Also, since there are a bunch of debuting fighters or fighters with limited octagon experience, there aren’t a lot of great stats to provide and because there is little value my commentary would mostly be “no one can really feel confident here because this fight is something more appropriately held on the regional circuit” for every fight. As far as undercard bouts go, I will say that Rani Yahya should probably be the favorite in his fight but I am picking Matt Lopez and wouldn’t suggest a bet on either party. Now, let’s get to it.
