UFC Fight Night is set to get going this weekend from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, April 22 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a five-bout main card highlighted by a heavyweight fight between Sergei Pavlovich and Curtis Blaydes. Also notable on the main card is a women’s flyweight fight between Iasmin Lucindo and Brogan Walker.
Lucindo (13-5) is looking to bounce back after losing her UFC debut by way of unanimous decision last August to Yazmin Jauregui. It was a very contested fight and many praised her performance despite losing. The 21-year-old from Brazil is considered one of the up and coning prospects in the women’s flyweight division. Lucindo has a 66” reach along with a 36% striking accuracy.
Walker (7-3) similar to Lucindo, is looking to get back in the win column. She lost by way of third-round TKO to Julianna Miller last August. This fight was her debut and also the finale of the Ultimate Fighter. The 34-year-old from Guam has a 67” reach and striking accuracy of 62%. Walker will look to make the right adjustments and come away victorious this weekend.

In a matchup of two fighters hungry to get a win, Lucindo is the clear cut favorite over Walker and for good reason. Expect Walker to get tested throughout, as Julianna Miller connected with a late flurry in the third round of her previous fight. Lucindo by decision at -120 is the play.
