Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado are here to breakdown tonight’s event; the guys are here with hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event.
On the 18th of May, 2019, the UFC put on their UFC Fight Night 152/UFC on ESPN+ 10 event brought to us from Rochester, New York.
The main attraction featured a Welterweight Bout between former Lightweight Champion, Rafael dos Anjos, and former Interim Lightweight Title contender, Kevin Lee. RDA came into this fight with a 28-11-0 record, after two losses, most recently defeating Robbie Lawler via Unanimous Decision at UFC on FOX 26, back in December of 2017. Meanwhile, his contender the ‘Motown Phenom’ had a 17-4-0 record coming into this fight off a loss to Al Iaquinta last December, last defeating Edson Barboza at UFC Fight Night 128 via Cut (Dr. Stoppage) at 2:18 in round 5. Not to be diminished by the main, we had a Middleweight Bout between Antônio Carlos Júnior vs Ian Heinisch as a last minute co-main event, after Neil Magny’s run in with the USADA.
