|Tagir Ulanbekov||Allan Nascimento|
The curtain jerker comes in the Flyweight division, as Tagir Ulanbekov takes on UFC debutant Allan ‘Puro Osso’ Nascimento. This will be Ulanbekov’s first fight since debuting in the UFC a year ago. The Russian was supposed to return sooner, but he pulled out of three fights this year alone. Heading into this bout with a four-fight win streak, Ulanbekov will look to keep the momentum going. Meanwhile, Nascimento makes his UFC debut three months after winning a fight in his native Brazil. The fight itself was the Brazilian’s first bout since appearing in Dana White’s Contender Series nearly three years ago.
This should be a fairly competitive fight, as both men have the experience and a winning pedigree. Tagir Ulanbekov is a well rounded fighter, who mainly looks to implement his wrestling abilities. In his UFC debut against Bruno Silva, Ulanbekov landed five takedowns out of his eleven attempts. Surprisingly however, Ulanbekov was taken down four times by Silva. Something that Allan Nascimento may be eyeballing, as the grappling specialist has won thirteen of his eighteen fights via submission.
As for a prediction, I’m going with Ulanbekov. While I believe this fight ultimately is going to be close, I foresee Ulanbekov’s well roundedness carrying him. The grappling exchanges could be back-and-forth, but on the feet, Ulanbekov does a good job at keeping distance and picking opponents apart from the outside. So with all that said, I predict that Ulanbekov wins via decision.
