Charles “InnerG” Johnson put together a record of six wins alongside one loss in the LFA before making the step up to the UFC.
In his debut, Charles Johnson would face a young and surging prospect in Mohammed Mokaev, who defeated him via unanimous decision.
With four knockouts and four submissions to his name, Johnson can really do it all and showed massive tenacity and durability in his fight vs Mokaev despite coming up short.
Zhalgas “Zhako” Zhumagulov fought the majority of his professional fights in his home country of Russia before joining the UFC where he has had very little luck.
So far Zhumagulov’s UFC record stands at a single win alongside four losses and despite his dangerous punching power, it's unlikely he will manage to pull off the upset in this fight.
Charles Johnson to win via KO/TKO/DQ in round three (+1600)
Former title challenger Jennifer Maia has not had very much luck after her loss to women’s Flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko.
Despite securing a decision win over Jessica “Evil” Eye in her following fight, she would lose the next two fights to Katlyn Chookagian and Manon Fiorot via unanimous decision.
On the other hand, Maryna Moroz has had resurgence in her mixed martial arts career, stacking up three wins in a row.
Since 2019, Moroz has defeated Sabina Mazo and Mayra Bueno Silva by unanimous decision, and more recently Mariya Agapova via arm triangle choke at UFC 272.
With a dominant win over Maia, Moroz may very well find herself a fight or two away from a title shot.
Maryna Moroz to win via unanimous decision (+120)
Overall Vince Morales has not had a good UFC run and this could very well be his last chance to make a statement before getting cut by the promotion.
He has so far put together a record of three wins and four losses in the UFC, including his last fight which he lost to Jonathan Martinez via unanimous decision.
Miles “Chapo” Johns made his way to the UFC with an LFA win over Adrian Yanez, before defeating Richie Santiago via unanimous decision on the contender series.
Since joining the UFC, Johns has put together two wins alongside two losses with the promotion and will be looking to get back to winning ways in this fight with a knockout over Morales.
Miles Johns to win via KO/TKO/DQ in round one (+450)
Ricky Turcios first shot at a UFC contract came all the way back in 2017 when he faced Boston Salmon who defeated him via unanimous decision on “Dana White’s Contender Series”.
A few years later, Turcios would find himself competing on “The Ultimate Fighter Season 29” where he defeated Daniel Argueta and Liudvik Shonlinian on the show before facing Brady Heistand in the finals where he won via split decision.
Turcios would face Aeimann Zahabi in his UFC debut but ultimately ended up losing the bout via unanimous decision mostly due to a lack of striking activity.
Kevin “Quicksand” Natividad put together an impressive record of four wins and one los in the LFA before making his UFC debut.
He would face Miles Johns in his first UFC fight and was defeated via uppercut KO in the third round before facing Batgerel Danaa in his next fight and losing by first round KO due to a counter left hook.
Natividad is yet to earn a victory in the UFC and the step up in level of competition has not gone in his favor at all so far.
Ricky Turcios to win via unanimous decision (+150)
Vanessa Demopoulos has spent most of her career fighting under the LFA banner and has not had an easy road to the UFC at all.
Her first opportunity at a UFC contract came in the form of a contender series fight vs Cory McKenna who defeated her by unanimous decision.
Lil monster’s UFC debut did not go her way either as she was defeated by JJ Aldrich via split decision.
However Demopoulos has bounced back into good form in her last two UFC fights where she defeated Silvna Gomez Juarez via first round armbar before beating Jinh Yu Frey via split decision.
Her opponent, Maria “Spider Girl” Oliveira had an almost identical journey, losing her contender series fight vs Marina Rodriguez via first round TKO, before losing her UFC debut to Tabatha Ricci via unanimous decision.
“Spider Girl” did however find her form once more in her most recent fight vs Gloria de Paula which she won via split decision.
Maria Oliveira to win via unanimous decision (+150)
Brady Heistand stacked up a few wins on the United States regional scene before auditioning for and securing a spot on “The Ultimate Fighter Season 29” where he made it all the way to the finals before losing a split decision to Ricky Turcios.
Heistand has multiple first round finishes to his name and will be looking to add another to his tally with a win over Garcia.
Fernie Garcia put together a string of wins over at LFA before making an appearance on Dana Whites Contender Series where he defeated Joshua Weems by TKO in the first round.
Garcia has won the vast majority of his fights by decision which speaks volumes about this fighters durability and patience.
Brady Heistand to win via KO/TKO/DQ in round one (+1000)
Natalia Silva is a highly skilled and talented Brazilian prospect who started off her career on the regions circuit before making her UFC debut vs Jasmin Jasudavisicus, who she defeated by unanimous decision.
She has multiple armbar submission wins in her career and one of her only career losses came at the hands of current top women’s flyweight contender Marina Rodriguez.
Tereza “Ronda” Bleda is so far undefeated in all fifteen of her fights across amateur and pro competition with seven submissions and three knockouts to her name.
Recently, Bleda earned herself a UFC contract with her unanimous decision win over Nayara Maia.
Natalia Silva to win via unanimous decision (+180)
