UFC Fight Night will come from Moody Center in Austin, TX on Saturday, June 18. The main card will be on ESPN and ESPN+ at 7 p.m. with the preliminary card starting at 4 p.m. on ESPN2 and ESPN+. One of the preliminary fights will feature two Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belts when Ricardo Ramos and Danny Chavez battle in the featherweight division.
Ramos (15-4) will be stepping into the octagon for the 10th time in his career. He is stumbled as of late, going 3-3 in his past six and losing two out of three at the end of that stretch. Most recently Ramos lost a tough decision to Zubaira Tukhugov at UFC 267. Chavez (11-4-1) also has mixed results since joining the UFC. He won his debut against T.J. Brown at UFC 252, but lost by decision to Jared Gordon at a Fight Night in February 2021 and then drew with Kai Kamaka last July. It’s been almost a year since Chavez has been in the ring, so he’s had time to get healthy and prepare for a better run.
How to watch Ricardo Ramos vs. Danny Chavez
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 89% of handle, 82% of bets on Ramos
Ramos always puts on a good show. He is a very good striker take can handle himself well when the fight goes to the ground. Chavez is going to be at a size and length disadvantage, so he’s going to have to get inside to strike and avoid ending up on his back. Ramos has a ton of advantages in this fight and I suspect he’ll get back on track with a stoppage win in the second round.
