UFC Fight Night 151 happens May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York, and the card recently had a number of bouts added to it. My first thoughts on the new matchups are below.
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 happen at UFC Fight Night 151, and the winner could very well be set up for a shot at 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 among the most dangerous female featherweights out there. Spencer (6-0) won the Invicta title in her last bout, a submission win over Pam Sorensen. She’s completed four of her struggles because making her MMA introduction in 2015, and the Montreal native appears to be a great signing by the UFC as among the few authentic female featherweights in the game. Although Spencer shouldn’t be counted from the struggle, awarded Anderson’s past UFC experience ad popularity, I’d expect her to be quite a big 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 off of a brutal KO loss to Santiago Ponziibbio last 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 streak that includes a knockout win over Bryan Barberena in what’s arguably so much the 2019″Fight of the Year» at MMA. Magny has long been an underrated welterweight and has proven to surprise from time to time, but given Luque’s win streak and his ridiculous finishing power, you need to prefer him quite 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 fight against Tom Breese at UFC London fell through at the last minute because of a Breese medical issue. He will rather get the opportunity 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 series that includes a submission win over Tim Boetsch in his last outing, which will be important to not occurred last April. Heinisch (12-1) is just one a four-fight win streak 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 favor 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 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 an intriguing potential but Ramos has proven he can finish opponents inside the Octagon, and he must be a strong favorite here.
Danny Roberts vs. Michel Pereira, UFC Fight Night 151
Welterweights Danny Roberts and Michel Pereira are place to battle. Roberts (16-4) is currently 5-3 in the UFC and he is coming off of a contentious submission loss to Claudio Silva. Pereira (21-9, two NC) is making his UFC debut after a KO win in Road FC. Together with his UFC expertise, expect Roberts to be the favored.
Julio Arce vs. Julian Erosa, UFC Fight Night 151
And eventually, a featherweight bout between Julio Arce and Julian Erosa is set, according to a report by Nolan King of FloCombat. Arce (15-3) is 2-1 at the UFC and lately had a seven-fight win streak snapped with a split decision loss to Sheymon Moraes his last time out. Erosa (22-7) is 0-3 at the UFC over two stints and is now riding a two-fight losing skid. This looks like a good bounce-back fight for Arce, that I expect to be a sizeable favorite.
