THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Andre Soukhamthath was scheduled to fight Gavin Tucker but he pulled out with an injury so the UFC have called up Jonathan Martinez for his debut. This is a great opportunity for Martinez whose only loss was a disqualification to Matt Schnell after an illegal knee and if he can get past Soukhamthath, his UFC career may just be in jeopardy so a lot is at stake for both men.

THE PREDICTION

Both men are very well-rounded bantamweights – they are rapid, powerful strikers with very competent ground games. This fight will mainly be contested on the feet as both men will try and prove they are the better striker while seeking that all-important knockout.

This fight could really go anywhere and although Soukhamthath has more experience against better fighters, Martinez has hardly been troubled so far in his career and has all the confidence in capturing another finish.

Winner: Martinez via KO/TKO
