UFC On ESPN 48 Fight Card

UFC On ESPN 48 takes place this coming Saturday night, July 1st in Las Vegas and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

In the main event there’s middleweight action as Sean Strickland looks to build on a decision win over Nassourdine Imavov last time out when he goes up against Abus Magomedov, who won his UFC debut against Dustin Stoltzfus by TKO in just 19 seconds.

In the co-main event Damir Ismagulov attempts to bounce back after his five-fight winning streak ended in December of last year, with his next opponent being Grant Dawson, who is undefeated in his eight UFC fights to date.

After winning four of his last five fights, Max Griffin now faces the 14-0 Michael Morales, who has won his 1st two UFC bouts by TKO.

Ariane Lipski won her last fight, but is only 4-5 in her UFC run so far, while Melissa Gatto earned TKO victories in her first two UFC fights, but then suffered a loss last time out.

Ismael Bonfim had a dream UFC debut in January when he KO’d Terrence McKinney with a flying knee and now fights Benoit Saint Denis, who lost in his debut in 2021, but has since picked up two stoppage wins in a row.

After a 1st round KO finish of Gregory Rodrigues in his first UFC fights, Brunno Ferreira now squares up to a late replacement in the debuting Nursulton Ruziboev, who holds a 34-8 career record.
