Bryan Caraway vs. Lucas Martins to square off at UFC 170
By Evan Stoumbelis
February’s UFC 170 card looks to be taking shape. The UFC announced today that bantamweights Bryan Caraway (Pictured alongside Miesha Tate) and Lucas Martins will square off on the already stacked card.
Ironically, headlining the card will be Caraway’s nemesis, Ronda Rousey. The two also saw eachother on TUF 18 when Caraway assisted his girlfriend Miesha Tate in coaching opposite Rousey.
Martins holds a 14-1 record in his MMA career, with his only loss coming to Edson Barboza back in January. Martins bounced back from the loss in his UFC debut to win back to back fights against Jeremy Larson and most recently Junior Hernandez in his bantamweight debut.
Caraway on the other hand has steadily been climbing his way up the bantamweight ladder, aquiring two fight bonus’ along the way. Caraway is 3-1 in the UFC since making his debut in 2011, and is riding a submission of the night performance against Johnny Bedford.
