JAMIE MULLARKEY VS FARES ZIAM LOWDOWN

After Brad Riddell ended Jamie Mullarkey’s (12-3) run of four straight knockouts a year ago in an epic battle, the Aussie is back and looks to make up for his UFC debut loss. Riddell is one tough fight for a debut and Mullarkey is clearly a dangerous fighter finishing all but one of his wins with eight knockouts and three submissions.

He takes on the Frenchman, Fares Ziam (10-3) who is also looking to bounce back from his UFC debut loss. After five wins on the trot, Don Madge welcomed him to the octagon in September last year and out grappled him for a unanimous decision win.

JAMIE MULLARKEY VS FARES ZIAM PREDICTION

Thankfully for Ziam, Mullarkey will not try and clinch up for three rounds and what we are likely to see is an exciting tussle with more striking. Ziam is a dangerous kickboxer but will not enjoy his usual reach advantage as Mullarkey is also a rangy lightweight.

If the fight stays on the feet for three rounds, we could easily see a late finish but if Ziam starts to get the better of the exchanges, the Aussie may look for a takedown. As we saw in the Riddell fight, Mullarkey can also take a hit or three and we are backing him to squeeze out a decision, but a variety of results are possible here.

Prediction: Mullarkey via Decision
