THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

The Jiu-Jitsu wizard Davi Ramos heads to New York for his fifth UFC fight looking for a fourth win in a row. He has lived up to the hype so far in transitioning from the grappling world and although he lost a decision to Sergio Moraes on his UFC debut, he strung together three submissions and three rear-naked chokes over Chris Gruetzemacher, Nick Hein and John Gunther.

Austin Hubbard makes his UFC debut sitting proudly on a 10-2 record. He has won his last three and comes off one of his most impressive performances for the Legacy Fighting Alliance. He weathered the storm of Killys Mota in a violent exchange on the feet and finished him with devastating elbows and knees to the body.

THE PREDICTION

Hubbard will hope to repeat his recent performances and impress on his UFC debut but this will be a completely different fight. Even though Ramos is a dangerous striker with powerful leg kicks in his locker, Hubbard will still want to keep the fight on the feet as the Brazilian is in a different stratosphere when it comes to ground skills.

Ramos is a decorated Jiu-Jitsu champion and will require just one opportunity to get Hubbard to the ground and find a submission. Hubbard’s only chance is an early knockout but Ramos is growing quickly in his MMA career and will be confident wherever the fight goes.

Winner: Ramos via Submission
