This week’s UFC event in Raleigh, NC isn’t one of the promotion’s strongest offerings. The main card has a couple bouts of note on it, but otherwise fans will have to be forgiven if they look at much of the lineup and wonder just who any of these fighters are.
Notable bouts include Arnold Allen vs. Nik Lentz and Sara McMann vs. Lina Lansberg. The opening bouts between Herbert Burns & Nate Landwehr and Brett Johns & Tony Gravely should both be pretty action filled. But that’s not exactly a lot to hang a hat on.
