More fights scheduled from June to August for the UFC

The next fight scheduled is between Victoria Leonardo and Melissa Gatto as per reports from COMBATE. Leonardo came into the UFC after she won her fight at Dana White’s contender series.

The fight was stopped in the second round when Leonardo stunned her opponent with a couple of punches that resulted in a TKO.

Now she will face the newcomer Brazilian fighter Melissa Gatto. Gatto will make her UFC debut as the fight is set to take place in August this year.

The third fight is between Tim Means and Danny Roberts on June 19th. The fight will take place in the UFC Apex at UFC Fight Night: Jung vs Ige as per a tweet from Tim Means. Tim Means is a UFC veteran and has been competing for promotions since 2012.

His opponent Danny Roberts, also known as ‘Hot Chocolate’, will try to get on a winning streak because Roberts is on an inconsistent run in the UFC.

The final fight scheduled will take place between Sasha Palatnikov and Ramiz Brahimaj as reported by bjpenn.com. Both fighters currently fight in the Welterweight division. They come into the fight on the back of a loss in their last fight, respectively. The fight will take place on August 21st if everything goings according to the plan.
