Jamie Pickett vs Joseph Holmes – Middleweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Jamie Pickett 12-6-0 +120


Joseph Holmes 7-1-0 -140


Jamie Pickett had a tough road to the UFC losing his first two fights on Dana Whites ‘‘Contender Series’’ until he finally earned a contract after winning by second round TKO in his third opportunity on the show. After earning his UFC contract, Pickett went on to lose his first two fights against Tafon Nchukwi and Jordan Wright until. In his most recent bout however, he earned a unanimous deciduous win over Laureano Staropoli. Joseph Holmes made his pro MMA debut at Bellator 218 where he lost by decision. After that initial loss Holmes went on to finish all of his future opponents within two rounds, earning him two wins by KO/TKO and five wins by Submission.

Joseph Holmes by Submission Round 2 (+900)

Pickett Vs Holmes UFC Vegas 46 15 01 2022

Court McGee vs Ramiz Brahimaj – Welterweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Court McGee 20-10-0 -110


Ramiz Brahimaj 9-3-0 -110


Ramiz Brahimaj always comes out aggressive for the submission from the get go and has earned eight of his wins via first round submission. If the UFC veteran Court McGee can survive the first round however, we could easily see him using his experience advantage to drag out a decision victory. Brahimaj is 8 years younger than the 37 year old McGee and that should give him a significant advantage especially in the opening round.

Ramiz Brahimaj by Submission Round 1 (+700)

TJ Brown vs Charles Rosa – Featherweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
TJ Brown 15-8-0 -275


Charles Rosa 14-6-0 +220


TJ Brown earned a UFC contract on Dana Whites “Contender Series” season 10 and has since has a mixed run in the UFC going 1-2 so far but earning a win in his most recent bout. Charles Rosa is a UFC veteran and has only faced high level competition for the past few years earning notable wins over Kyle Bochniak and Manny Bermudez. This is a short notice fight for Rosa as Brown’s original opponent ended up dropping out.

TJ Brown by Decision (TBD)

Brian Kelleher vs Kevin Croom – Bantamweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Brian Kelleher 23-12-0 TBD


Kevin Croom 21-13-0-1 NC TBD


Brian Kelleher has a mixed resume with some very notable wins and always shows up prepared. Meanwhile Kevin Croom has a very unique fighting style and mixes all aspects of MMA which is hard to prepare for, let alone on three days notice. This is a very even matchup with both fighters seemingly not having any significant advantage over the other in any department. Kelleher is a Bantamweight fighter and his bout was originally scheduled to be vs Saidyokub Kakhramonov at 135, Croom offered to step in on three days notice at featherweight (145 lbs) and Kelleher accepted. Unless Kelleher can get a finish in this fight one may question his ability to drag out a decision over Croom who has the reach advantage.

Brian Kelleher by Submission Round 2 (TBD)
