Number-nine-ranked UFC heavyweight Tai Tuivasa is in big need of a win this weekend after having lost his last three fights in a row.

He takes on the number-ten-ranked Marcin Tybura in the main event.

Tybura is also coming off of a loss, having dropped his most recent fight to Tom Aspinall, who KO’d Tybura in the first round of their bout last July.

Poland’s Tybura will stand one inch taller and have a three-inch reach advantage over Tuivasa. However, despite losing three straight, Tuivasa is still the slight betting favorite at -118 over Tybura’s -102.

Bryan Battle vs. Ange Loosa - Welterweight Division

Bryan Battle TALE OF THE TAPE Ange Loosa
29 Age 29
6 ft 1 in Height 5 ft 10 in
77 in Reach 74 in
10-2 Record 10-3

TUF winner Bryan Battle has won his last two fights in a row and will now co-main event this Saturday night against Ange Loosa - a fighter who also finds himself amidst a two-fight win streak.

The battle is coming off of an impressive second-round submission win over AJ Fletcher - a man that Loosa also recently beat along with Rhys McKee.

These two fighters are the same age but the taller Bryan Battle will also have a three-inch advantage in reach and is rightfully listed as the -180 favorite to win.

Ovince St Preux vs. Kennedy Nzechukwu - Light Heavyweight Division

Ovince St Preux TALE OF THE TAPE Kennedy Nzechukwu
40 Age 31
6 ft 3 in Height 6 ft 5 in
80 in Reach 83 in
26-17 Record 12-4

The oldest fighter on this main card is also the biggest betting underdog, as the 40-year-old Ovince St Preux is listed at +380 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

He takes on -500 favorite Kennedy Nzechukwu, an up-and-coming contender who will stand two inches taller than his opponent and who will also have a three-inch reach advantage. 

Both men are coming off of a loss in their most recent bouts and are looking to bounce back into the win column this Saturday.

Pannie Kinzaid vs. Macy Chiasson - Women’s Bantamweight Division

Pannie Kinzaid TALE OF THE TAPE Macy Chiasson
32 Age 32
5 ft 7 in Height 5 ft 11 in
68 in Reach 72 in
16-7 Record 8-3

Number-ten ranked women’s bantamweight looks to jump into the number-six spot currently held by Pannie Kinzaid this Saturday.

Both of these women are coming off of a loss and are both 2-2 over their past four fights each.

Chiasson, listed as a -205 favorite at DraftKings, will stand four inches taller than Kinzaid and will enjoy a four-inch reach advantage. 

Gerald Meerschaert vs. Bryan Barberena - Middleweight Division

Gerald Meerschaert TALE OF THE TAPE Bryan Barberena
36 Age 34
6 ft 1 in Height 6 ft
77 in Reach 72 in
35-17 Record 18-11

Gerald Meerschaert, a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, has had mixed success recently and has gone just 1-3 over his last four fights. He is coming off of a split-decision loss against Andre Petroski that took place at UFC 292 last August.

Bryan Barberena is also 1-3 in his last four, with those three losses coming in a row. He most recently dropped a decision to Makhmud Muradov last July.

Meerschaert already has the advantage in the grappling department but will also enjoy height and reach advantages this weekend. He is currently listed at -230 at DraftKings.
