This part of the card is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. ET and will be streamed on UFC Fight Pass. A middleweight matchup between Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya for the UFC middleweight title will close out the card.
Bahamondes (13-4) is a versatile fighter, who has won his last two fights. In his last appearance he earned his first submission win over Rong Zhu with a third round guillotine choke. With a 47% striking accuracy, nine of his 13 wins have come by knockout. This weekend he looks to boost his winning streak to three.

This is a good matchup for the early prelims, as both fighters come in with an acquired skillset. Bahamondes, however, is a big favorite and largely in part to his ability to win in many ways. His last fight was his first submission win, but his strikes are deadly and lean toward him to take this on the money-line. Odds for Bahamondes by KO are +150 as well.
