UFC announces four bouts for July 17 event, including Amanda Lemos vs. Montserrat Ruiz – MMA Root



The ranking weight has been added to the upcoming UFC show on July 17th.

The UFC announced Sunday that Amanda Lemos (9-1-1) will face Montserrat Ruiz (10-1) at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. ESPN was the first to report the match.

Also officially added to the map on July 17 is the heavyweight bout between Rodrigo Nascimento (8-1) and Alan Bodo (8-2), the bantamweight bout between Miles Jones (11-1) and Anderson dos Santos (21-8). and has previously reported a middleweight bout between Rodolfo Vieira (7-1) and Dustin Stolzfuss (13-2).

Combate first reported Nascimento vs. Bodo, and MMA Junkie reported Jones vs. dos Santos.

Lemos enters his next fight in a three-win streak, defeating former Invicta FC light heavyweight champion Livinkha Sousa, Mizuki Inoue and Miranda Granger. In her last match in March, Lemos ended Sousa with a first-round TKO. She is currently ranked 14th in the official UFC light heavyweight rankings.

Ruiz is pursuing his second UFC win since his successful debut in March against Cheyanne Buys. The victory by decision was not without controversy, as the fight ended in a heated verbal exchange between the two when Bui accused Conejo of spitting on her at the end of the fight. Montserrat denied the charge.
