UFC with The FUZZ

THE FUZZ - UFC fight night May 19 @ the APEX Las Vegas

Between Edson Barboza Vs Lerone Murphy

Tip: Edson Barboza

The Main event features a featherweight bout Between Edson Barboza and Lerone Murphy. Barboza ranked #12 in the division and 38 years old, has fought the who’s who of the UFC since 2010. If Murphy, ranked #14 undefeated in 5 bouts with 1 draw, can defeat Barboza, it will give him a big push up the rankings

Thembo Gorimbo vs Ramiz Brahimaj

Tip : Thembo Gorimbo

In another Main Card matchup,  Welterweights Thembo Gorimbo vs Ramiz Brahimaj. Gorimbo, originally from Zimbabwe, is a rising talent, and after dropping his first UFC bout, has had two consecutive victories. I’m expecting a 3rd against a fellow grappler.

Adrian Yanez vs Vinicius Salvador

Tip: Adrian Yanez

Bantamweight fight Adrian Yanez vs Vinicius Salvador Both fighters are coming off two consecutive losses. However, two top-ranked fighters defeated Yanez with a nine from 11 record in the UFC.

THE FUZZ - This week's UFC fight night, May 12

Derrick (black beast) Lewis Vs Rodrigo Nascimento

Tip: Rodrigo Nascimento

This week’s UFC fight night, May 12, takes us to St Louis, Missouri. Where the Main Event is a heavyweight bout between Derrick (black beast) Lewis and Rodrigo Nascimento.

We know Big Derrick is a knockout guy who once had the most knockouts in the UFC. Nascimento likes to take it to the mat and grapple, and that’s where I can see him getting the better of an aging beast.

Alonzo Menifield vs Carlos Ulberg

Tip: Carlos Ulberg

In a Light Heavyweight bout, Alonzo Menifield vs Carlos Ulberg.

This fight should be action-packed as both like to strike. I’m going for more accuracy here.

Diego Ferreira vs Mateusz Rebecki

Tip: Mateusz Rebecki

In a lightweight bout, Diego Ferreira vs Mateusz Rebecki, Diego has been around a long time and has only lost to the elite in this division. Rebecki has only 3 fights in his UFC career but has been a pro fighter since 2014 and is currently on a 16-fight winning streak.

04/05/2024 - THE FUZZ

UFC 301 brings us back to Rio de Janeiro, where the 5 main card fights each feature a Brazilian Warrior. This can be a huge psychological advantage. So I’m selecting 3 from 5.

Alexandre Pantoja vs Steve Ecerg.

Tip: Alexandre Pantoja

Event Flyweights Alexandre Pantoja vs Steve Ecerg.
Tip: The champ Pantoja to win.

Anthony Smith vs Vitor Petrino

Tip: Vitor Petrino

Undercard bouts Light heavyweight Anthony Smith vs Vitor Petrino

Middleweight Michel Periera vs Ihor Potieria.

Tip: Michael Periera

28/04/2024 - THE FUZZ

Matheus Nicolau vs Alex Perez

Tip: Alex Perez

UFC fight night April 21 Main event Flyweight fight between #5 ranked Matheus Nicolau vs #8 ranked Alex Perez. Nicolau has moved up the ranks with 4 wins from his last 5 fights. Perez has fought the best in the division but come up short He has 24 wins in his career.

Ryan Spann vs Bogdan Guskov

Tip: Bogdan Guskov

In a light heavyweight bout between #11 ranked Ryan Spann and Bogdan Guskov. Spann is ranked #11 in the division.

Guskov has only 2 fights in his UFC career but has a 15-3 MMA record with 13 TKO’s.

Tim Means vs Uros Medic

Tip: Uros Medic

Further down the main card a welterweight bout features Tim Means vs Uros Medic. Uros has won 7 of his 9 wins by knockout and I expect him to do the same to his more experienced 10 years older Means.

13/04/2024 - UFC 300 has finally arrived with the biggest fight card of all time.

Main Event: Alex Pereira vs Jamahal Hill

Tip: Alex Periera

The Brazilian Pereira is a former kickboxing champion, has knockout punching power and has taken the UFC by storm to win the Middleweight belt then moved to Light heavyweight champion in only 7 appearances. Jamahal Hill claimed the Light heavyweight belt by beating Glover Texiera, then injured in Achilles in July last year and relinquished the belt.

Justin Gaethje vs Max Holloway for the BMF title

Tip: Justin Gaethje

In another main card event Justin Gaethje vs Max Holloway for the BMF title.

Gaethje is ranked #2 in the lightweight division and one of the UFC’s most violent fighters. Holloway was the former Featherweight champion who seemed invincible before the Volk arrived on the scene. One of the most eagerly anticipated fights on the card.

Jiri Prochazka vs Aleksandar Rakic

Tip: Jiri Prochazka

In the last fight of the Prelims, we see Jiri Prochazka vs Aleksandar Rakic.

Prochazcha #2 the former light heavyweight champion relinquished the belt due to a shoulder injury only to return and lose to Alex Periera ( current champion ) Rakic ranked #5 was taking the division by storm before injuring his shoulder and been out since May ’22. This should be an exciting fight.

THE FUZZ (06/04/2024) UFC main event

Watch Allen take his revenge!

Tip: Brendan Allen

This week’s UFC main event in Las Vegas features middleweight Brendan Allen vs Chris Curtis.

In 2021 Allen took a short notice fight against Chris Curtis and lost by knockout.

Since then he has been on a 6 fight winning streak and is currently ranked #6 in the middleweight division.

This week he was scheduled to fight Marvin Vettori who pulled out through injury and was replaced by, guess who 31 fight veteran Chris Curtis.

THE FUZZ

It's fight night in Atlantic City

Tip: Erin Blanchfield

This week in the UFC’s main event we have Erin Blanchfield vs Manon Fiorot. 2 undefeated women’s featherweight contenders ranked no. 2 & 3 in the division. Both are very dangerous and accomplished strikers. Blanchfield is also a Brazilian Jui Jitsu black belt and I think her grappling skillset will get her hand raised and closer to a title shot

Vicente Luque V Joaquin Buckley

Tip: Vicente Luque

The Co-Main event features welterweights Vicente Luque V Joaquin Buckley. Luque is ranked 11th in the division and has fought most of the big names above him. Buckley has dropped down a weight division and has had 2 successive victories. Will Buckley get a knockout or will Luque’s experience win it?

Bill Algeo vs Kyle Nelson

Tip: Bill Algeo

A Featherweight bout featuring Bill Algeo vs Kyle Nelson looks on paper evenly matched. But I believe Algeo’s aggression and more accurate striking see him take the honours.

MR FUZZ UFC Mar 24

Rose 'Thug' Namajunes against Brazilian Amanda Rivas

Tip: Amanda Ribas

The main event pits women’s flyweights former strawweight champ Rose ‘Thug’ Namajunes against Brazilian Amanda Rivas.

Rose won everyone’s respect when she beat the Strawweight champ she devil Joanna Redzejczyk twice and also won twice against Welli Zhang the current Strawweight champ.

Since then she has lost 2 consecutive fights the last dislocating her finger in round 1 and continuing to battle. Amanda has been switching between 2 weight divisions and has earned herself a position in the too 10 in both divisions. She went 2 -1 last year in each weight class with a loss in the middle against 4th-ranked Maycee Barber.

This is a tough one to pick.

Karl Williams (9 -1) vs Justin Tafa (7-3)

Tip: Karl Williams

In the undercard, we have Heavyweights Karl Williams 9 -1 vs Justin Tafa 7 -3 Karl Williams is riding a six-fight winning streak and is looking to climb the heavyweight rankings. New Zealand’s ‘Bad Man’ TKO wrecking machine Tafa has had 3 1st round finishes in his last 4 fights.

Payton Talbott and Cameron Saaiman

Tip: Payton Talbott.

In a Bantamweight matchup, we see 2 very exciting fighters, Payton Talbott and Cameron Saaiman. Talbott has an amateur and pro record with knockout and submission wins going 7-0 Saaiman a South African and teammate of middle-weight champ Dricus Du Plessis was 9-0 before a last-fight loss to Christian Rodriguez in a decision.

17/03/2024 - UFC By FUZZ

Tuivasa vs Marcin Tybura

Tip: Tai Tuivasa.

This week’s UFC main event brings back Tai (Bam Bam ) Tuivasa vs Marcin Tybura.

All Aussies know about Bam Bam and his legendary knockouts followed by his post-fight beer drinking from a stranger’s shoe victory ritual.

Tuivasa likes to knock them out early but has lost his last 3 against higher-ranked opponents. Marcin Tybura can grapple and strike and combats normally longer fights.

Can Bam Bam get an early knock or will Tybura take it the distance? Let’s go for a Shoey.

Bryan Battle against Ange Loosa

Tip: Bryan Battle.

2 fights in the undercard we have rising welterweights Bryan Battle 5 wins and 1 loss in the Octagon against Ange Loosa 3 – 1

Christian Rodriguez vs Isaac Dulgarian

Tip: Dulgarian.

In a featherweight fixture promising young talents Christian Rodriguez vs Isaac Dulgarian. Rodriguez had 2 victories in 2023 at bantamweight but failed to make weight hence the move to featherweight. Dulgarian has 6 wins and 0 losses in his MMA career and has never seen the 2nd round. 

UFC 299 BY THE FUZZ

Gilbert Burns vs Jack Della Maddalena

Tip Burns

We see 2 veterans in their respective divisions up against rising contenders.

Burns has fought the best in the welterweight division. Jack is tough, very tough, but can leave himself open to punishment.

With Burn’s experience and all-round skills, he will get his hand raised.

Main Event Dustin (the diamond) Poirier vs Benoit Saint-Denis

Tip Benoit Saint-Denis

Poirier is a lightweight legend & has had many hard wars against the best.

Saint Denis a former special forces soldier is no stranger to violence and brings it to the Octagon hard and fast.

Poirier’s long history of hard-fought battles will catch up to him.

Main Event.Sean (Sugar) O'Malley vs Marlon Vera

Tip O'Malley

Sugar Sean the champ has only lost one fight in his career.

You got it back in Aug 2020 to Marlon Vera.

O’Malley badly injured his leg in the first round, Vera smelled blood and got the TKO quickly.

Watch for O’Malley to avenge his loss and retain his belt.
