|Brendan “All In” Allen||TALE OF THE TAPE||Jacob “Mamba” Malkoun|
|6‘2“ (188cm)||Height||5‘9“ (175cm)|
|75.0” (191cm)||Reach||73.0” (185cm)|

Brendan Allen has gone 3-1 so far in the UFC, and was the last man to fight UFC veteran Sam Alvey, where he defeated him by rear naked choke submission in round two. He is an extremely well rounded fighter and excels in grappling. To add to his list of advantages, Allen has moved down from middleweight to welterweight, which makes him very tall and rangy for the weight class. With all the experience and skills Allen possesses, this should be a straightforward win for him.
Jacob Malkoun started off his UFC career with a first round KO loss to Phil Hawes in his debut but has since gone on to secure impressive wins over Abdul Razak Alhassan and AJ Dobson, both by unanimous decision. Though his record may indicate inexperience, Malkoun has for many years been the main sparring partner of former UFC middleweight champion Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker. While Malkoun’s debut wasn’t what he was hoping for, he has since displayed heart and grit and toughness in his last two fights with excellent striking combos and cage control.
Brendan Allen by submission in round 2 (+600)
Choi Seung Woo vs Joshua Culibao – Featherweight Division
|Choi “Sting” Seung Woo||TALE OF THE TAPE||Joshua “Kuya” Culibao|
|6‘0“ (183cm)||Height||5‘10“ (177cm)|
|74.5” (189cm)||Reach||73.0” (185cm)|
|MOB Training Center||Team||Igor MMA|
|1 Loss||Current Streak||1 Win|
It’s been seven months since Seung Woo Choi last entered the octagon. He unfortunately lost his last fight by rear naked choke submission in the third round. Prior to that loss, Choi was on a three fight winning streak which included two unanimous decisions, as well as a first round knockout over Julian Erosa. Choi remains a dangerous opponent for anyone in the division as he possesses knockout punching power as well as strong grappling skills. He also has a very strong chin and has only been knocked out once, which happened early in his career.
Joshua Culibao has got quite a mixed bag of results so far in his UFC career. earning a win over Shayilan Nuerdanbieke in his most recent fight, as well as suffering a second round KO defeat to Jailin Turner, with a draw to Charles “Air” Jourdain inbetween. Overall throughout his career he has shown an ability to win rounds and come out on top in striking exchanges. However he is facing a fighter in Seung Woo Choi who possesses similar knockout power to Jailin Turner, the last and only fighter to knock him out. If Choi comes out aggressive in the opening round it could spell trouble for the patient Culibao.
Seung Woo Choi by KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+400)
Hayisaer Maheshate vs Steve Garcia – Lightweight Division
|Hayisaer Maheshate||TALE OF THE TAPE||Steve “Mean Machine” Garcia|
|6‘0“ (184cm)||Height||6‘0“ (183cm)|
|71.5” (182cm)||Reach||73.0” (185cm)|
|Enbo Fight Club||Team||Jackson Wink MMA|
|6 Wins||Current Streak||1 Win|
While Hayisaer Maheshate’s six fight winning streak and record may seem impressive, the opposition he has faced so far has not been great at all. Every single one of his opponents leading up to his contender series shot had more losses than wins on their records. While he did win his contender series fight by unanimous decision, he did not win easily and sustained a lot of damage during the fight.
Steve “Mean Machine” Garcia is a veteran of mixed martial arts and has been all around the regional scene, even making six appearances in Bellator. Although he lost his UFC debut to Luis Pena back in February of 2020, he went on to win his next fight by second round technical knockout over a game Charlie Ontiveros. In contrast to his opponent, Steve Garcia has only fought opponents with winning records throughout his career, and Maheshate looks to be in for a very rude awakening in what will be his UFC debut.
Steve Garcia by KO/TKO/DQ in round 2 (+600)
Andre Fialho vs Jake Matthews – Welterweight Division
|Andre Fialho||TALE OF THE TAPE||Jake “The Celtic Kid” Matthews|
|6‘0“ (183cm)||Height||5‘11“ (180cm)|
|74.0” (188cm)||Reach||72.0” (183cm)|
|2 Wins||Current Streak||1 Loss|
Jake Matthews AKA “The Celtic Kid”, enters this tough matchup coming off a third round submission loss to Sean Brady who is quickly climbing up the welterweight rankings. It’s not wise to judge him off of his last performance as prior to that, Matthews was on a three fight winning streak, with all wins coming by way of unanimous decision. With that being said, Matthews has shown a great ability to pace himself during fights, this tells us that the chances of a KO from the Australian are incredibly slim. He is well rounded in all facets of the sport but tends to be hesitant to pull the trigger and go for a finish.
On the other side of the octagon, Andre Fialho has a totally different style to his opponent. The Portuguese powerhouse swings wild but calculated shots with the baddest of intentions and if he lands, his opponents usually go to sleep. Seven of his wins came via knockout in the first round and that is the most common outcome of Fialho’s fights. In fact he is currently on a two fight winning streak, both by first round KO where he defeated Miguel Baeza and Cameron VanCamp consecutively. .
Andre Fialho by KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+275)
Kyung Ho Kang vs Batgerel Danaa – Bantamweight Division
|“Mr Perfect” Kyung Ho Kang||TALE OF THE TAPE||Batgerel “Storm” Danaa|
|5‘9“ (176cm)||Height||5‘7“ (171cm)|
|73.0” (185cm)||Reach||70.0” (178cm)|
|Busan Team MAD||Team||Jackson Wink MMA|
|1 Loss||Current Streak||1 Loss|
Kyung Ho Kang AKA “Mr Perfect” enters his eleventh UFC matchup after seven months of inactivity. He faces notorious first round finisher Batgerel “Storm” Danaa this time around in what is sure to be an all out brawl. With both fighters coming off a loss it will be interesting to see who can bounce back from defeat, especially in the case of Batgerel Danaa, who lost his last fight to Chris “El Guapo” Guitierrez in round two of their bout via a devastating combination of a spinning backfist followed by elbows.
While Kyung Ho Kang has shown great stamina and durability in the past, very few of Batgerel Danaa’s opponents make it out of the first round. Kyung Ho Kang is however at the tail end of his career while Batgerel Danaa seems to be improving more or less as he gains more experience in the UFC.
Batgerel Danaa by KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+380)
Liang Na vs Silvana Gomez Juarez – Women’s Strawweight Division
|Liang “Dragon Girl” Na||TALE OF THE TAPE||Silvana “La Malvada” Gomez Juarez|
|5‘5“ (165cm)||Height||5‘3“ (160cm)|
|67.3” (171cm)||Reach||63.0” (160cm)|
|Longyun MMA Gym||Team||Entram Gym|
|1 Loss||Current Streak||2 Losses|
Both of these Straweights are known to start the fight with all guns blazing in an attempt to get a first round finish. There is a huge gap in age, but despite being 13 years younger than her opponent, Liang Na has a lot more experience in the sport. Silvana Gomez Juarez has faced some of the best fighters in her division throughout her MMA career and has won four of her fights by KO in the first round.
Liang Na’s two most recent wins were by armbar in the first round while Silvana Gomez Juarez’s current two fight losing streak were both first round armbar losses. If past results are any indication what comes next, then expect this fight to end quickly in the opening round.
Liang Na by submission in round 1 (+380)

Check out our UFC 275 main card picks here!
|Ramona Pascual||TALE OF THE TAPE||Joselyne “La Pantera” Edwards|
|5‘7“ (170cm)||Height||5‘8“ (173cm)|
|66.1” (168cm)||Reach||70.0” (178cm)|
|Syndicate MMA||Team||Kings MMA|
|1 Loss||Current Streak||2 Losses|
Ramona Pascual showed durability and grit in her UFC debut where she faced Josiane Nunes and lost via unanimous decision. Nunes was Pascual’s most experienced opponent up to that point, however her next opponent Joselyne Edwards is an even bigger step up in competition. Edwards, who is currently on a two fight losing streak, has faced tougher opposition than her next opponent throughout her career and has already scored a UFC win after defeating Chinese fighter Yanan “Mulan” Wu by unanimous decision in her debut.
Expect many striking exchanges in the first round, if not a finish. Edwards may look to exploit Pascual’s inexperience in grappling and go for an armbar as she has done in the past. Both of these bantamweights have displayed finishing ability in the past and this will certainly be an interesting scrap to start off UFC 275.
Joselyne Edwards by submission in round 2 (+2000)
