Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Miles Johns 12-1-0 -190


John Castaneda 18-5-0 +160


Miles Johns put one hell of a show in his last UFC outing when he battered a resilient Anderson Dos Santos for every minute of the fight before finishing him with a spectacular overhand right in the third round. Miles says he’s “Tired of being slept on” and will surely be looking to make a huge statement once again in this fight. John Castaneda’s most notable win is his most recent one, where he knocked out UFC veteran Eddie Wineland in the first round of their fight.

Our Pick

Miles Johns by KO/TKO/DQ in round 2 (+1000)

Hakeem Dawodu vs Mike Trizano Featherweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Hakeem Dawodu 12-2-1 -165


Mike Trizano 10-1-0 +145


While “Mean” Hakeem Dawodu enters this bout coming off a loss, it would be unwise to count him out of this one considering the level of opponents he’s comfortably beaten in the past. Prior to his recent loss, he was on a 5 fight winning streak, having beaten high level opponents such as Kyle Bochniak, Julio Arce and Zubaira Tukhugov. Mike Trizano became “The Ultimate Fighter” when he beat Joe Gianetti back in 2018 in the finale of the show’s 27th season. Since then he has gone 2-1 in the UFC and there is no doubt that Dawodu will be his toughest test to date.

Our Pick

Hakeem Dawodu via decision (+110)

Chidi Njokuani vs Marc-Andre Barriault Middleweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Chidi Njoukuani 20-7-0-1NC +105


Marc-Andre Barriault 13-4-0-1NC -125


Chidi Njoukani makes his UFC debut this Saturday after securing an impressive KO win over Mario Sousa on Dana White’s contender series. He’s beaten some decent opposition on his way to the UFC but this will be his toughest test to date for sure. Marc-Andre Barriault now enters the UFC’s octagon for the 7th time and has had his ups and downs so far against a variety of opponents but has solid skills overall.

Our Pick

Chidi Njoukuani by KO/TKO/DQ in round 3 (+1300)

Alexis Davis vs Julija Stoliarenko Women’s Bantamweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Alexis Davis 20-11-0 -250


Julija Stoliarenko 9-6-1 +200


Alexis Davis’s mixed record comes due to the fact that she has always faced high-level competition through her and even fought Ronda Rousey for the women’s bantamweight championship back in 2014. She is a very solid fighter and most of her losses have come against elite-level competition. While she had a fantastic run on the regional scene, Julija Stoliarenko has had no luck so far in the UFC and is currently on a two-fight losing streak.

Our Pick

Alexis Davis via decision (-105)

Jailton Almeida vs Danilo Marques Light Heavyweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Jailton Almeida 14-2-0 -450


Danilo Marques 11-3-0 +340


Danilo Marques showed a lack of cardio in the later rounds of his most recent UFC fight vs Kennedy Nzechukwu and ended up losing the bout via standing TKO in round 3. Jailton Almeida is coming off a big win on the contender series where he defeated Nasrudin Nasrudinov via rear-naked choke in round 2. Both fighters are fantastic grapplers and this is a very close matchup.

Our Pick

Jailton Almeida by submission in round 2 (+650)

Jason Witt vs Philip Rowe Welterweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Jason Witt 19-7-0 +105


Philip Rowe 8-3-0 -125


Jason Witt is a solid fighter who has had mixed results in the UFC.

So far Witt has won two and lost two, his most recent bout ending in a majority decision win over Bryan Barberena. Philip Rowe has also had his ups and downs in the UFC so far having won one and lost one, however, he enters this fight with a ridiculous 10½” reach advantage which should cause some major problems for Witt in the striking department.

Our Pick

Philip Rowe by KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+300)

Malcolm Gordon vs Denys Bondar Flyweight Division

Fighter Record (W/L/D) Odds
Malcolm Gordon 13-5-0 +230


Denys Bondar 16-3-0 -290


Denys Bondar enters the UFC with a 14 fight winning streak and is super dangerous on the ground having won 11 fights via submission. Malcolm Gordon also has solid grappling skills however he has won one fight and lost two so far in the UFC. Gordon’s most recent UFC fight resulted in a win over the reigning Flyweight champion’s brother, Francisco Figueiredo.

Our Pick

Denys Bondar by submission in round 1 (+380)
