After putting on one of the greatest MMA card’s in the history of the sport this past Saturday at UFC 290, the world’s premiere fight league will attempt to cover the entire quality spectrum by returning to the the dull and drab APEX facility this Saturday (July 15th) for one of the worst booked events (on paper) in recent memory. The good news is that going into an event like this with such low expectations, can easily result in a feeling of over-production. With that being said, let’s dig around and see what sort of meat can be found on this bone.

At 41-years-of-age, the UFC’s former bantamweight champion Holly Holm will be headlining this card with the promotion’s #10 ranked 135-pounder, Mayra Bueno Silva. Holm is a veteran that has been a class act forever, and should be revered as one of the greats in women’s MMA. Does that mean she is fun to watch? No.

Since 2015, Holly has competed in 14 UFC fights, and only four of them ended in exciting fashion. She kicked Ronda Rousey and Bethe Correia in the head, and then got strangled by Miesha Tate and head kicked by Amanda Nunes. Outside of that, though, the bulk of Holly’s matches have been riddled with underwhelming decisions full of empty volume, tons of kiais, and plenty stale clinching exchanges.

Not to be a total Debbie Downer, the bright side here is that Holm’s dance partner has plenty of finishes to her credit. Bueno Silva won a UFC contract on the strength of a Ninja Choke on Dana White’s Contender Series, and from there she finished four of her five promotional wins by way of submission. That includes a wicked kneebar of Lina Länsberg in her last outing. This doesn’t mean that she is going to go out there and sub Holly, who is actually a high-level grappler in her own right, but it does create a glimmer of hope for some potential excitement.

This UFC fight night co-main of this card will include a matchup between some unranked middleweights when the 16-4 Albert Duraev tangles with 16-5 Jun Yong Park. Before that, longtime UFC heavyweight Walt Harris will attempt to get back on track by facing Contender Series alumnus, Josh Parisian. Harris vs. Parisian has been scrapped due to a USADA issue. As for the rest of the card, you’ll find a few fun action fighters like Ottman Azaitar, Terrance McKinney, and Tyson Nam, but there’s also a bunch of names on deck that have yet to earn a UFC victory.
