You may have a look at the Saturday’s UFC on FOX 28 at Orlando and feel — like so many fans — that the current quality of UFC cards has been decreasing. There’s not much starpower at the evening.
But in terms of aggressive struggles that’ll have actual divisional effect, there’s a lot to appreciate here. Josh Emmett came from nowhere to knock out longtime shirt 3 featherweight Ricardo Lamas on overdue notice — and he’s ranked No. 4. He will have to prove it was not a fluke when he meets Jeremy Stephens, one of the most experienced dudes in the division.
From the co-main, we’ve also got Jessica Andrade, the No. 2 contender at strawweight, at a pivotal clash with the 10-1 Tecia Torres. The winner of the might easily be slotted in to face the winner of the Namajunas-Jedrzejczyk title rematch in a month or two.
Advertisement Who else? Knockout artist Mike Perry is seeking to revive himself as a hot divisional prospect, and he’ll lock horns with headhunter Max Griffin within an expected crackerjack. You also don’t want to overlook a light heavyweight tilt between No. 5 Ovince St. Preux and No. 8 Ilir Latifi — the winner would continue to keep their title on a brief list of title contenders.
So don’t write off this card — especially when there’s cash to be made in the sportsbooks. Let’s take a look at the UFC chances at BookMaker.eu and make some picks.
