Location: California, US

Venue: Save Mart Center

After impressing on the UFC’s new show; ‘Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series’, the undefeated Benito Lopez has been awarded a UFC contract and makes his UFC debut against Albert Morales.

Both bantamweights are very experienced for their age but Morales has the advantage of four UFC fights under his belt. He also arrived to the UFC undefeated but has struggled against the step-up in competition. He has only won one of his four fights which was a split decision over Andre Soukhamthath so is desperate to hand Lopez his first career loss.

The contrasting form is highlighted as the key stat but it will be intriguing to see how these men perform on the night. Morales hopes his UFC experience will be enough to tackle the youthful confidence of Lopez who is yet to taste defeat.
