The underrated fights to watch at UFC Fight Night 151 in Ottawa, Canada
On Saturday, May 4th, the UFC makes its way back to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for Fight Night 151: Iaquinta vs Cowboy. Check the underrated fights to watch on Saturday’s fight card:
1. Sarah Moras vs Macy Chiasson
UFC women’s bantamweights go at it in the prelim main event of the evening. Sarah ‘Cheesecake’ Moras will be taking on TUF 28 winner and prospect, Macy Chiasson. Moras holds a professional record of 5-4, with 2 KOs, 2 submissions, and 1 decision. She has never been finished in her MMA career so far. She has 4 losses and they have all been by decision. Moras has fought some of the best fighters in women’s MMA today, such as former title challenger Raquel Pennington and current title challenger, Jessica Andrade. In her last fight, Moras dropped a unanimous decision to Talita Bernardo. She will definitely be looking to bounce back in a big way when she takes on TUF 28 winner, Macy Chiasson. Chiasson fought in the 145-pound weight class for the duration of TUF. Since it’s conclusion, she has decided to move down to the 135-pound division. Chiasson holds a professional record of 4-0, with 1 KO, 2 submissions, and 1 decision. Her only loss came in her amateur career, in her very first fight, when she fought current Invicta 145-pound champ, Felicia Spencer. Since then, she has won seven consecutive fights. In her most recent fight, she defeated Gina Mazany on the UFC 235: Jones vs Smith undercard. Chiasson managed to finish Mazany in the very first round.
Both of these women will be looking to create a big moment for themselves on Saturday night. You don’t want to miss it!

In his most recent fight, Bhullar fought Marcelo Golm at UFC Fight Night 138: Oezdemir vs Smith. Bhullar was victorious in this contest, taking a unanimous decision after three rounds.
