UFC Fight Night is set to get going this weekend from UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV on June 25. The six-bout main card is scheduled to get started at 10 p.m. ET. The main event will see Arman Tsarukyan taking on Mateusz Gamrot in a lightweight battle. The second fight on the main card will see Nate Maness take on Umar Nurmagomedov in a bantamweight bout.
Maness heads into this UFC event with the toughest test on the card. He is the largest underdog with only +625 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook to win his match. To his credit, Maness is coming in with a 14-1 record and has won four fights in a row. The lone loss of his career came before he made it to the UFC. This will be his fourth fight in the UFC and he has impressed. Most recently, he picked up the second-round knockout win over Tony Gravely in September of last year.
Nurmagomedov is the future of the bantamweight division in the UFC. He has a career 14-0 record and is only 26 years old. This will be his third fight in the UFC and he has impressed so far. He is coming off back-to-back submission victories bringing his career total to seven. Nurmagomedov fights with a rare tenacity and that likely plays into why he is the biggest favorite on the card with -900 odds to have his hand raised.
