UFC Utica Prelim Predictions

UFC Utica Prelim Predictions

UFC Fight Pass Prelims;

Jarred Brooks vs Jose Torres:

This is the UFC debut of TITAN FC’s Champ-Champ Jose Torres. I see Torres being too much for Brooks. Torres was the best flyweight not in the UFC; Friday night that changes. ‘Shorty’ will be too much, he’s striking, his wrestling and his fight I.Q. are far better. I got Torres 3rd round TKO!

Johnny Eduardo vs Nathaniel Wood:

I’ve been a Nathaniel Wood fan for a long time, it’s great to finally see him in the UFC. Eduardo is a respectable opponent, but this is Wood’s fight. Nathaniel Wood will win in the second round by TKO.

Jessica Aguilar vs Jodie Esquibel:

Wen Jessica Aguilar was in the WSOF, she was considered one the best women fighters in the world. Her UFC run has been plagued by inactivity and injures over the past two years. She has lost 2 straight, but I think that ends here. Aguilar gets the win, by decision.

Fox Sports 1 Prelims;

Desmond green vs Gleison Tibau:

Tibau has been in this game for what feels like forever. These men are a combined 0-5 in their last five fights, (0-3 Tibau, 0-2 Green.) l think this is the fight were age finally catches Tibau, my pick is Green by decision in a somewhat boring fight.

Belal Muhammad vs Chance Rencountre:

I expect this to be the best fight on the prelims. Unlike the previous matchup; these men are a combined 7-0(4 for Chance, 3 Belal.) I think this fight will be a barn burner, it’s hard to pick a winner here. I’m going to go with the more UFC experience here, Belal Muhammad by decision in an exciting 3-round affair.

Nik Lentz vs David Teymur:

This fight has the potential to be as exciting as the last; the only exception is that Nik Lentz could try to grapple his way to a win. I have faith that David Teymur will still win. He is riding a 7-fight win streak, I think he keeps it going here. Using get-ups, pressure and his world class striking. David Teymur wins by decision.

Sijara Eubanks vs Lauren Murphy:

I am beyond stoked for Sijara is able to fight again. She was the most exciting prospect on the TUF season 26. This feels like leading a lamb to slaughter, Lauren Murphy isn’t ready for this. The storm Eubanks brings will to too much for Lauren. Sijara Eubanks wins by 1st round TKO.
