We got ourselves an exciting fight in the Lightweight division, as Mason ‘The Dragon’ Jones takes on UFC newcomer David Onama. Originally, Mason Jones was set to fight Alan Patrick in a rematch of a fight that ended in a no contest due to an accidental eye poke. However, Patrick fell out of the bout and in stepped Onama on short notice. The first Ugandan fighter to ever fight in the UFC, Onama will put his undefeated record on the line. With all eight wins coming via stoppage, Onama presents a tougher challenge for Jones.
If Alan Patrick had stayed in this fight, it wouldn’t have been pretty. Mason Jones is a two-division Cage Warriors Champion and an excellent fighter. With a well rounded skill set, Jones has shown to be a high output striker who mixes in timely takedowns. While his UFC tenure has gotten off to a less than thrilling start, Jones remains a prospect to watch in the Lightweight division. This fight won’t be easy though, as David Onama looks octagon ready. From the tape I’ve seen, Onama is a powerful striker who has an excellent grasp in the grappling department. As an amateur Onama went 10-0. As a pro, he is 8-0. In other words, Onama is experienced and has a winning pedigree heading into his UFC debut.
As for a prediction, I’m going on a whim and picking Onama. It’s a tough prediction, as I believe Jones is a talented fighter who has a bright future in the UFC. I just believe that Onama is coming into this fight as the perfect storm. On short notice and under the radar, his skills will shine bright under the big lights. So with all that said, I predict that Onama will win in a back-and-forth fight via decision.
PICK: David Onama (+340)
