UFC 278 | Prelim Preview
Saturday, August 20th (10:00 PM EST Main Card, 8:00 PM EST Prelims, 6:00 PM EST Early Prelims)
Marcin Tybura vs. Alexandr Romanov
WATCH - This is a more important fight than anything but the main event. The undefeated #13 Romanov has the ability to bring something to heavyweight that hasn’t been seen since the reign of Daniel Cormier. A true wrestling talent that doesn’t just exhaustedly lay on his opponents, but can throw 265 pound men around like nothing and chase submissions. #11 Tybura, who is quite fond of the exhausted laying tactic, will be the perfect test to see if Romanov’s style will work against ranked opponents.
Leonardo Santos vs. Jared Gordon
BATHROOM BREAK - Santos was incredible in his late 30s but at 42 his age is finally starting to show. UFC is giving him a great shot here at one last triumph because Gordon is beyond mediocre at lightweight and would still be fighting at featherweight if he could reliably make weight.
Sean Woodson vs. Luis Saldana
WATCH - Now this is a featherweight banger! Woodson is a goofy looking featherweight with an insane reach advantage, which should make for an interesting strike-fest against Saldana who usually abuses his own long reach to create space and control the octagon in fights.
Miranda Maverick vs. Shanna Young
WATCH - Women’s flyweight, the worst division in the UFC (we don’t count women’s featherweight as a real division), has 2 fighters coming off of finish victories matched up against each other. This is a once in a lifetime event!
AJ Fletcher vs. Ange Loosa
WATCH - Fletcher was easily one of the hottest prospects coming out of Contender Series 2021, if not the hottest. Was a shock to all of us when he a year later he lost his UFC debut. Still only 25, UFC is looking to build him back slowly against a mediocre regional-level talent who also just lost his debut. Another loss here and we’ll be seeing Fletcher make his debut in Bellator.
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Goes The Distance 1u @ -165 (better than -238.2)
Amir Albazi vs. Francisco Figueiredo
WATCH - Yes, that’s the flyweight champion Figueiredo. Yes, he’s fighting on the early prelims. Stop asking questions.
Aoriqileng vs. Jay Perrin
BATHROOM BREAK - Could be fun, but not really relevant to anything. Just some bottom tier tiny men getting after it (Part 2/2).
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Goes The Distance 1u @ -175 (better than -201.3)
Daniel Da Silva vs. Victor Altamirano
BATHROOM BREAK - Could be fun, but not really relevant to anything. Just some bottom tier tiny men getting after it (Part 1/2).
MMAalgo Bet - Daniel Da Silva 3.5u @ +140 (better than -142.8)
