Two bouts were added to the UFC's busy April slate, providing fight fans with a look at a pair of lightweights coming off big wins and a matchup pitting a veteran bantamweight contender against a former Invicta FC standout entering the Octagon for the first time.
On Apr. 8 in Buffalo, the UFC 210 card at KeyBank Center will see New York's own Gregor Gillespie attempt to keep his unbeaten record intact when he faces Andrew Holbrook. In his UFC debut last September, Gillespie traveled to Brazil to defeat Glaico Franca, but he will get a home game against Holbrook, who is coming off a big November victory over Jake Matthews.
On Apr. 22, the UFC's return to Nashville got another intriguing addition to the fight card, as veteran 135-pound contender Alexis Davis faces newcomer Cindy Dandois. Davis currently sports a 4-2 UFC record heading into the bout with Dandois, a Belgium native who has won three in a row, with two of those victories coming via submission over UFC vet Jessamyn Duke and current interim Invicta featherweight champion Megan Anderson.
