UFC 264 Fight Card: 3 Underrated Scraps to look Forward to

by Sania Shinde writer
UFC 264 is expected to take place on July 10 2021, at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The main event will be the much awaited rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. Gilbert 'Durinho' Burns will face Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson in a welterweight bout on the main card.

Aside from the above bangers, the promotion is still focusing on putting together a packed battle card for UFC 264 Live Stream. In this article, we look at three underestimated battles that are rumored to be in the works for UFC 264.

UFC 264 will have three underestimated scraps:
#3 Jennifer Maia versus Jessica Eye
According to MMA Fighting, UFC flyweights Jessica Eye and Jennifer Maia may square off inside the Octagon on July 10.

Jennifer Maia (18-7-1) is a former Invicta FC flyweight world champion who lost a unanimous decision to flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 255. Similarly, Jessica Eye (15-9, 1 no contest) last fought in the UFC against Joanne 'JoJo' Calderwood at UFC 257, where she was defeated by unanimous decision.

Despite the fact that both combatants have endured losses in recent fights, their upcoming clash promises to be explosive, as both are trying to return to championship contention.

Greg Hardy versus #2 Tai Tuivasa
Greg Hardy (7-3-0) congratulated Tai Tuivasa (7-3-0) on Instagram after the latter's KO/TKO triumph over Harry Hunsucker at UFC Vegas 22. The UFC claims to have given Hardy's wish to square up against 'Bam Bam.' According to MMA Junkie, the two gigantic giants will face off on July 10 at UFC 264.

Greg Hardy is coming off a second-round stoppage defeat to Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night: 183. Hardy was stopped for the first time in his career, snapping a two-fight winning run.

Meanwhile, Tai Tuivasa has won two straight matches since losing to Sergey Spivak in 2019. Most notably, the Australian heavyweight defeated Stefan Struve via KO at UFC 254 in October 2020.

According to Greg Hardy's callout update, 'The Prince of War' is ready to swing at Tai Tuivasa with bad intentions for their UFC 264 battle.

Ryan Hall versus Ilia Topuria, No. 1
The UFC 264 battle card will also have a featherweight wrestling match between Ryan Hall and Ilia Topuria. Adjara Sports broke the story first. Ilia Topuria, a submission expert, later announced the booking via Instagram.

"I have to be cautious when using a heel hook! There are so many things he needs to watch out for that he won't be able to keep track of them all! Nobody would be able to undo our triumph! Thank you to my colleagues at @firstroundmgmt for doing such an amazing job! El Matador returns on July 10th! I'll see you again, "Ilia Topuria wrote
Ryan Hall will make his much awaited return to the Octagon after defeating Darren Elkins in July 2019.
