While not having the smoothest of runs within the promotion so far, both fighters in this matchup are coming off dominant decision wins in the UFC. Despite his poor MMA records, Zarrukh Adashev has been a skilled fighter. He lost two fights to Sumudaerji, who beat Adashev via decision. Adashev also had an impressive performance, where he knocked Ryan Benoit down with leg kicks. This resulted in Adashev winning unanimously. Ode Osbourne had similar fights in the past. After being knocked down by Manel Kape (former Rizin champion), he went on to beat CJ Vergara with an unanimous decision. Ode Osbourne will have the advantage of reaching more people because he is much older than his opponent in this matchup. Osbourne is more experienced than his opponent and should win this round.

Niklas Stolze vs Benoit Saint-Denis Lightweight Division
Niklas “Green Mask” Stolze TALE OF THE TAPE Benoit “God Of War” Saint-Denis 29 Age 26 6’1″ (185cm) Height 5’11” (180cm) 75.0″ (191cm) Reach 73.0″ (185cm) Germany Nation France La Onda Fight Club Team Woirin Team Elite 12-5-0 Record 8-1-0-1NC 2 Losses Current Streak 1 Loss +140 BET NOW
Odds -160 BET NOW
Both of these European MMA fighters have not yet bagged a win in the UFC and will both be hungry to end their losing streaks. Stolze, who is only 25 years old, has had many losses in his long career. He was also knocked out in his last loss by Jared Gooden, who scored a right cross in round one. Stolze is unfortunate that all his wins with Benoit Saint-Denis ended in a final, and it’s clear that the God Of War won’t want to let the fight go to the judges. Saint Denis will be the one to beat as Stolze is a kickboxer. Both fighters are looking to win and Saint Denis will have the grappling advantage. If Saint-Denis is able to get an early takedown, it might be worth watching.
Benoit Saint-Denis by submission in round 1 (+400)

Andreas Michailidis, on the other hand, has had a disappointing run in UFC. He is currently at 1-2. His most recent loss came in the form of a vicious flying knee knockout by Alex Pereira, a former kickboxing world champion who is known for knocking out current middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in a kickboxing match back in 2016.

Erin Blanchfield vs JJ Aldrich – Women’s Flyweight Division
Erin “Cold Blooded” Blanchfield TALE OF THE TAPE JJ Aldrich 23 Age 29 5’4″ (163cm) Height 5’5″ (165cm) 68.0″ (173cm) Reach 67.5″ (171cm) United States Nation United States Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Team Freedom Fighters / 303 Training Center 8-1-0 Record 11-4-0 5 Wins Current Streak 3 Wins -525 BET NOW
Odds +385 BET NOW
Erin “Cold Blooded” Blanchfield is the biggest favorite on this card and that is because she is currently on a five fight winning streak and has defeated some top level competition, including most recently Miranda Maverick by unanimous decision at UFC 269. Blanchfield’s takedown skills are well-known, but her opponent JJ ALDRICH is just as good in defending them. Aldrich is also a top fighter in her division, currently with a winning streak of three fights. Both fighters have the ability to strike, but Blanchfield is more skilled when it comes down to grappling. Blanchfield will likely try to repeat her recent victory over Miranda Maverick, where she won all three rounds on the ground.
