THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Nathaniel Wood is well-known on the British scene as the former Cage Warriors champion and is beginning to make some noise on the international scene as he makes his third UFC appearance. Wood is extremely experienced for his age and is on fire with seven finishes on the trot, with four knockouts and three submissions. Two of those submissions were in his UFC fights against Johnny Eduardo and Andre Ewell and now he meets José Alberto Quiñónez.

Quiñónez makes the long trip from Mexico hoping to start a consistent run of fights. After coming up short against Alejandro Pérez in The Ultimate Fighter finale back in 2014, he has only managed one fight a year since has won all four of them.

THE PREDICTION

Quiñónez is a good grappler and boxer and has the speed to put Wood in trouble. The stats suggest they are very evenly-matched, but Wood is better in every area. His grappling continues to improve but his striking and the power in his hands is likely to set up a finish.

Winner: Wood via KO/TKO
