UFC 303 Adds Pyfer vs. Barriault, Waterson-Gomez vs. Robertson for July 29 Event

Oh boy, here we go. UFC 303 just got juicier. They’ve thrown in two more scraps that’ll have fans on the edge of their seats. First up, Joe Pyfer’s squaring off against Marc-Andre Barriault. That’s happening at middleweight, folks.

And guess what? The ladies aren’t left out. Michelle Waterson-Gomez is set to tangle with Gillian Robertson in the strawweight division. Talk about a double dose of excitement!

Now, let’s set the scene. The battleground? None other than the T-Mobile Arena, smack dab in the heart of Las Vegas. And it’s all going down on June 29. But wait, there’s more. The cherry on top is a welterweight clash featuring Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler. Can you feel the electricity?

Pyfer’s tale is one of highs and lows. After a trio of wins that had everyone talking, he hit a snag. A tough night at UFC Fight Night 236 saw him lose to Jack Hermansson. That loss snapped a five-fight win streak. Talk about a rollercoaster.

On the flip side, Barriault’s looking to bounce back. His 2024 debut didn’t go as planned, losing a nail-biter to Chris Curtis. But remember, this is the guy who notched wins over Julian Marquez and Eryk Anders in 2023. He’s no slouch.

Switching gears, let’s chat about “The Karate Hottie.” Waterson’s in a bit of a rough patch, with four consecutive losses. Her last outing? A tough TKO loss to Marina Rodriguez. She’s hungry for a comeback.

Then there’s Robertson. She’s been on a tear, winning three of her last four. Her latest victory? A second-round stoppage of Polyana Viana. She’s riding high.

So, there you have it. UFC 303 is shaping up to be a barnburner. With matchups like these, it’s anyone’s guess how the night will unfold. One thing’s for sure – it’s gonna be a wild ride.
