One of the weakest cards I ever laid eyes on, got some star power injection today. As Dana White and Mick Maynard announced some additions to UFC 250. Amanda Nunes vs Felica Spencer headline the card that was pushed back because of Covid-19. Glad to see this fight didn’t get canceled altogether.
The first addition is a bantamweight contender fight between two top-five opponents Aljamian Sterling vs Cory Sandhagen. There is potential for this bout to turn into a title fight depending on negotiations with Henry Cejudo. Another addition to the card is bantamweight bout Cody Garbrant vs Raphael Assuncao.
And last but not least the Suga Show returns to the cage. After his quick victory over José Alberto Quiñónez at UFC 248 O’Malley vowed to become more active. I’m all for this bantamweight match-ups. that division needed a jolt after TJ got pooped for EPDs and now Cejudo is retiring. We are going to see the rankings get reshuffled in a single night. Petr Yan will be watching closely. His next opponent will surely be a stand out on June 6th.
