The UFC are switching things up with a card on ABC this coming Saturday afternoon, July 16th and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.
In the main event there’s a clash between two leading featherweight contenders, with the No.2 ranked Brian Ortega going up against the No.3 placed Yair Rodriguez.
In the co-main event, Michelle Waterson will attempt to improve upon a recent record that’s seen her lose three of her last four fights when she fights Amanda Lemos, who saw a five-fight winning streak come to an end in April with a submission loss to Jessica Andrade.
Li Jingliang will seek to bounce back from a loss to Khamzat Chimaev last year when he locks horns with Muslim Salikhov, who is riding a five-fight winning streak in the promotion.
With only one win from his last four fights, the pressure is on Matt Schnell to come away with a victory against Sumadaerji, who by way of contrast has momentum on his side with a trio of wins.
Shane Burgos got back to winning ways last time out after two losses in a row beforehand, while Charles Jourdain has won in his last two trips to the Octagon.
Opening up the main card will be a rescheduled flyweight fight between Lauren Murphy and former bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate, who is making her debut in the weight class.
