The UFC’s third ESPN card will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The headliner was originally supposed to be a rematch between Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler. Although about a week ago Tyron withdrew due to injury. Robbie stated that instead of finding a replacement fight, he would rather wait for Tyron. Witch is why the UFC made a dream fight with Francis Ngannou and Junior Dos Santos. They have also decided to add more talent to the under card. With a bantamweight fight between Sérgio Pettis and Ricardo Ramos.
Sergio holds a 17-5 MMA record , but is coming off a two fight losing streak. This will be his second fight since returning to 135 as well. Pettis has beat some of the best guys at flyweight, and has only lost to top competition. Holding losses to Cejudo, Rob Font, and Jussier Formiga.
Ramos is 12-2 in his career , going 3-1 in the UFC. His most recent fight was early February when he got knocked out by Said Nurmagomedov. 9 out of his 12 wins are by way of finish. He has also fought as heavy as featherweight before.
With Sergio moving up in weight recently and giving up a 3 inch height advantage, it’s safe to say Ramos will have the size advantage. He also is proven to be more of a finisher then Pettis. On the flip side though while Pettis only has 8 more fights then Ramos, he has fought way stiffer competition. That experience with top level fighters should be the deciding factor in his fight, if Ramos cannon finish the fight early.
