Tony Gravely vs Nate Maness is set for April 17th, as first reported by MMA Junkie. The bantamweight showdown will feature two hungry prospects coming in on a win.

The event location and venue have not been announced yet, but it is to be headlined by Paulo Costa and Robert Whittaker in a pivotal matchup for the middleweight division title picture!

The Road to Tony Gravely vs Nate Maness

Tony Gravely (20-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC) has a ton of experience for a fighter just 29 years of age. Fighting under a bunch of different promotional banners like Legacy Fighting Alliance, Cage Fury FC, and CES MMA, just to name a few.

Gravely was riding a seven-fight win streak until he clashed with Brett Johns at UFC on ESPN+ 24. Johns submitted the debuting fighter via RNC but Gravely bounced back with a decision win over Geraldo de Freitas at UFC Vegas 14.

Nate “Mayhem” Maness (13-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) won his debut UFC fight by decision against Johnny Munoz Jr. at UFC Vegas 5 before turning around and securing the submission victory over Luke Sanders at UFC Vegas 15.

With more wins by finish than by decision, Maness looks to be just what Dana White wants out of a young prospect. Undoubtedly both of these up-and-comers will be looking to find the finish.

It is not known where the Tony Gravely vs Nate Maness fight will land on the card, but you won’t want to miss this scrap! The UFC has yet to announce the full line-up for this event, but the reported bouts on the card are listed below:
