The main card in Dallas kicks-off in style with two up-and-coming talents who both only have one blemish on their records. Both men are showing huge potential in the welterweight division and have firmly bounced back from the sole career losses.

After a tight decision loss to Omari Akhmedov, Abdul Alhassan removed all doubt by knocking out Sabah Homasi after their first fight ended prematurely. Niko price has also secured a rear-naked choke over George Sullivan and a knockout of Randy Brown after getting submitted by Vicente Luque.


These men are real showstoppers, especially the explosive Alhassan who hits like a truck. We know what to expect from the Ghanaian who has finished every win with a knockout. However, we may finally get to see his renowned Judoka skills as Price is a dangerous grappler.

Price is also more than capable of a knockout but combining his takedowns and submission prowess makes him a threat to anyone. This fight is going under the radar but it has everything. If they choose to stand, it will be a violent affair and probably won’t last long but if they decide to grapple we’ll witness skill of the highest level.

Winner: Price via Decision
