This Saturday, August 8, the action returns to the United States, with the UFC Apex’s Las Vegas 6, event with a huge expectation created. Thus, Americans will receive the second show in the same week, which will have several important names in the world of MMA. It is sure that they will star in several exciting combats. With several fights taking place this weekend, the spectacle of the middleweight division between Derrick Lewis vs Aleksei Oleinik being the star of the day. Also, there are five fighters to keep track of.
With the intention of achieving his second victory in UFC, prepared with everything to achieve it. In June he debuted in the octagon with a quick TKO over Frank Camacho and is ready to go back and show why he needs to be followed closely in the featherweight division. Of his 16 wins, 13 have been by completion. He has a wide variety of resources, both standing and on the floor, so he is not usually an easy opponent. His rival Gavin Tucker is a similar, versatile fighter who is also looking for his second win in a row.
It will quickly return to the octagon of UFC. Just a month ago, he finished Charles Byrd for TKO in the second round and in UFC Vegas 6 will be back. This will be so to measure the knockout Darren Stewart. He is one of the talents that emerged from the Dana White´s Contender Series and, although he had a difficult debut, he recovered and is now looking to win triumphs. The Hawaiian has finished with 10 opponents: seven by knockout and three by submission.
She will be measured with Yana Kunitskaya, which will not be easy for her. Five months ago, the Lithuanian became the rooster champion of Invicta FC, a title that she vacated to start a new stage in her career in the Octagon. Her specialty is jiu jitsu and, of her nine wins, eight have been by submission (all by Armbar). Before this new opponent, she must be careful, since the Russian is a powerful striker so her ability to control her attacks and take her to the territory she dominates will be key to victory.
His last name has remained undefeated as a professional since it started. His presentation in the octagon will not be easy. A rival like Nasrat Haqparast is a good test to show your level and start your journey in the company. In 2018 he won his DWCS match, but had to wait a couple of years to sign his contract. Now, he seeks to become one of the fighters to follow at 155 pounds and remains a perfect mark in his career with six wins, three of them by completion.
While it will make its debut in UFC, knows that he has the potential to finish Youssef Zalal. In the Contender Series he surpassed his rival and it was time to present himself in the highest company, against an opponent with a high floor level. Most of Barrett’s victories have been by knockout, so he must take advantage of his fists, knees and kicks to prevail in # UFCVegas6. However, on the canvas also has a worked technique that will test.
