Featured Prelim

Marc Andre Barriault: Catchweight Bout The odds are set by DraftKings Sportsbook. DraftKings Sportsbook provides the following odds:

Jordan “The Beverly Hills Ninja” Wright TALE OF THE TAPE Marc Andre “Powerbar” Barriault 30 Age 32 6’2″ / 188cm Height 6’1″ / 185cm 77.0″ / 196cm Reach 73.0″ / 185cm United States Nation Canada Dynamix MMA Team Pautenod Kung Fu – Quebec City 12-2-0-1NC Record 13-5-0-1NC +155 BET NOW

Odds -180 BET NOW

Jordan Wright, AKA “The Beverly Hills Ninja” is notorious for being highly active in the first round and always looking for the early knockout. Eleven of his 12 wins came in the first round. This prospect is a bright future, despite going 2-2 in UFC so far. Marc Andre Barriault enters the bout having just suffered a defeat. He was defeated in round one of the fight against Chidi Njokuani two months back. It’s not surprising that he is returning so quickly after this devastating defeat. Barriault has a reputation for being a slow fighter. Wright, however, is a fast starter. It will be interesting to see if Barriault can sustain the same damage that he did two months ago.

Our Pick

Jordan Wright via KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+650)

Dwight Grant vs Sergey Khandozhko – Welterweight Division

Dwight “The Body Snatcher” Grant TALE OF THE TAPE Sergey “Honda” Khandozhko 37 Age 29 6’1″ / 185cm Height 6’1″ / 185cm 76.5″ / 194cm Reach 74.0″ / 188cm United States Nation Russia American Kickboxing Academy Team Fight Club No. 1 11-4-0 Record 27-6-1 +100 BET NOW

Odds -120 BET NOW

Dwight Grant enters this fight coming off a split decision loss to Francisco Trinaldo. Sergey Khandozhko also lost his last fight via unanimous decision back in 2019 where he faced Rustam Khabilov. Khandozhko may have more fights, but Grant is more active than him and has seen better opponents throughout his career. Khandozhko will likely be more active than Grant, landing more punches to win the fight.

Our Pick

Sergey Khandozhko via judges decision (+175)

Tyson Pedro vs Ike Villanueva – Light Heavyweight Division

Tyson Pedro TALE OF THE TAPE Ike “Hurricane” Villanueva 30 Age 38 6’3″ / 191cm Height 6’1″ / 185cm 79.0″ / 201cm Reach 73.0″ / 185cm Australia Nation United states Lions High Performance Center Team 4oz. Fight Club 7-3-0 Record 18-13-0 -630 BET NOW

Odds +450 BET NOW

Tyson Pedro is finally injury free and will be eager to get back in the win column after four years of inactivity due to injuries. Ike Villanueva on the other hand has been very active recently and made three octagon appearances in 2021 alone. The fight is currently a losing two-fighter battle and both fighters need to win. Villanueva, a brawler known for throwing a lot of hard strikes and juggling from the start to the finish, is well-known while Pedro is a more grappling-based fighter who can do submissions from any position. Expect a fast finish with both fighters.

Our Pick

Tyson Pedro via submission in round 1 (+240)

Qileng Aori vs Cameron Else – Bantamweight Division

Aoriqileng “The Mongolian Murderer” TALE OF THE TAPE Cameron “Camchida” Else 28 Age 30 5’7″ / 170cm Height 5’9″ / 175cm 69.3″ / 176cm Reach 71.0″ / 180cm China Nation England Xin-Du Martial Arts Club Team Jackson Wink MMA 18-9-0 Record 10-5-0 -235 BET NOW

Odds +190 BET NOW

Cameron Else entered the UFC on a six fight win streak before making his promotional debut back in 2020 where he lost to a formidable opponent in Kyler Phillips by second round technical knockout. He was able to strike well early in that fight, but was then caught with his elbows and beaten by Kyler Phillips in round 2. Qigong also enjoyed a successful run in regional MMA before joining UFC. He is currently losing two of his fights. Each fighter has a natural tendency to strike early, so we might see heavy striking in round one. Else has a greater striking power output than Qileng Aori, so we could see a heavy fighting match in round 1.

Our Pick

Qileng Aori via KO/TKO/DQ in round 1 (+250)

Preston Parsons vs Evan Elder – Welterweight Division

Preston “Pressure” Parsons TALE OF THE TAPE Evan “The Phenom” Elder 26 Age 25 5’11” / 180cm Height 5’9″ / 175cm 72.0″ / 183cm Reach 71.0″ / 180cm United States Nation United States Elevate MMA Team Sanford MMA 9-3-0 Record 7-0-0 TBA BET NOW


Super short notice fight here as Evan Elder has agreed to step in to replace Louis Cosce after he tested positive for Covid-19. Despite the short notice, Elder will not be entirely unprepared as he was already in training camp at Sanford MMA getting ready for his FAC 13 bout vs Cody Pfister. Preston Parsons entered the UFC with a winning streak of four fights before being defeated by Daniel Rodriguez in round one. Parsons has multiple first round submission wins on his record so he will likely be searching for an early submission while Elder will look for the early knockout. It should be a fascinating first round.

Our Pick

Preston Parsons via submission in round 1 (TBA)

Marcin Prachnio vs Philipe Lins – Light Heavyweight Division

Marcin Prachnio TALE OF THE TAPE Philipe “Monstro” Lins 33 Age 36 6’3″ / 191cm Height 6’2″ / 188cm 74.0″ / 188cm Reach 78.0″ / 198cm Poland Nation Brazil Tatsujin Dojo Deventer Team American Top Team 15-5-0 Record 14-5-0 -120 BET NOW

Odds +100 BET NOW

Marcin Prachnio is currently on a two fight winning streak in the UFC, most recently bagging a win via body kick in round two over Ike Villanueva. Philipe Lins, his opponent in the UFC, has suffered a tough run. He lost his first fight to Andre Arlovski and then fell to Tanner Boser via a KO. Philipe will fight for the UFC at lightweight heavyweight. This is his first UFC bout. He will need to lose weight. It is a traditional striker vs. grappler matchup. This will be a difficult decision.

Our Pick

Marcin Prachnio via judges decision (+400)

Dean Barry vs Mike Jackson – Welterweight Division

Dean “The Sniper” Barry TALE OF THE TAPE Mike “The Truth” Jackson 29 Age 37 5’10” / 178cm Height 6’2″ / 188cm 71.0″ / 180cm Reach 74.0″ / 188cm Ireland Nation United States Team Ryano MMA Team 4oz. Fight Club 4-1-0 Record 0-1-0-1NC -1125 BET NOW
