THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Carlo Pedersoli Jr. makes his second UFC appearance and has been handed the very dangerous Alex Oliveira after a very impressive debut against Bradley Scott. Pedersoli is only 25 years old and is a big prospect in the welterweight division, but this will be a real test of his talents as Oliveira has had 12 UFC fights and only lost three of them.

THE PREDICTION

Both these men are electrifying strikers but are also very dangerous on the mat. They both have the confidence to finish the fight anywhere but they will both look to inflict early damage on the feet.

Oliveira will take confidence from the fact Pedersoli took a lot of damage from Scott and took him to a close decision. Pedersoli also tired in that fight which will play into Oliveira’s hands who likes to mix in several takedown attempts with his striking.

Winner: Oliveira via Decision
