UFC On ESPN 55 Fight Card

UFC On ESPN 55 takes place this coming Saturday night, April 27th in Las Vegas and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

In the main event No.5 ranked flyweight Matheus Nicolau looks to bounce back from a KO loss last time out when he goes up against the No.8 ranked Alex Perez, who comes in as a replacement for Manel Kape on a few weeks notice and has lost in his last three Octagon outings.

In the co-main event Ryan Spann will attempt to bounce back from two losses in a row when he fights Bogdan Guskov, who was submitted in his UFC debut, but has since earned a first round KO victory.

Both Ariane Lipski and Karine Silva are riding the momentum of three-fight winning streaks heading into their flyweight fight at the weekend.

Austen Lane has gone winless in his first two UFC fights and will try to making up for that at the third attempt when he faces the debuting Jhonata Diniz, who arrives from the Contender Series and holds a 6-0 record.

Opening up the main card will be Tim Means, who ended a three-fight losing slump with a TKO victory last time out and now squares up to Uros Medic, who was submitted in his last fight, leaving him with a 3-2 UFC record so far.
