Amanda Lemos vs Marina Rodriguez which was originally supposed to take place at UFC 280 will now be the main event of the UFC Vegas 64.
During the broadcast of UFC 280, it was announced that the women’s strawweight bout between Amanda Lemos and Marina Rodriguez would headline UFC Fight Night 214 on November 5 later this year.
Earlier, Bryce Mitchell vs Ilia Topuria featherweight bout was supposed to be the main event of UFC Vegas 64.
Marina Rodriguez is in the red hot form and is on a four-fight winning streak. She is coming off a split win against Yan Xiaonan. Her last loss came against Carla Esparza back in July 2020.
On the other hand, Lemos’ five-fight winning streak was snapped by Jessica Andrade earlier this year. She rebounded from this loss and defeated Michelle Waterson earlier this year in July.
Now, it remains to be seen who will emerge victorious in the main event of UFC Vegas 64 on November 5.
