UFC 302: Middleweights Anthony Hernandez, Roman Dolidze Set for June 2 Clash

Anthony Hernandez is gearing up for a showdown. He’s set to face Roman Dolidze in a middleweight clash at UFC 302. Oh, and guess who spilled the beans first? MMAFighting.com, that’s who.

The venue? None other than the Prudential Center, nestled in Newark, New Jersey. Mark your calendars for June 2. And hey, it’s not just any fight night. We’ve got a heavyweight tussle too, featuring Jailton Almeida throwing down with Alexander Volkov.

Now, let’s talk about Hernandez. The guy’s on fire with a five-fight win streak under the UFC banner. Last time we saw him, he was wrapping things up with a neat second-round submission over Roman Kopylov at UFC 298. That was back on Feb. 17. And it’s not just Kopylov; he’s taken down some serious contenders like Edmen Shahbazyan, Marc-Andre Barriault, Josh Fremd, and Rodolfo Vieira.

Dolidze’s story? Well, it’s a bit rough lately. He’s hit a snag with two consecutive losses, a first in his pro career. It all started with Marvin Vettori handing him a unanimous decision defeat at UFC 286. Then, Nassourdine Imavov snagged a majority decision win against him at UFC Fight Night 235. Before this slump, Dolidze was cruising with four straight wins in the Vegas league.

So, there you have it. A tale of two fighters at a crossroads, each hungry for victory. UFC 302 is shaping up to be quite the spectacle. Don’t miss it.
