The UFC heads abroad for an offering headlined by a pair of the top welterweights in the world. Ben Askren (19-1) looks to get back in the win column as he takes on perennial top 10er Demian Maia (27-9) in a bout that may be showcasing the best pure grapplers in the division. In the co-main event, Stevie Ray (22-9) takes on Michael Johnson (19-14) as both look to find their place in the crowded lightweight division.
Back on Track
Ben Askren started his career with an impressive 19 straight victories. Among the most impressive were a submission victory over Robbie Lawler, a TKO of Shinya Aoki and a decision over Douglas Lima. However, despite this fantastic run, most everyone simply remembers the brutal loss he suffered last time out. In just 5 seconds, Jorge Masvidal landed a flying knee that left Askren cold. He’ll have redemption on his mind this Saturday morning.
Trying to keep him from righting the ship is Demian Maia, who is quietly riding a 2 fight win streak. Although this streak is marked by a step down in the competition for Maia, Maia has fought the best of the best in the division. His last 4 bouts prior to the win streak came against the top 4 fighters in the welterweight division.
Although Singapore is just a touch smaller than Rhode Island in terms of land size, the UFC is packing the pounds on this card. In total 3 of the 11 fights will be contested at heavyweight.
The first of such fights features a pair of ranked heavyweights looking to climb up the division. #13 Maurice Greene (8-2) looks to make it 4 straight upon his arrival to the division. Standing across from him will be Sergey Pavlovich (12-1), who headlined on his very first UFC card against Alistair Overeem. Since then, he’s showed why the UFC had that much faith in him.
Other heavyweight bouts include debutante Don’Tale Mayes (7-2), who comes to the UFC via the Contender Series, where he won his contract in his third try. He’ll face off with exciting kickboxer Cyril Gane (4-0), who trains with Francis Ngannou at the MMA Factory in Paris.
Raphael Pessoa Nunes(9-0-0)
