So, without further ado…

Matchup: Munir Lazez (-210) Vs. Angel Lusa (+160)

Munir Lazze Vs. Angel Lusa

Hitting the main card on ESPN should be an all-action affair between Mounir Lazze and Ange Lusa.

Even though Lusa Elizu Zaleski is stepping down on short notice for Dos Santos, money is coming to the Sanford MMA product to tighten this betting line. Lusa has a lot of experience training with high-level fighters and is well-rounded to boot, but I still doubt that the length and activity of the lasso will fill in the blanks that Lusa usually uses to reset. does.

Lusa also gets hurt a lot in his matches, as I think a close call on the scorecard could make the difference.

Matchup: Pat Sabatini (-540) vs. TJ Laramie (+360)

Pat Sabatini Vs. TJ laramie

In one of the best matchups outside the main event, Philadelphia’s Pat Sabatini takes on Canada’s TJ Laramie.

Laramie is a well-rounded and well-respected talent from the Canadian circuit, but I suspect Sabatini will be a tough question to come back from a long layoff. Sabatini is the more acclaimed submission grappler and wrestler, as I believe both of those skills will translate and serve him well in this matchup.

I don’t think Laramie will go away easily, so I’ll choose Sabatini to complete the decision.

Matchup: Myra Bueno Silva (-520) vs. Wuyuan (+350)

Myra Bueno Silva Vs. Wuhan

Despite the oddly inflated betting line on this card, I cannot disagree with Myra Bueno Silva being favored by Wu Yunnan.

Part of me has always been for Chinese athletes to do well in Western sports given their traditional treatment, I just have a hard time seeing Wu succeed here with his raw and disjointed style. Wu may give Silva a somewhat disappointing look early on, but I suspect the Brazilian’s mighty power and aggressive nature ate the Chinese fighter from both boxing and cleaning categories to win.

Matchup: Miguel Beza (-180) vs. Andre Fialho (+140)

Miguel Beza Vs. Andre Fialho

In one of the more interesting offers on this card, Miguel Beza meets Andre Fialho for a potential welterweight battle.

While Bezza may have had two tough losses in stock, he’s still a young talent who I believe has plenty of fun fights ahead of him on the UFC stage. The MMA Masters product doesn’t go beyond injury, but I still doubt he’s more durable than Fialho (who appears to be slow as a fight).

Fialho also appears to be struggling with both kicks and pressure grappling, as I would choose for Baija to bounce back using the many methods available to him.

Matchup: Ciao Borralho (-102) vs. Gadzhi Omargadzhiev (-125)

Caio Borralho Ghazi Omargadziev

The co-main event in Las Vegas will feature a middleweight matchup between two products from Dana White’s Contender series, Ciao Borralho and Gadzi Omargadziev.

I was not surprised in the slightest to see Omragadziev open as a favourite, especially given his wrestling background and undefeated record. That said, it seems that Omargadziev has a tendency to either spin inexplicably or shoot naked (without setup), as I see the Russian setting himself up for an emphatic knockout defeat down the line. Used to be.

I’m not sure if Boralho could get down on the flying knee he gunned for in his early debut in the Contenders Series, but I’d take a flight on a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt so he can survive Omargadziev’s early storms. Can you Victory.

Matchup: Vicente Luc (-180) Vs. Belal Muhammad (+140)

Vicente Luke Vs. Belal Muhammad

As stated in my in-depth breakdown, the main event on ESPN consists of a rematch between two fighters who are familiar with the cost of counters.

Although I’m reminding MMA fans in general that we rarely play the same fight between two fighters, I still suspect that the matchup dynamic – despite their improvement since their first meeting – is still quite The extent remains the same: if Vicente Luke can’t find an end in the first half of the fight, expect Belal Muhammad to constantly take over the steering wheel.

I think we’ll see a more competitive affair with a cautious start, but ultimately believe Luke’s front threats and counter hooks helped him fit the bill for a poorly stylistic matchup for Muhammad.
