial thoughts on the new matchups are under.
Megan Anderson vs. Felicia Spencer, UFC Fight Night 151
A fascinating women’s featherweight bout between former Invicta champions Megan Anderson and Felicia Spencer is set to take place at UFC Fight Night 151, and the winner might well be set up for a shot in Amanda Nunes’s 145lbs belt after she gets through her UFC 239 matchup against Holly Holm.
Anderson (9-3) chose to Holm within her Octagon debut last year at UFC 225 but rebounded nicely with a first-round TKO win over Cat Zingano at UFC 232. Together with seven stoppage wins, Anderson is one of the most dangerous female featherweights on the market. Spencer (6-0) won the Invicta title in her final bout, a submission win over Pam Sorensen. She has finished four of her fights because making her MMA debut in 2015, and the Montreal native appears to be a great signing by the UFC as one of the few true female featherweights from the game. Although Spencer shouldn’t be counted out of this struggle, given Anderson’s previous UFC experience ad popularity, I’d expect her to be a sizeable favorite here.
Neil Magny vs. Vicente Luque, UFC Fight Night 151
Welterweight contenders Neil Magny and Vicente Luque are set to meet, according to a report from Farah Hannoun. Magny (21-7) is 14-6 in the UFC and is coming from a brutal KO loss to Santiago Ponziibbio past November. Luque (15-6-1) is 8-2 at the UFC with all his wins coming from stoppage, and he is now riding a four-fight win series that includes a knockout win over Bryan Barberena in what is arguably so much the 2019″Fight of the Year » at MMA. Magny has been an underrated welterweight, and it has proven to surprise from time to time, but awarded Luque’s win series and his absurd finishing power, you need to favor him very heavily to get the business done here.
Antonio Carlos Junior vs. Ian Heinisch, UFC Fight Night 151
Middleweights Antonio Carlos Junior and Ian Heinisch are set to lock horns after Heinisch’s struggle against Tom Breese in UFC London fell through at the last minute because of some Breese medical issue. He’ll rather get the chance to fight a higher-ranked competition in the kind of Junior, the former TUF winner.
Junior (10-2, 1 NC) is 7-2, 1 NC at the UFC and is currently riding a five-fight win streak that includes a submission win over Tim Boetsch in his last outing, which will be important to not took place last April. Heinisch (12-1) is one a four-fight win streak and defeated Cezar Ferreira by decision within his UFC debut. This is going to be a competitive struggle, but awarded Junior’s Octagon experience and vaunted submission match, you have to slightly prefer him to win this bout.
Davi Ramos vs. Austin Hubbard, UFC Fight Night 151
A lightweight bout between Davi Ramos and Austin Hubbard is set for this particular occasion. Ramos (9-2) is 3-1 in the UFC and has won his last few fights via rear-naked choke. Hubbard (10-2) was the LFA lightweight champ and is riding a three-fight win streak into this battle. Hubbard is a fascinating prospect but Ramos has shown he can finish opponents within the Octagon, and he should be a solid favorite here.
Danny Roberts vs. Michel Pereira, UFC Fight Night 151
Welterweights Danny Roberts and Michel Pereira are set to fight. Roberts (16-4) is currently 5-3 at the UFC and he’s coming off of a contentious entry loss to Claudio Silva. Pereira (21-9, 2 NC) is making his UFC debut following a KO win in Road FC. With his UFC expertise, expect Roberts to be the favored.
Julio Arce vs. Julian Erosa, UFC Fight Night 151
And finally, a featherweight bout between Julio Arce and Julian Erosa is set, according to a report from Nolan King of FloCombat. Arce (15-3) is 2-1 in the UFC and lately had a seven-fight win streak snapped with a split decision loss to Sheymon Moraes his out time. Erosa (22-7) is 0-3 in the UFC over two stints and is now riding a two-fight losing skid. This looks like a fantastic bounce-back fight for Arce, that I expect to be a sizeable favorite.
