After a notably poor fight night offering last week, the UFC has put together a much more fundamentally fascinating offering for their UFC Vegas 52 card this time around. In the main event, Jessica Andrade makes her return to the division where she was champ, to take on hard hitting Amanda Lemos. While prospects like Alexander Romanov, Maycee Barber, and Manel Kape have opportunities to pick up momentum on the way up their respective divisions.
For fans interested in diving deeper into a pretty decent undercard, check out the Prelims Vivi below.
The MMA Vivisection is brought to you by The Fine Art of Violence, a collection of art and essays recapping the year in MMA by Chris Rini, featuring the most talented artists and writers in Mixed Martial Arts. The book is available in both hard copy and digital formats at chrisrini.com.

For those of you following the picks made on the show, we started tracking them with the July 13th, 2020 Vivisections for ‘Kattar vs. Ige’... It has come to our attention after some careful scrutiny, that unfortunately some math errors in the stats tracking have been made along the way. This is being sorted out one event at a time. When the stats are done being audited they will be reported in each show post again. For UFC Vegas 51, Zane and Connor shared the same picks, so they went 9/14. No total cummulative stats are available at this time.
