UFC Fight Night 151 takes place May 18 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York, and also the card lately 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 take place at UFC Fight Night 151, and the winner might 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) chose to Holm within her Octagon debut last 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 one of the most dangerous female featherweights out there. Spencer (6-0) won the Invicta title in her final bout, a submission win over Pam Sorensen. She’s completed four of her fights because 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 in the game. Although Spencer should not be counted from the fight, awarded Anderson’s past UFC experience ad popularity, I would expect her to be a big favorite here.
Neil Magny vs. Vicente Luque, UFC Fight Night 151
Welterweight contenders Neil Magny and Vicente Luque are set to match, 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 last November. Luque (15-6-1) is 8-2 at 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 much the 2019″Fight of the Year” at MMA. Magny has long been an underrated welterweight, and it has known to surprise from time to time, but given Luque’s win streak and his absurd finishing power, you need to favor 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 fight against Tom Breese in UFC London fell through at the last minute because of some Breese medical dilemma. He will instead get the opportunity to battle a higher-ranked competition in the form of Junior, the prior TUF winner.
Junior (10-2, 1 NC) is 7-2, 1 NC at the UFC and is now 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 series and defeated Cezar Ferreira by decision in his UFC debut. This will be a competitive fight, but awarded Junior’s Octagon experience 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 link 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 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 prospect but Ramos has shown he can complete 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 place to fight. Roberts (16-4) is currently 5-3 in the UFC and he’s coming from a contentious submission reduction to Claudio Silva. Pereira (21-9, two 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 by Nolan King of FloCombat. Arce (15-3) is 2-1 at the UFC and recently had a seven-fight win streak snapped with a split decision loss to Sheymon Moraes his out time. Erosa (22-7) is 0-3 at 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 expect to be a big favorite.
