MMA Preview – Oskar Piechota vs Jonathan Wilson at UFC Fight Night 118

Date: Saturday 21st October, 8pm (UK)

Location: Gdansk, Poland

Venue: Ergo Arena

The unbeaten hometown middleweight kicks off the main card in Gdansk by welcoming Jonathan Wilson for his first fight outside the United States.

Oskar Piechota has fought for numerous promotions but the UFC have grabbed the prospect after several spectacular finishes. Despite one draw early in his career, he has submitted or knocked out all of his opponents by the second round which is exactly the type of fighter the UFC desire and he will be hoping to ignite his UFC journey in similar fashion.

Wilson will be looking to spoil the show as he returns to the octagon after a year on the sidelines. He has been in a very similar situation to Piechota as he also arrived to the UFC undefeated with a plethora of finishes. However, he couldn't continue his form after the step-up in UFC competition, suffering losses against Henrique da Silva and Ion Cutelaba.

It will be interesting to see how Wilson responds after his first defeats and a long lay-off. He may be more cautious than usual but Piechota will still have to be wary and rely on his sound technical ability in this one.

The key stats highlighted is their win breakdown, proving they both hunt the finish with success which could produce a swashbuckling start to the main card.
