Dan Ige (-110) vs. Chan Sung Jung (-110)

To go the distance? Yes/No (-118/-108)

Drew’s Pick: Ige

This is a toss-up in the odds for good reason. I see this being a war and a very close fight. Taking Ige was a close choice, but he has been a bit more active, so I am riding with “50k” Ige.

Abraham’s Pick: Yes

Dan Ige and Chan Sung Jung are two of the toughest featherweights in the UFC. Both men have shown exceptional durability inside the cage and I expect this one to be no different. They will make fireworks and put on a show for five full rounds. I expect them to fight to the final bell with both chins being tested but neither giving in.

Sean’s Pick: Chan Sung Jung

I think many are sleeping on The Korean Zombie in this fight. Jung recently moved to Team Fight Ready in AZ and is currently training with world-class striking coach Eddie Cha and Santino DiFranco. This is a new level of training for Jung, and I think the work he has put in will show. Ige got a big win in his last fight but he’s never been in the octagon with a vet like Jung. I expect this fight to go the distance with The Korean Zombie showing off some new techniques.

Aleksei Oleinik (+188) vs. Serghei Spivac (-230)

To go the distance? Yes/No (+360/-550)

Drew’s Pick: Spivac

This is the classic veteran vs rising-star matchup that, more times than not, leaves the grizzled vet with another notch on the loss column. Although Oleinik is one of the most experienced fighters in the game, Spivac’s speed and strength should be enough to outdo him.

Abraham’s Pick: Serghei Spivac

Aleksei Oleinik is a legendary heavyweight who can submit any other heavyweight on the planet. Still, at 43 years old, his chin can’t take the same level of punishment it used to. Spivac is a finisher who can finish an opponent standing or on the ground. Oleinik wants this fight on the ground but Spivac won’t let that happen because he’ll finish this fight on the feet before any grappling takes place.

Sean’s Pick: No

Oleinik has had many finishes in his long-tenured career. Spivac is coming off a first-round win by TKO. I expect Spivac to take risk necessary to make Oleinik quit, having gone 3-2 in UFC so far. However, he’ll have to be wary of Oleinik's ground experience, as his grappling skills alone have gotten him the majority of UFC wins.

Marlon Vera (-260) vs. Davey Grant (+194)

To go the distance? Yes/No (-118/-108)

Drew’s Pick: Grant

My money-making pick of the night is Grant. At these odds, I am hammering it to make up some great value. These two have fought before with Grant coming out on top and he is already riding a 3-fight win streak, so I think he will be too quick and will bring the heat early.

Abraham’s Pick: Marlon Vera

Davey Grant has the momentum coming off a thunderous knockout against Jonathan Martinez. Meanwhile, Marlon Vera was recently defeated by Jose Aldo in an awful performance by “Chito.” Even though he lost the fight, Vera did manage to hang in with one of the best bantamweights in the UFC, something that Grant has never done. I expect Vera to put on a convincing performance to get back on track.

Sean’s Pick: Grant

Davey Grant is coming into this fight with two KO finishes in a row. Marlon Vera lost to Aldo in one of his worst outings to date but has proven to be a capable finisher in the past. I think Grant’s boxing has got to be superior at this point, while Vera’s confidence has been shaken by his recent performances. Grant by KO in the 2nd round adds value to any parlay and is my lock of the night!

Julian Erosa (+112) vs. Seung Woo Choi (-142)

Drew’s Pick: Erosa

I love Erosa in this fight, especially at these odds. He is riding the wave of a 3-fight win streak and has rebounded ever since coming back to the UFC last year. I believe that he has a chip on his shoulder and wants to prove his worth in the organization.

Abraham’s Pick: Julian Erosa

There are a lot of factors in this fight. For Erosa to pull off the upset, he has to get this fight to the ground. He has a good submission game and isn’t going to be too keen on standing in front of Choi for long. If he doesn’t force the takedown then he’ll be in a lot of trouble against the Muay Thai specialist. Choi needs to keep this fight standing, but that's easier said than done.

Sean’s Pick - Woo Choi

This is not going to be an easy test for either competitor. Woo Choi gained fan's attention when he defeated Zalal, the favorite to win, by decision. Erosa is a tough veteran who still has a lot to prove. As long as Woo Choi keeps his distance, he should be able to pick apart Erosa. Julian Erosa just came off a crazy 1st round KO, but unless he can make this fight ugly, close the distance, and score takedowns, expect Woo Choi to take the decision.

Dhiego Lima (-182) vs. Matt Brown (+142)

Drew’s Pick: Lima

For the first time since 2018, Lima is coming off of a loss. Brown, meanwhile, is coming off of two losses and has dropped five of his past seven. Lima should be able to bounce back and take advantage of the fact that Brown cannot seem to get anything going.

Abraham’s Pick: Dhiego Lima

If this fight was a decade ago, the conversation would be completely different--but it’s not a decade ago. It’s 2021 and I have to side with the younger Lima to come out on top. He will apply pressure, gain some easy takedowns, and control Brown on the ground to come out with the win against the gritty veteran.

Sean’s Pick: Lima

Matt Brown is aiming to be the first fighter to beat both Lima brothers. This is a tough challenge for him at this point. If coming off two losses weren’t enough to make him reassess his career, this one will. Dhiego Lima has more durability and has proven that he’s not easy to put away. As long as he uses his grappling efficiently, he shouldn’t have much trouble with Matt Brown. I see him getting a late finish by submission as well.
