On the early preliminary card of UFC Fight Island 6, Jamie Mullarkey will take on Fares Ziam in a lightweight bout live from Fight Island in Abu Dhabi and also available on ESPN+.

Mullarkey will enter the octagon as the slight favorite, with a 12-3 MMA record, but is 0-1 in the UFC losing to Brad Riddell by unanimous decision in October of last year. With eight knockouts on his record, Mullarkey is certainly more of a striker than a grappler.

Both fighters were absolutely dominated in their first UFC bout.

The Frenchman Ziam has a bit more of a mixed bag of finishes, with five knockouts and four submission in his ten MMA victories. He also has three losses on his record as well. Ziam enters with a four-inch height advantage, and lost his only UFC contest to Don Madge by unanimous decision in September of 2019.

The amount wagered heavily favors Mullarkey, but Ziam has a solid amount of the total public bets topping 40 percent.
