Fighting Lopez on July 13

May 14, 2019
Day will face off against Benito Lopez in a bantamweight matchup during UFC Sacramento on July 13.
ANALYSIS
Day is 8-3 as a pro and 0-1 in UFC, most recently losing to Liu Pingyuan via split decision in Pingyuan's home country of China. It was a very questionable decision when it was all said and done, as Day won the significant striking battle 100 to 55, recorded a takedown and was credited with two submission attempts. Nonetheless, he'll now be looking to even his record against Lopez, who is 1-1 with the promotion after dropping his most recent bout to Manny Bermudez via submission. Both men measure up at 5-10 with a 73-inch reach, with Day being the older fighter by nearly five years.

Can't be happy with the judges

Day lost to Pingyuan Lin via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night 141 on Saturday in Beijing, China.
ANALYSIS
Day will not like this result very much. He likely deserved the decision after winning the first two rounds. In the third round, Pingyuan took the back and nearly finished the fight, but Day survived. However, the judges did not appreciate his work and handed the decision to Pingyuan. In the first round, Day outlanded Pingyuan. On top of that, the Chinese fighter broke his hand and struggle to throw.
