Darrick Minner has had a mixed bag of results so far in the UFC, winning his first two fights with the promotion consecutively before ending up on his current two fight losing streak.

He made quick work of T.J. Laramie in his UFC debut when he submitted his opponent with a guillotine choke in the opening round of the fight.

Following his victorious debut, Minner would then go on to defeat UFC veteran Charles Rosa by unanimous decision.

Darren Elkins would be the first UFC fighter to hand Minner a loss, and he did so by ground and pound during the second round of their fight.

In his most recent UFC outing, Minner lost a hard fought unanimous decision to Jiu Jitsu ace, Ryan Hall.

Mixed martial arts veteran Shayilan Nuerdanbieke had a different start to his UFC career as he ended up losing his much anticipated UFC debut to Joshua Culibao via unanimous decision.

Despite the initial defeat, the ever-resilient Shayilan would bounce back with two unanimous decision wins in a row over formidable opponents in Sean Soriano and TJ Brown Consecutively.

Our Picks

  • Shayilan Nuerdanbieke to win via unanimous decision (+300)

  • Shayilan Nuerdanbieke to win via decision (+250)

  • Fight to go the distance: Yes (+150)

Miranda Maverick has won the majority of her UFC fights so far, putting together a record of three wins alongside two losses in the world's top mixed martial arts promotion.

After a successful run at Invicta FC, Maverick started off her UFC career with two wins in a row, with the first one coming by way of first round doctor's stoppage due to a cut ,in her fight vs Liana Jojua.

Maverick followed up her debut win with another victory, this time via unanimous decision in her bout vs submission specialist Gillian Robertson.

Following that win, Maverick would find herself on the first ever losing streak of her career after suffering a split decision loss vs Maycee Barber, followed by a unanimous decision defeat in her fight vs Erin Blanchfeild.

In her most recent UFC fight, Miranda Maverick got back to her winning ways with a dominant rear-naked choke victory over Sabina Mazo.

Shanna “The Shanimal” Young had quite a rocky start to her UFC career, with a unanimous decision loss to Macy Chiasson in her promotional debut, followed by a second round ground and pound loss to Stephanie Egger.

Young finally earned her first UFC win in her most recent fight vs Gina Mazany, who she finished by technical knockout in round two.

This will not be the first time Maverick and Young have faced off against each other in the mixed martial arts scene, in 2019 Maverick defeated Young at “Invicta FC: Phoenix series 2” via rear-naked choke submission in the opening round.

Bookmakers have Maverick as a heavy favorite at -600 going into the rematch vs the +450 underdog Shanna Young, and we predict a repeat of the original result.

Our Picks

  • Miranda Maverick to win via submission in round one (+250)

  • Miranda Maverick to win via submission (+130)

  • Exact Method of Victory: Submission (+120)

  • Fight to end in the first round (+214)

Mario Bautista started off his UFC career with a first round armbar submission loss to current top 5 UFC bantamweight contender Cory Sandhagen.

Following the debut loss, Bautista earned a unanimous decision victory over Jin Soo Son, before earning a spectacular first round flying knee finish over Miles Johns in the first round of their fight at UFC 247.

In the second half of his UFC career, Bautista would repeat the trend of losing a fight and following it up with a pair of wins.

His next loss would come by way of second round knockout to Trevin Jones at UFC 259, before earning a unanimous decision victory over Jay Perrin and a rear naked choke win over UFC veteran Brian Kelleher.

Mario Bautista has all the momentum on his side going into this fight and we are backing him to earn a first round submission over Benito Lopez.

UFC newcomer Tamires Vidal enters the opening bout of the night off the back of a five fight win streak, with her only career loss coming by way of unanimous decision to current UFC women’s bantamweight contender.

Vidal started off her career in her home country of Brazil where she fought the vast majority of her fights before making the move to the United States to compete in the LFA where she defeated her opponent via heel hook submission in round two of the fight.

Fighting out of Hong Kong, Ramona Pascual has had a rollercoaster ride of a career so far, but did manage to put together three wins in a row before catching the eye of the UFC matchmakers.

Pascual is a first round finisher at heart, and has earned every single one of her prod MMA wins via finish.

Despite her tenacity, Ramona Pascual has had no luck in the UFC so far, losing both of her fights via unanimous decision to Josiance Nunes and Joselyne Edwards consecutively.

Our Picks

  • Tamires Vidal to win via submission in round two (+1400)

  • Tamires Vidal to win via submission (+450)
