Jordan Wright, AKA “The Beverly Hills Ninja” is notorious for being highly active in the first round and always looking for the early knockout. He has finished eleven of his twelve wins in round one. Despite going 2-2 so far in the UFC the future looks bright for this prospect. Marc Andre Barriault also enters this bout coming off a loss. Just two months ago he was knocked out in the first round of his fight vs Chidi Njokuani and it’s a bit of a surprise to see him back so soon after such a devastating loss. Barriault is known to be a slow starter while Wright is the complete opposite, and having been knocked out so recently in his last fight, the big question will be whether or not Barriault can endure damage like he used to.

Our Pick

Jordan Wright via KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+650)

Dwight Grant vs Sergey Khandozhko – Welterweight Division

Dwight “The Body Snatcher” Grant TALE OF THE TAPE Sergey “Honda” Khandozhko

Dwight Grant enters this fight coming off a split decision loss to Francisco Trinaldo. Sergey Khandozhko also lost his last fight via unanimous decision back in 2019 where he faced Rustam Khabilov. While Khandozhko has more fights under his belt, Grant has been a lot more active and has faced better opposition throughout his career. Expect Khandozhko to be the busier fighter landing more shots than his opponent, while Grant will be looking to land a power punch to get a finish.

Our Pick

Sergey Khandozhko via judges decision (+175)

Tyson Pedro vs Ike Villanueva – Light Heavyweight Division

Tyson Pedro TALE OF THE TAPE Ike “Hurricane” Villanueva
30 Age 38

Tyson Pedro is finally injury free and will be eager to get back in the win column after four years of inactivity due to injuries. Ike Villanueva on the other hand has been very active recently and made three octagon appearances in 2021 alone. Both fighters are currently on a two fight losing streak and desperately need to get a win. Villanueva is known to be a brawler who throws a high volume of heavy strikes from start to finish, while Pedro is more of a grappling based fighter that can pull off a submission from anywhere. With both fighters hungry for a win, expect an early finish in this fight.

Our Pick

Tyson Pedro via submission in round 1 (+240)

Qileng Aori vs Cameron Else – Bantamweight Division

Aoriqileng “The Mongolian Murderer” TALE OF THE TAPE Cameron “Camchida” Else

Cameron Else entered the UFC on a six fight win streak before making his promotional debut back in 2020 where he lost to a formidable opponent in Kyler Phillips by second round technical knockout. In that fight he did well in the striking department early on in the fight before getting caught and finished on the ground with elbows. Qigong Aori also had a good run on the regional MMA scene before joining the UFC and is currently on a two fight losing streak in the promotion. Both fighters have a tendency to get things going early and we could see a heavy striking battle in the opening round. While Else will have more striking output, the power advantage will undoubtedly be on Qileng Aori’s side.

Our Pick

Qileng Aori via KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+250)

Preston Parsons vs Evan Elder – Welterweight Division

Preston “Pressure” Parsons TALE OF THE TAPE Evan “The Phenom” Elder

Super short notice fight here as Evan Elder has agreed to step in to replace Louis Cosce after he tested positive for Covid-19. Despite the short notice, Elder will not be entirely unprepared as he was already in training camp at Sanford MMA getting ready for his FAC 13 bout vs Cody Pfister. Preston Parsons came into the UFC on a four fight winning streak before a first round KO loss to Daniel Rodriguez in his debut. With multiple first round submission finishes on his resume, Parsons will undoubtedly look for an early submission, while Elder will be looking for the early knockout. This should make for a very interesting first round.

Our Pick

Preston Parsons via submission in round 1 (TBA)

Marcin Prachnio vs Philipe Lins – Light Heavyweight Division

Marcin Prachnio TALE OF THE TAPE Philipe “Monstro” Lins
33 Age 36

Marcin Prachnio is currently on a two fight winning streak in the UFC, most recently bagging a win via body kick in round two over Ike Villanueva. His opponent, Philipe Lins has had a difficult UFC run so far, losing his debut via decision to former champion Andre Arlovski, followed by a first round KO loss to Tanner boser. This will be Philipe’s first UFC fight at light heavyweight, which means that he will have to cut weight, something he hasnt had to worry about in his first two bouts with the promotion. This is a classic striker vs grappler matchup, with both fighters skilled in every aspect of MMA and will likely turn out to be a hard fought decision.

Our Pick

Marcin Prachnio via judges decision (+400)

Dean Barry vs Mike Jackson – Welterweight Division

Dean “The Sniper” Barry TALE OF THE TAPE Mike “The Truth” Jackson
29 Age 37

Mike Jackson is an MMA journalist and fighter, mostly known for his UFC unanimous decision win over the renowned pro wrestler CM Punk, which was later overturned to a no contest due to a positive marijuana test on the night of the fight. In his 2016 UFC debut, Mike Jackson faced Mickey Gall, another debutant who would go on to submit Jackson in the first round before doing the same to CM Punk later that same year. Dean “The Sniper” Barry is a promising up and coming talent from Ireland who has done well on the regional scene in the leadup to his UFC debut, finishing all his wins in the first round by knockout in the first round.

Our Pick

Dean Barry via KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+140)
