BROK WEAKER VS JALIN TURNER LOWDOWN

Weaver gets a new opponent after preparing for Frank Camacho and will now face Jalin Turner. Weaver did not have the smoothest start to his UFC career back in February, but he extended his winning streak to eight with the help of an illegal knee by Rodrigo Vargas forcing a disqualification. However, he is now coming off a submission loss to Roosevelt Roberts.

Turner was gutted Thiago Moises pulled out of UFC Vegas 9 last week due to a positive COVID-19 test in the camp but at least he has another fight lined up. Turner was fed to to wolves on his UFC debut, stepping up to welterweight to get slept by Vicente Luque. He stepped back down to lightweight and back into his groove with a knockout over Callan Potter but was outpointed by Matt Frevola in his next fight. He is now coming off his ninth win and eighth knockout of his career finishing Joshua Culibao in New Zealand back in February

BROK WEAVER VS JALIN TURNER PREDICTION

Turner will possess a familiar height and reach advantage over his lightweight opponent boasting four inches in arm reach and three in height. Weaver is dangerous on the feet with solid boxing and a durable chin but Turner will not feel threatened by his power and look to be the aggressor in the stand-up exchanges.

Although they have both only had a few days to prepare for each other, this should be an exciting scrap and could even turn into the fight of the night. They are expected to go toe-to-toe but the longer the fight stays on the feet the more you have to favour Turner with his extra range and power.

Winner: Turner via KO/TKO
