Nursulton Ruziboev vs Sedriques Dumas - Middleweight division

Bill Algeo vs Kyle Nelson - Featherweight division

Erin Blanchfield TALE OF THE TAPE Manon Fiorot
24 Age 34
5 ft 4 in Height 5 ft 7 in
68 in Reach 65 in
12-1 Record 11-1

Number-four ranked women’s flyweight Erin Blanchfield remains undefeated in the UFC and hasn’t lost a professional bout since 2019. The 24–year–old is coming off of a unanimous decision win over former title challenger Taila Santos that took place last August.

She takes on the number-six ranked Manon Fiorot - a fighter ten years Blanchfield’s senior but also a fighter who also has yet to taste defeat in the octagon.

Fiorot hasn’t lost since her pro debut in 2018 and is coming off of September 2023 win over the former strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas.

Fiorot will stand three inches taller but the younger Blanchfield will enjoy a three-inch advantage in reach. Blanchfield is listed as -162 at DraftKings.

Vicente Luque vs. Joaquin Buckley - Welterweight Division

Vicente Luque TALE OF THE TAPE Joaquin Buckley
32 Age 29
5 ft 11 in Height 5 ft 8 in
75.5 in Reach 76 in
22-9-1 Record 17-6

After losing his opponent the day before UFC 296, Vicente Luque almost found himself without an opponent once again as his original opponent for this weekend - Sean Brady - was injured. Enter Joaquin Buckley.

The former middleweight is 2-0 since moving to welterweight and is coming off a unanimous decision win over Alex Morono last October.

Luque is coming off of a decision win over former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos that took place last August. That win snapped a two-fight skid for the number-11 ranked welterweight.

With a three-inch height advantage and black belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Luta Livre, Luque will enter the octagon as the betting favorite and is currently listed as -155 by oddsmakers.

Chris Weidman vs. Bruno Silva - Middleweight Division

Chris Weidman TALE OF THE TAPE Bruno Silva
39 Age 34
6 ft 2 in Height 6 ft
78 in Reach 74 in
15-7 Record 23-10

Things just haven’t been the same for Chris Weidman since losing his middleweight championship. Winning the belt in 2013 as an undefeated fighter, Weidman lost the title in 2015 and has gone just 2-6 since then and has also missed significant time due to leg and neck injuries.

Weidman made his octagon return last August after nearly two years away but lost that comeback fight via decision to Brad Tavares.

The former champ takes on Bruno Silva, a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu but a fighter who has also struggled as of late. Silva is coming off a decision loss at UFC 294 and is just 1-4 over his last five fights.

Weidman, a +230 underdog in this bout, will still come in with a two-inch height and four-inch reach advantage over Silva.

Nursulton Ruziboev vs. Sedriques Dumas - Middleweight Division

Nursulton Ruziboev TALE OF THE TAPE Sedriques Dumas
30 Age 28
6 ft 5 in Height 6 ft 2 in
76 in Reach 79 in
33-8-2 Record 9-1

Possibly the tallest fighter in the middleweight division, the 6 ft 5 in Nursulton Ruziboev will take on the lanky Sedriques Dumas - a middleweight boasting a 79-inch reach.

Ruziboev hasn’t lost a fight since 2019 but the 43-fight veteran only made his UFc debut last July, where he earned a first-round TKO over Brunno Ferreira.

Sedriques Dumas is also coming off of a big win, having defeated Abu Azaitar via decision at UFC 294. It was his second win in a row after having lost his UFC debut earlier the same year.

Only two years separate these two fighters, but the taller Ruziboev has 33 more pro-fights of experience compared to his opponent. He is listed at -285 at DraftKings.

Bill Algeo vs. Kyle Nelson - Featherweight Division

Bill Algeo TALE OF THE TAPE Kyle Nelson
34 Age 32
6 ft Height 5 ft 11 in
73 in Reach 71 in
18-7 Record 15-5-1

Another Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt on this main card, Bill Algeo looks to earn his third win in a row after having defeated T.J. Brown by submission and, most recently, Alexander Hernandez via unanimous decision last October.

He takes on Canada’s Kyle Nelson, a man also looking for his third win in a row - having defeated both Blake Bilder and Fernando Padilla via unanimous decision.

The BJJ black belt Algeo will have both height and reach advantages over Nelson and is thus considered the -218 favorite heading into this matchup

Chidi Njokuani vs. Rhys McKee - Welterweight  Division

Chidi Njokuani TALE OF THE TAPE Rhys McKee
35 Age 28
6 ft 3 in Height 6 ft 2 in
80 in Reach 78 in
22-10, 1 no-contest Record 13-5-1

One of the largest welterweights in the division, Chidi Njokuani went from a four-win streak to suffering three losses in a row. He looks to snap that losing skid this Saturday in the main card’s kickoff fight.

He takes on Rhys McKee - a fighter who was cut from the UFC once before but won three in a row outside the promotion with Cage Warriors. He re-signed with the UFC in 2023 but lost his first fight back to Ange Loosa via decision.

Njokuani will stand one inch taller and have a two-inch reach advantage over McKee. He is listed as the favorite here at -198 on DraftKings.
