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
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 in line to get 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 in her Octagon debut this past year at UFC 225 but rebounded nicely with a first-round TKO win over Cat Zingano at 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 last bout, a submission win over Pam Sorensen. She’s completed four of her struggles since making her MMA debut in 2015, and the Montreal native appears to be a fantastic signing by the UFC as one of the few true female featherweights from the game. Although Spencer shouldn’t be counted from the struggle, given Anderson’s previous UFC experience advertising 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 off of a brutal KO loss to Santiago Ponziibbio past November. Luque (15-6-1) is 8-2 in the UFC with all of his wins coming from stoppage, and he’s 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 has known to surprise from time to time, but given Luque’s win series and his ridiculous completing power, you have to favor him very heavily to get the job 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 due to a Breese medical dilemma. He’ll instead get the opportunity to fight a higher-ranked competition in the form of Junior, the former TUF winner.
Junior (10-2, 1 NC) is 7-2, 1 NC at the UFC and is now riding a five-fight win streak that includes a submission win over Tim Boetsch in his final outing, which will be important to not occurred last April. Heinisch (12-1) is one a four-fight win streak and defeated Cezar Ferreira by decision within his UFC debut. This will be a competitive fight, but awarded Junior’s Octagon encounter and vaunted submission game, you have 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 place for this event. Ramos (9-2) is 3-1 at 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 an intriguing 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 5-3 in the UFC and he is coming off of a contentious submission reduction to Claudio Silva. Pereira (21-9, two NC) is making his UFC debut after a KO win in Road FC. With his UFC expertise, expect Roberts to be the favorite.
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 in 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 in the UFC over two stints and is currently riding a two-fight losing skid. This looks like a fantastic bounce-back struggle for Arce, who I expect to be a big favorite.
