The curtain jerker comes in the Lightweight division, as Charlie ‘The American Badboy’ Ontiveros takes on Steve ‘Mean Machine’ Garcia. Seeking his first UFC victory, Ontiveros returns to the octagon for the first time since losing to Kevin Holland in his UFC debut. Prior to the loss, the American Badboy had won two straight via knockout. Meanwhile, Garcia too seeks his first UFC victory. The former Bellator competitor will have to shake off rust though, as he has not competed in eighteen months. Prior to the layoff, Garcia had won four in a row.
After a scary UFC debut that saw Charlie Ontiveros slammed on his neck and a six-month suspension from a failed test, the American Badboy will seek to put the past behind him. Ontiveros is a pure striker, who has fought the majority of his fights at Welterweight. Standing at 6’2, Ontiveros will hold height and reach advantages over most Lightweights. Steve Garcia is no slouch in the size department either, standing at 6’0 tall. Garcia too is a striker, who is rangy and versatile. With legitimate power, Garcia recorded eight of his eleven wins via knockout.
As for a prediction, I have Garcia. While Ontiveros will hold decent height and reach advantages, he will be outgunned on the feet. From the tape I’ve seen, Ontiveros not only is a low output striker, but he holds his hands down low. Also, his thin frame at Lightweight will open him up to being hurt with body shots. In the end, Garcia will eventually find the mark and knockout Ontiveros.
