THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Sheymon Moraes is desperate to live up to his potential and fight more frequently. He only has two losses on his record and they were against Marlon Moraes who has torn up the bantamweight division and Zabit Magomedsharipov who is touted as the biggest prospect in the UFC. After losing his debut to Magomedsharipov, Moraes went on to win two decisions against Matt Sayles and Julio Arce.

Sodiq Yusuff is a prospect in his own right with only one loss on his record. He earnt a UFC contract with a decision over Mike Davis on Dana White’s Contender Series and impressed with a superb knockout finish over Suman Mokhtarian in his last fight.

THE PREDICTION

This is likely to be a very fast-paced stand-up battle. Yusuff’s statistics are based on his one UFC fight but he will approach this fight just as aggressively. However, Moraes is a different class on the feet as a multiple-time national kickboxing and Muay Thai champion and if he doesn’t find the finish, he is likely to outpoint the young American.

Winner: Moraes via Decision
