The UFC is back at the APEX for a pivotal strawweight clash, featuring the No. 3 ranked contender Amanda Lemos and No. 5 ranked Virna Jandiroba, with both fighters eyeing a potential title opportunity. Additionally, fan-favorite Dooho Choi makes his return to the Octagon, taking on Bill Algeo in an exhilarating featherweight matchup.

Initially scheduled for three rounds, the fight was upgraded to a main event slot, signifying its importance in the strawweight division's landscape. Both fighters are coming off impressive victories, with Lemos securing a unanimous decision win over Mackenzie Dern and Jandiroba riding a three-fight win streak.

Lemos (20-3), currently ranked #3 in the strawweight division, is looking to bounce back from her failed title bid against Zhang Weili last year. Meanwhile, Jandiroba (14-3-1), ranked #5, aims to continue her momentum and potentially secure another title shot with a win over Lemos.

This matchup promises fireworks, with both fighters known for their aggressive styles and well-rounded skillsets. The winner could very well be next in line for a shot at the strawweight championship.

UFC Vegas 94 is shaping up to be an exciting event for fight fans, with several other intriguing matchups on the card. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements in the lead-up to this highly anticipated event.
