UFC Flyweights Headline First of Three Additional Events at Apex
Presently UFC is just a runaway success hit and Boxing is fixing to copy their winning formula, while all the other Major Sports are clearly spinning their wheels in the mud.
Combat sports fighters swim among sharks but don’t kid yourself, every professional league has sharks. It just seems that they are more apparent in the UFC.
But that’s the life Fighters knowingly signed up for and the reality is combat sports participants and fans are not going be rescuing cats from trees.
They are just not built that way.
Boxing has lots of ground to make up and at this stage simply can not compete with UFC because they are just lightning up with their events, but both combat sports – along with ESPN’s help, will be fighting for the same fans’ attention, so is definitely a Win-Win for all of us.
The casual observers are just Click Bait and can be had just with an ordinary headline.
UFC ACTION CONTINUES IN LAS VEGAS WITH THREE ADDITIONAL EVENTS FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE AS NO. 1 RANKED JESSICA EYE WELCOMES STRAWWEIGHT STANDOUT CYNTHIA CALVILLO TO THE FLYWEIGHT DIVISION.
Also, the middleweights bout between KARL ROBERSON vs. MARVIN VETTORI is going to be featured on Saturday, June 13th in Las Vegas.
All UFC events are presently closed to the public and will be produced with only essential personnel in attendance.
UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas on June 13th will be the first of three events taking place at UFC Apex of a total of 27 respectively.
One of the toughest competitors in all of women’s MMA, Jessica Eye intends to defend her spot at the top of the flyweight rankings and work her way back to another shot at the title.
Experiencing a career resurgence since moving to flyweight, Eye has netted impressive wins over Jessica-Rose Clark, Katlyn Chookagian, and Viviane Araujo. She now looks to spoil the debut of Cynthia Calvillo in her first UFC main event.
A standout in the UFC women’s strawweight division ever since her debut in 2017, Calvillo aims to make a statement in her first fight as a flyweight.
A top prospect in women’s MMA, Calvillo established herself with notable victories over Cortney Casey, Joanne Calderwood, and Pearl Gonzalez. She now looks to finally compete at her full potential and build a case for her first UFC title shot.
A veteran of Dana White’s Contender Series, Karl Roberson looks to extend the longest winning streak of his UFC career with another signature finish. A well-rounded prospect with a variety of finishes both on the feet and the ground, Roberson has earned stoppages over Ryan Spann, Darren Stewart, and Roman Kopylov. He now aims to be the first person to ever finish Martin Vettori and break into the middleweight top 15.
While Marvin Vettori looks to secure a signature win to catapult him into the rankings. Arguably the top Italian prospect in the UFC, Vettori holds wins over Vitor Miranda, Cezar Ferreira, and Andrew Sanchez. He now seeks to earn his third win in a row and work his way towards a rematch with champion Israel Adesanya.
