UFC Fight Night 151 happens May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York, and the card recently had a number of spells added to it. My initial thoughts on the new matchups are under.
Megan Anderson vs. Felicia Spencer, UFC Fight Night 151
An intriguing women’s featherweight bout between former Invicta champions Megan Anderson and Felicia Spencer is set to happen at UFC Fight Night 151, and the winner could very well be set up to get a shot at Amanda Nunes’s 145lbs belt after she gets through her UFC 239 matchup against Holly Holm.
Anderson (9-3) lost a decision to Holm in her Octagon debut this past year at UFC 225 but rebounded nicely with a first-round TKO win over Cat Zingano in UFC 232. With seven stoppage wins, Anderson is among the most dangerous female featherweights out there. Spencer (6-0) won the Invicta name in her last bout, a submission win over Pam Sorensen. She’s finished four of her struggles since making her MMA introduction in 2015, and the Montreal native appears to be a fantastic signing by the UFC as among the few authentic female featherweights from the sport. Although Spencer should not be counted from the fight, given Anderson’s past UFC experience ad popularity, I’d expect her to become quite a sizeable favorite here.
Neil Magny vs. Vicente Luque, UFC Fight Night 151
Welterweight contenders Neil Magny and Vicente Luque are place to meet, according to a report from Farah Hannoun. Magny (21-7) is 14-6 at the UFC and is coming from a brutal KO loss to Santiago Ponziibbio past November. Luque (15-6-1) is 8-2 in the UFC with all his wins coming by stoppage, and he is now riding a four-fight win series that includes a knockout win over Bryan Barberena in what is arguably so far the 2019″Fight of the Year” at MMA. Magny has been an underrated welterweight and has known to surprise from time to time, but given Luque’s win streak and his absurd completing power, you need to prefer him very heavily to get the job done .
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 at UFC London fell through at the last minute because of a Breese medical issue. He’ll instead get the opportunity to battle a higher-ranked opponent in the kind of Junior, the former TUF winner.
Junior (10-2, 1 NC) is 7-2, 1 NC in the UFC and is now riding a five-fight win series that includes a submission win over Tim Boetsch in his last outing, which is important to not occurred last April. Heinisch (12-1) is one a four-fight win series and defeated Cezar Ferreira by decision within his UFC debut. This is going to be a competitive fight, but given Junior’s Octagon encounter and vaunted submission match, you need 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 place for this particular occasion. Ramos (9-2) is 3-1 in the UFC and has won his last three battles via rear-naked choke. Hubbard (10-2) has been the LFA lightweight champ and is riding a three-fight win streak into this fight. Hubbard is a fascinating potential but Ramos has shown he can finish opponents inside the Octagon, and he must be a solid favorite here.
Danny Roberts vs. Michel Pereira, UFC Fight Night 151
Welterweights Danny Roberts and Michel Pereira are set to battle. Roberts (16-4) is currently 5-3 at the UFC and he is coming off of a controversial entry loss to Claudio Silva. Pereira (21-9, two NC) is making his UFC debut following a KO win in Road FC. Together with his UFC experience, 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 currently riding a two-fight losing skid. This looks like a fantastic bounce-back fight for Arce, that I anticipate to be a sizeable favorite.
