Ben Saunders vs. Alan Jouban

This is a pretty interesting fight, as both fighters need a win. With Saunders going 1-2 since 2016 and Jouban losing his last two, it seems both fighters are competing for relevance in the Welterweight division. Jouban has undoubtedly faced tougher competition with wins over Belal Muhammad and Mike Perry and losses to Gunnar Nelson and Niko Price. That said, MMA fans know to never count out the longtime Ultimate Fighter contender Ben Saunders. I think Jouban stays on the outside and outpoints Saunders here.

My Pick: Jouban via Unanimous Decision

Angela Hill vs Maryna Moroz

Angela Hill’s record in the UFC doesn’t exactly strike you as impressive until you see who she has shared the Octogan with. Three of her four losses come from Tecia Torres (#5), Jessica Andrade (#2), and current Champion, Rose Namajunes. Yeah, I know, tough luck. Moroz (#14) has some impressive wins over Joanne Calderwood (#13) and Danielle Taylor. Her losses come from former title contender Valerie Letourneau and former Champion, Carla Esparza. This is definitely an interesting fight as both fighters are looking for a top ten opponent pending a victory.

My Pick: Angela Hill via submission (RNC)

Mike Perry vs. Max Griffin

Mike Perry has a highlight reel of impressive knockouts but his cardio seems to be the chink in his armor. Perry acknowledged this following his last bout. Looking at Perry in the build up to this fight, he looks much leaner which often leads to more stamina in later rounds. Griffin is a fairly unknown fighter in the UFC going 1-2. Despite his record, a win in his opponent’s home turf could put him on the map.

My Pick: Mike Perry via KO/TKO (Round 2)

Ovince Saint Preux (#5) vs. Ilir Latifi (#8)

OSP has a very impressive UFC record with losses only to top competition. He is on a three fight winning streak with a stunning head kick knockout and a two extremely rare Von Flue chokes. Ilir Latifi has won three of his last four in the UFC. His only loss comes from former UFC Light Heavyweight title contender and new Bellator champion, Ryan Bader. This is definitely a fight to watch for both the purists and casual fans.

My Pick: Ovince Saint Preux via Split Decision

Jessica Andrade (#2) vs. Tecia Torres (#5)

This fighter is a banger! Both fighters have looked sensational lately. Andrade has won 4 of her last 5 with her only loss coming from #1 Strawweight contender and former longtime Champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Tecia Torres has looked equally impressive claiming victory in six of seven UFC bouts. Her only loss is from current Strawweight Champion, Rose Namajunes. This is a fight I’m shocked that isn’t on a Pay-per-view but I’m not complaining.

My Pick: Andrade via Unanimous Decision

Josh Emmett (#4) vs. Jeremy Stephens (#8)

I cannot possibly be the only fan that thinks Josh Emmett is a legitimate #4 in the division after defeating Ricardo Lamas, a fight where Emmett missed weight. Emmett has proved to be dangerous going winning four of five in the UFC. While his record is impressive, the UFC seems to be selling him as a knockout artist while his only knockout comes from his last fight. All previous fights have ended in a decision. Jeremy Stephens is the last of a dying breed. He shows up to fight and put on a show for the fans. Stephens, who fought just five weeks ago, has won his last two in convincing fashion.

My Pick: Jeremy Stephens via KO/TKO (Round 4)
