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 first thoughts on the new matchups are below.
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 might well be in line for 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 within her Octagon debut this past year in 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 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 authentic female featherweights in the sport. Although Spencer shouldn’t be counted out of this struggle, given Anderson’s previous UFC experience ad popularity, I’d expect her to become a big 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 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 streak that includes a knockout win over Bryan Barberena in what’s arguably so far the 2019″Fight of the Year” in MMA. Magny has been an underrated welterweight, and it has proven to surprise from time to time, but given Luque’s win series and his ridiculous completing power, you have to prefer him very heavily to get the business 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 issue. He’ll rather get the opportunity to fight a higher-ranked opponent in the kind of Junior, the former TUF winner.
Junior (10-2, 1 NC) is currently 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 final 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 choice within his UFC debut. This is going to be a competitive fight, but given Junior’s Octagon encounter 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 link between Davi Ramos and Austin Hubbard is set for this particular event. Ramos (9-2) is 3-1 at the UFC and has won his last three battles 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 prospect but Ramos has proven he can finish opponents within 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 at the UFC and he is coming from a contentious submission reduction 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 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 from 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 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, that I anticipate to be a big favorite.
