HONORABLE MENTION 1: Uriah Hall vs. Oluwale Bamgbose
The final fight on the preliminary card is an exciting Middleweight fight between TUF 17 runner up Uriah Hall and promotional newcomer Oluwale Bamgbose. Uriah Hall holds one of the nastiest knockouts in TUF history when he knocked Adam Cella out via Spinning Head Kick. It earned Hall Knockout of the Season and gave him a true notoriety throughout the remainder of the season. He defeated Bubba McDaniels in the Quarterfinals and then beat Dylan Andrews in the semis to get to the live finale. He faced off against extreme underdog Kelvin Gastelum and lost in an incredibly close Split Decision. He went 3-1 in his next 4 fights prior to losing his most recent fight to Rafael Natal. All of his UFC losses were by Split Decision and he is always down for a war. He is facing promotional newcomer Oluwale Bamgbose. Bamgbose is 5-0 in MMA and has five first round TKO victories. It will be incredibly exciting to see whether Hall rebounds or Bamgbose starts his UFC campaign with a huge victory over a big name opponent.
HONORABLE MENTION 2: Ray Borg vs. Geane Herrera
The opening fight on the main card is a matchup between two exciting Flyweights. Ray Borg looks to extend his two fight UFC Win streak against Geane Herrera. Herrera is making his UFC debut and is looking to make a statement. The UFC didn’t do him any favors though, they put him up against Borg, a dangerous submission artist who has 7 wins by submission. Herrera holds 5 submission victories of his own and this fight is essentially a dream fight for grappling fans. Neither fighter has ever been submitted, however, so the difference in this fight will be which fighter adapts to the way the fight goes better.
