Following last week’s Fight Night where Josh Emmett notched a split decision victory over Calvin Kattar, the promotion returns to the UFC Apex Facility in Las Vegas, United States for another Fight Night featuring lightweights Arman Tsarukyan and Mateusz Gamrot in the event headliner. It will be held on June 25, 2022.
Despite lacking name value, this event has the potential for plenty of excitement and is definitely one worth watching. Besides the promising headliner bout in the lightweight division, the card offers a couple more interesting-looking fights.
A welterweight affair pits Neil Magny against Shavkat Rakhmonov while Josh Parisian squares off with Alan Baudot in a heavyweight bout. Thiago Moises and Christos Giagos will lock horns in a lightweight fight. Other names on the main card are Umar Nurmagomedov, Nate Maness, Chris Curtis and Rodolfo Vieira. BettingPremier’s take on the main event will follow.

Arman Tsarukyan vs. Mateusz Gamrot
Tsarukyan has never been this high on a card thus far, and neither has Gamrot. Their combined professional record of 38-3 so far justifies them being featured in an event headliner. Both fighters are excellent strikers who are also pretty good on the mat. Tsarukyan holds an MMA record of 18-2 whereas Gamrot is 20-1.
Tsarukyan’s debut fight in the UFC was against Islam Makhachev in 2019 which the former lost via decision after pushing the Dagestani to the limit. Tsarukyan pulled off three consecutive victories following the loss. The Armenian is coming off having violently knocked out his last two opponents.
Gamrot started on the wrong foot as well, losing to Guram Kutateladze in his octagon debut. But the Pole has been impeccable ever since. He stopped Scott Holtzman, Jeremy Stephens and Diego Ferreira along the way with the win over Ferreira helping him enter the top 15.
Tsarukyan has a slight advantage over his foe when it comes to wrestling. He had even managed to take down Makhachev. Gamrot does have a solid takedown defence. This is a tough bout to call but Tsarukyan is the better fighter here a tad.
