|Rafael Fiziev||TALE OF THE TAPE||Mateusz Gamrot|
|5 ft 8 in||Height||5 ft 10 in|
|71 in||Reach||71 in|
|12-2||Record||22-2, 1 no-contest|
A former featherweight and lightweight KSW champion as well as a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, Poland's Mateusz Gamrot looks to move up in the UFC lightweight rankings with a win over Rafael Fiziev this Saturday.
Fiziev, although less experienced as a professional MMA fighter, has arguably fought bigger names during his time with the UFC and has defeated names such as Bobby Green, Renato Moicano and former champion Rafael dos Anjos.
Currently ranked at number-six in the lightweight division, Fiziev is coming off of a majority-decision loss at the hands of Justin Gaethje that took place at UFC 286 and was deemed the fight of the night. He had won six straight prior.
Gamrot has gone 5-1 over his last six fights, with that sole loss coming at the hands of top-five contender Beneil Dariush. Gamrot recently defeated Jalin Turner by split-decision at UFC 285 and is currently the number-seven ranked UFC lightweight.
A grappling ace, Gamrot will stand two-inches taller than Fiziev and has almost double the MMA experience. However, it is the younger Fiziev who will enter the octagon this weekend as the -155 favorite.

|Bryce Mitchell||TALE OF THE TAPE||Dan Ige|
|5 ft 9 in||Height||5 ft 7 in|
|70 in||Reach||71 in|
Mitchell vs Ige. Grappler vs Striker. This should be a great co-main event between two top-15 featherweight contenders.
With nine of his 15 wins coming via submission, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Bryce Mitchell is coming off of the first professional loss of his career: a submission loss at the hands of undefeated Ilia Topuria at UFC 282 last December.
Prior to the loss, Mitchell himself was undefeated, having won 15 straight fights - six of them coming under the UFC banner.
He takes on Dan Ige who, despite having NCAA division 3 wrestling credentials, is known for his striking and, more specifically, his power.
After dropping three in a row, Ige has been enjoying a bit of a resurgence as he has now won back-to-back fights against Damon Jackson (KO) and, most recently, Nate Landwehr (decision).
Mitchell will stand two-inches taller but Ige will have a one-inch advantage in the reach department. Despite the reach advantage, Ige is listed as the +170 underdog.
|Marina Rodriguez||TALE OF THE TAPE||Michelle Waterson-Gomez|
|5 ft 7 in||Height||5 ft 3 in|
|65 in||Reach||62 in|
There is no beating around the bush: former top-ten strawweight Michelle Waterson-Gomez needs a win this weekend.
The “Karate Hottie” has now lost her last three fights in a row and is just 1-5 in her last six. It was her opponent this weekend, Marina Rodriguez, who kicked off the losing streak for Waterson-Gomez - defeating her by decision back in 2021. She then went on to lose to Amanda Lemos and, most recently, Luana Pinheiro.
However, Rodriguez (ranked at number-eight in the division) is on a losing streak of her own. After enjoying a four-fight winning streak (that included her win over Waterson-Gomez), Rodriguez has now dropped back-to-back fights - most recently losing to Virna Jandiroba by decision at UFC 288 back in May.
Rodriguez - one-year younger than her opponent - will have a four-inch height advantage as well as a three-inch advantage in reach this Saturday. She is listed as the largest betting favorite on this main card at -310.
|Bryan Battle||TALE OF THE TAPE||AJ Fletcher|
|6 ft 1 in||Height||5 ft 10 in|
|77 in||Reach||67 in|
TUF 29 winner Bryan Battle looks to start a new winning streak this weekend as he takes on impressive newcomer AJ Fletcher.
Battle won his first three fights in the UFC before dropping a decision to Rinat Fakretdinov last December. He has fought once more since that loss, earning a first-round knockout over Gabe Green back in May.
He takes on AJ Fletcher, a fighter who was undefeated prior to signing with the UFC and who had a stunning flying knee KO on the Contender Series. However, Fletcher lost his first two bouts with the promotion via decision.
With that said, Fletcher did earn his first UFC win in his last contest by submitting Themba Gorimbo in the second-round of their fight this past February.
Unsurprisingly, with a three-inch height and ten-inch reach advantage, Bryan Battle comes in as the -175 favorite over Fletcher.
|Ricardo Ramos||TALE OF THE TAPE||Charles Jourdain|
|5 ft 9 in||Height||5 ft 9 in|
|72 in||Reach||69 in|
Standing at an equal height and with just a one-year difference in age, Brazilian BJJ black belt Ricardo Ramos will kick off the main card against Canadian BJJ black belt Charles Jourdain.
Ramos, who will have a three-inch reach advantage in the bout, is 2-2 over his last four fights and is coming off of a performance of the night-earning, first-round knockout win over Danny Chavez. However, that bout took place in June 2022 and Ramos has been out of action ever since.
The Brazilian fighter had a March 2023 fight scheduled but it was canceled when Ramos missed weight by eight-pounds.
Charles Jourdain is also 2-2 in his last four fights and is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Kron Gracie that took place at UFC 288 back in May.
