UFC On ESPN 43 takes place this coming Saturday night, March 25th in San Antonio, Texas and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.
In the main event of the evening there’s bantamweight action as the No.3 ranked Marlon Vera looks to extend a four-fight winning streak against the No.5 placed Cory Sandhagen, who bounced back from an unsuccessful attempt to win the interim title by picking up a TKO win last time out.
After a lengthy layoff the 41-year-old Holly Holm lost out by split-decision to Ketlen Vieira upon her return last year and now will try to get back on track in the co-main event against the 33-year-old Yana Santos, better known as Yana Kunitskaya, who recently married fellow UFC fighter Thiago Santos and returns to action after giving birth to their daughter a year ago.
Andrea Lee is coming off a decision loss following back-to-back victories as she prepares to take on Maycee Barber, who has pieced together a three-fight winning streak over the past couple of years.
Austin Lingo steps in on a week’s notice looking for his third win in a row as he takes on Nate Landwehr, who also comes in to this one after back-to-back wins.
Alex Perez has suffered two losses in a row via submission and now locks horns with Manel Kape, who has strung together a three-fight winning streak in the flyweight division.
Opening up the main card will be Chidi Njokuani, who started off his UFC run with back-to-back KO victories, but was TKO’d himself last time out and now competes against Albert Duraev, who is 1-1 in the UFC so far.
