Melissa Martinez is out of the scheduled women’s strawweight bout against Iasmin Lucindo at the UFC Fight Night event on April 22.
Now, Brogan Walker will step in the place of Melissa Martinez on short notice and will fight Iasmin Lucindo at the UFC Las Vegas event on April 22, 2023.
MMA Melotto was the first one to report this change which was later confirmed by multiple other sources as well.
Iasmin Lucindo recently lost her UFC debut against Yazmin Jauregui. She gave her a tough competition but in the end, she lost the match via unanimous decision.
Brogan Walker also failed to impress in her inaugural UFC match. She was defeated by Juliana Miller via third-round TKO.
Now, both these women will be determined to get their first win in the UFC and rebound from their previous loss when they collide inside the octagon on April 22.
The UFC Fight Night event on April 22 will be headlined by Sergei Pavlovich vs Custis Blaydes heavyweight bout.
