Two new matchups have recently been reported for a June 25th UFC card. These matchups are the first to be reported for that date, and the location for the event is not known at the moment.
Albazi To Return Against Veteran Elliott
Veteran Tim Elliott will attempt to stop returning flyweight prospect Amir Albazi’s momentum in a fight later this year. News of this fight was first reported by mma.ideas.
Albazi has picked up two wins since joining the UFC roster. He won his promotional debut in 2020, submitting Malcolm Gordon within a round via triangle choke. His last fight was over a year ago, defeating Zhalgas Zhumagulov at UFC 257.
Elliott scored a win in his last appearance, beating Tagir Ulanbekov via unanimous decision just earlier this month at UFC 272.
Frey, Demopoulos Matched
Riding the success of her first-ever UFC victory, former LFA Strawweight Champion Vanessa Demopoulos is expected to face Jinh Yu Frey, per Marcel Dorff of Eurosport Netherland.
Vanessa earned a submission win earlier this year, submitting Silvana Gomez Juarez at UFC 270. This put her back into the win column after losing her UFC debut to JJ Aldrich in 2021.
Frey is currently riding a two-fight winning streak. The former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion went the distance in both of her fights last year, beating Gloria de Paula and Ashley Yoder on scorecards.
