10 UFC Fights That You Cannot Miss In May

10. Megan Anderson Vs. Felicia Spencer - UFC Fight Night 151

Since Cris Cyborg lost her title to Amanda Nunes at UFC 232 last December, the women's 145lb division has hit a bit of a rut. It's a division that's clearly crying out for fresh new blood, as it's at risk of falling into pub quiz levels of obscurity sooner rather than later.

However, there are hopes that talented Australian striker, Megan Anderson, could be the face of the division. She's certainly got the look of a fighter and has some solid striking fundamentals. When she's on the offensive, she mixes up her punches, elbows and kicks well and is quite accurate. She's also got some great physical attributes that give her an advantage over many of her opponents.

That being said, her movement can look a little robotic and not as fluid as you'd expect from a fighter at her level. In her fight against Cat Zingano, Zingano looked much faster than her and that could be her downfall in the future.

Luckily for her, Felicia Spencer doesn't really possess the sort of speed that would cause her problems. She's got some decent grappling skills and is quite powerful, but it shouldn't be enough to cause Anderson too much trouble.
