Another Asian fighter has been added to the UFC Vegas 90 card. Burmese flyweight Joshua Van will be taking on Lucas Rocha at the Apex Centre on April 6th.

Van (10-1) is the first Burmese fighter to compete for the UFC and has won his first three fights in the octagon. The 22 year old only signed for the promotion last year but has made a fast start.

He was last seen in action at UFC Vegas 84 where he stopped Felipe Bunes in the second round. A fourth round would surely be enough to secure him a spot in the rankings for the first time.

Rocha (17-1) is making his UFC debut after impressing on Dana White’s Contender Series. That bout was at bantamweight and was rescheduled after he came in 6lbs over the flyweight limit.

Asian fighters

As previously announced two Asian fighters will be competing on the UFC Vegas 90 card. Choi Seung-Woo has been matched with Morgan Charrière in a featherweight fight while Alateng Heili takes on Victor Hugo in a bantamweight bout.

Choi (11-6)  is coming off a win over Jarno Errens at UFC Singapore.  That snapped a three fight losing skid for the Korean who is a veteran of nine UFC fights.

Charrière (19-9-1) is riding a four fight winning streak that culminated in victory over Manolo Zecchini on his UFC debut. The Frenchman is a former Cage Warriors featherweight champion.

Winning streak

Alateng Heili (16-9-2) is coming off a decision loss to Chris Gutiérrez at UFC Vegas 81. The Chinese fighter has four wins and a draw from his seven octagon outings.

Victor Hugo (24-4) was awarded a UFC contract after putting together a 13 fight winning streak that culminated in victory over Eduardo Matias Torres Caut at Dana White’s Contender Series. In 2019 he fought at Pancrase 311 and beat Shinsuke Kamei by decision.

Best of the rest

In the main event Marvin Vettori (19-7-1) takes on Brendan Allen (23-5). The former is ranked 5# while the latter is #7 in the middleweight division.
