THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

We have a big exciting clash for the co-main event in Singapore. These two light heavyweights are natural finishers and do not do boring fights.

Tyson Pedro has looked electrifying in his young career, finishing every fight he has won. He was 6-0 before taking on Ilir Latifi back at UFC 215 but was outclassed, losing via a decision. However, he got back to old ways by brilliantly submitting Saparbek Safarov with a kimura.

Ovince Saint Preux (OSP) has also lost to Ilir Latifi and this was in fact his last fight which snapped a three-fight winning streak. He now has another dangerous opponent in Pedro, but OSP is probably the Aussie’s most dangerous assignment so far.

THE PREDICTION

They are both going to hunt the finish and most likely succeed. Which way it goes will be very hard to call but the damage will be done on the feet at first. They have extremely heavy hands and feet and they require just one shot to end the fight which is why their defence is crucial.

They both also have very dangerous ground games capable of pulling off an array of submissions. So, this is unlikely to go the distance with heavy strikes causing enough damage to end the fight or set up a submission to seal the victory.

It could go either way but you just can’t ignore the elite experience of OSP who has been fighting among the best light heavyweights in the world for three years.

Winner: Ovince Saint Preux via KO/TKO
