Wang Guan makes his UFC debut in his home country and has earned the chance after an impressive string of performances – winning his last seven with five of them coming via a finish. He will be very grateful to make his entrance in China which will be his 19th appearance there and many believe this fight will be a slobber knocker.
Both fighters are very exciting and relish a stand-up war. Alex Careres has struggled against very talented fighters in his UFC career but is coming off a superb TKO victory over Rolando Dy.
The record of Caceres will excite Guan as although he has fought stellar competition, he has lost in numerous ways, giving Guan various opportunities to prepare for. Whether he can exploit these opportunities is a different matter as it remains to be seen if the UFC debutant can match up to the opponents Caceres has fought.
