UFC On ESPN 22 Fight Card

UFC On ESPN 22 takes place this coming Saturday night, April 17th in Las Vegas and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

In the main event of the evening, former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker was initially scheduled to fight Paulo Costa, but after he withdrew a month ago he’ll now be going up against Kelvin Gastelum instead.

In the co-main event, Jeremy Stephens faces the daunting challenge of overcoming five fights without registering a win as he goes up against Drakkar Klose, whose three-fight winning streak came to an end last time out when he was KO’d by Beneil Dariush.

Heavyweight veteran Andrei Arlovski steps in on short notice for Parker Porter to fight Chase Sherman on the main card.

With two losses in his last three fights, Luis Pena looks to get back to winning ways against Alex Munoz, who suffered a decision loss to Nasrat Haqparast in his UFC debut last time out.

Both Abdul Razak Alhassan and Jacob Malkoun have the dubious distinction of having been KO’d swiftly in their last Octagon outings at just 30 seconds and 16 seconds respectively, so they’ll be eager to make amends for that this time around.

Opening up the main card will be a featherweight fight between Bill Algeo and Ricardo Ramos.
