UFC 270 is set to get going this weekend from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on Saturday, January 22nd. There is a five-bout main card that will get started around 10:00 p.m. ET and is highlighted by a heavyweight title fight between Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane, but there’s plenty of action earlier in the day. ESPN and ESPN+ will host the preliminary card that starts at 8:00 p.m. ET, where you can watch Tony Gravely vs. Saimon Oliveira in a bantamweight bout.
Gravely enters this matchup with a 21-7 professional fighting record. He is looking to get back into the win column as he lost his last fight against Nate Maness by a second-round knockout. The worry for Gravely in this matchup is that his submission defense is one of the weaker aspects of him as a fighter and Oliveira is a specialist.
Oliveira enters with an 18-3 record with all three losses being from a unanimous decision. If the fight has ended before the final bell dings, Oliveira has come away with the win. He has a guillotine, arm triangle and a slew of chokeholds in his arsenal and 11 of his wins have come by submission. Most recently, he won against Jose Alday by a split decision in September of 2021.
