An August 28th UFC event was confirmed earlier this week with two reported matchups for the date. While two fights are set for the event now, the location for the show is not confirmed at the moment.
Vieira To Rematch McMann
Ketlen Vieira and Sara McMann are set to face off for the second time in August. The matchup was first reported by Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie.
The UFC bantamweights met for the first time in 2017, where Vieira scored a second-round arm triangle choke submission.
Both fighters were entering their 2017 clash on win streaks. This time, they’re both attempting to come back after a recent loss.
McMann was submitted earlier this year, getting stopped in the third round of a bout by Julianna Pena. Her last win was over a year ago, when she scored a decision win against Lina Lansberg.
Vieira last competed in February, where Yana Kunitskaya took the decision nod over her.
Muradov Looks To Continue Undefeated UFC Run Against Meerschaert
Aiming to continue his undefeated climb up the middleweight division, Makhmud Muradov will fight Gerald Meerschaert, as confirmed by MMA Junkie on Saturday.
Muradov has been flawless through three fights in his UFC run. He scored his third win in the promotion early this year, stopping Andrew Sanchez in the third round with strikes at UFC 257.
Meerschaert returned to his winning ways just last month, submitting Bartosz Fabinski in the first round of a fight. Before then, the UFC veteran was on the losing end of two first-round stoppages.
