It’s UFC International Fight Week in Las Vegas, and that always draws big talent to the card.
In addition to two title bouts, a mix of past and future contenders stacks the deck. Before we see the best middleweight in the main event, we’ll see whether a relatively new middleweight prospect, Andre Muniz, is the real deal.
Andre Muniz (-245) vs. Uriah Hall (+ 205)
Muniz is riding a three-fight armbar submission streak and has a chance to become one of the more feared grapplers in the game. But while he might have the edge on the ground, Muniz must prove he can close the distance against a superior striker.
Hall certainly has the experience edge, though Muniz sizes up well against him. Muniz attempts takedowns at a furious pace and lands them at an above average rate. Hall’s takedown defense is decent but probably won’t hold for long. After that, his submission defense will be tested.
