UFC Fight Night: Vera vs. Cruz is set to get going this weekend from Pechanga Arena in San Diego, California on Saturday, August 13 There is a six-bout main card with the main event between top-10 bantamweights Marlon Vera and Dominick Cruz. There is a six-bout main card highlighted by a women’s flyweight fight between Ariane Lipski and Priscila Cachoeira that was originally scheduled for last week’s UFC Card
The veteran Lipski (14-7) has had mixed results since joining the UFC in 2019. She has a 3-4 record in the octagon but is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Mandy Bohm last September.
Cachoeira (11-4) has followed a similar path as Lipski since her UFC debut in February of 2018. Her first match was a submission loss to current flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko. Cachoeira, however, has won three out of her past four fights and a win Saturday could put her in the picture for a second shot at Shevchenko.

DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 54% of handle, 74% of bets on Lipski
A week later and the odds haven’t changed although the bet numbers have. I still believe the wild-swinging Cachoeira is like a good bet to drop Lipski, who sticks her chin out and has a tendency to get stopped. I don’t this is going to be a pretty fight by any stretch, but the finish could be thrilling...and violent.
