UFC Fight Night is set to get going this weekend from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nev. on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a five-bout main card highlighted by a women’s flyweight fight between Jessica Andrade and Erin Blanchfield. Also notable on the main card is a heavyweight fight between Josh Parisian and Jamal Pogues.

Parisian (15-5) steps back into the octagon after winning his last fight, a TKO over Alan Baudot. He lands 52% of his strikes and has won 11 of his 15 fights by knockout. While those numbers are impressive, Parisian has struggled with consistency throughout his UFC career. He is yet to win back-to-back fights and is 0-2 following a win.

Pogues (9-3) has won five of his last six, including his latest, a decision win over Paul Renato Jr. on Dana White’s Contender Series. Pogues is looking to go 2-0 in the UFC and while his striking numbers are respectable, his impressive takedown ability is what wins him matches. Per 15 minutes, he averages 3.5 takedowns along with a 53% accuracy rate and a high defensive rating. He’ll look to use this to his advantage in this heavyweight showdown.
