Burns vs. Magny

Despite losing two of his last three fights, Gilbert Burns is still the fifth-ranked welterweight in the UFC divisional rankings. His losses to Kamaru Usman and Khamzat Chimaev speak volumes about his willingness to climb into the octagon and go toe-to-toe against the best fighters in his weight class. He has eight victories by submission throughout his career, a direct reflection of his status as a 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Neil Magny has won three of his last four fights and at 35 shows no signs of slowing down. He’s been on the UFC roster since 2013 but never earned a shot at the title. Still, there are many who consider him the division’s gatekeeper. A fight with him is considered the ultimate test of whether an opponent truly belongs to the welterweight elite or not. Burns and Magny are sure to put on a show for fans in Rio de Janeiro; You won’t want to miss it!

Murphy vs. Andrade

Lauren Murphy and Jéssica Andrade each suffered a loss to Valentina Shevchenko in 2021. Although no woman has defeated the reigning UFC World Flyweight Champion, each has recovered well since those setbacks. Now both have their eyes on a possible rematch with Shevchenko for the championship belt. There’s only one problem; they get in each other’s way. Murphy versus Andrade is a showdown between two of the best flyweights in women’s MMA. You won’t want to miss it!

Craig vs Walker

Paul Craig and Johnny Walker are two of the top 15 light heavyweights in the UFC divisional rankings. However, neither was able to earn a title shot or make that coveted top-five plateau, which means becoming that the best of the best. Craig’s unanimous decision loss to Volkan Oezdemir in July 2022 ended his uptrend. Similarly, back-to-back losses in October 2021 and February 2022 cost Walker a chance to break into the division’s top 10. However, these are still two very talented fighters with championship aspirations. Be sure to tune in to see Craig and Walker risk it all on Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro!
