Just like every week, there have been many fights added to upcoming UFC cards.
Lucie Pudilova vs. Irene Aldana – UFC 228
Irene Aldana, who was scheduled to fight on UFC 227 against Bethe Correia has been bumped to 228 with a new opponent. UFC announced that Aldana will face Lucie Pudilova on the UFC Fight Pass Early Prelims, presumably finishing the currently 14 fight card. Both fighters are coming off a victory, both via Unanimous decision.
Sean O’Malley vs. Jose Quinonez – UFC 229
Charismatic “Sugar” Sean O’Malley has been put back on assignment, with his next task being Jose Quinonez at UFC 229. The fight was announced by O’Malley himself Monday while on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. Quinonez has lost two of his nine career bouts, while O’Malley has stayed 10-0, undefeated. O’Malley broke into the UFC through season 1 of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, being one of the biggest personalities on the show. Since then he has picked up two more wins, both via scorecards. He was sidelined briefly after his last win as he suffered a foot injury that needed surgery.
Quinonez has been on a tear himself as well, being on a four fight win streak with the past three being going all three rounds. The only time that Quinonez has lost in the UFC was back in 2014 when he made his debut. Quinonez looks to improve to five wins in a row and to end O’Malley’s undefeated streak on the same night that McGregor challenges Nurmagomedov for a belt that he previously held.
Alan Patrick vs. Scott Holtzman – UFC 229
Adding to the Las Vegas card is Alan Patrick and Scott Holtzman. Reported by Combate and MMAFighting.com, Patrick and Holtzman will battle in the Lightweight division on October 6th at the T-Mobile Arena. UFC has yet to confirm this bout for the lineup.
