Main Card Preview For UFC Fight Night: Holloway Versus Oliveira

Posted by on 8/13/2015 11:40:44 PM

Injuries and travel restrictions have impacted the main card for the UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Oliveira event but the result is a pretty loaded card headlined by a five-round main event fight between two rising stars in the featherweight division. Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira have both done some major damage in their division over the past couple of years and at 23 and 25-years-old respectively they are only now entering their prime. Here is a look at the best bets on the board for the UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Oliveira main card.

Featherweight Bout

(13-3-0) Max Holloway vs. Charles Oliveira (20-4-0)

Holloway is a rising star in the UFC featherweight division with six straight wins under his belt including five via stoppage since his unanimous decision loss to the current champion Conor McGregor. Holloway has learned some important lessons over the last two years and if he can find a way to come out on top of this fight it will provide a major spark to his title considerations. Oliveira himself is in the mix of title contenders after four straight wins and his submission skills have been well documented with three of his last four victories coming by making his opponents tap. Oliveira is a very skilled fighter but we like Holloway to take this fight to him and end it before the full five rounds are complete.

Pick: Holloway

Welterweight Bout

(27-11-0) Neil Magny vs. Erick Silva (18-5-0)

It won’t take long for Magny to get a shot at redemption as he gets back inside the Octagon to take on Silva less than one month after having his streak of seven straight wins ended by Demian Maia. Magny took this bout on short notice after Ricky Story was injured but he will be in tough against a very talented fighter in Silva, who is coming off consecutive submission wins over Mike Rhodes and Josh Koscheck. Silva will undoubtedly try to make him tap but if Magny is smart and picks his spots to stay out of trouble he could very well get back on track with a win.

Pick: Magny

Welterweight Bout

(27-11-0) Josh Burkman vs. Patrick Cote (21-9-0)

The veteran Canadian Cote bounced back from a unanimous decision loss to Stephen Thompson with a win over Joe Riggs and he should be able to string together a second consecutive win over Burkman. Cote has been a patient and smart fighter that has picked his spots and he should be able to dictate the pace of the fight against Burkman, who is coming off a submission loss to Dong Hyun Kim

Pick: Cote

Lightweight Bout

(10-0-0) Chad Laprise vs. Francisco Trinaldo (17-4-0)

The 29-year-old Laprise is a rising star in the lightweight ranks with 10 straight wins under his belt including victories over Olivier Aubin-Mercier, Yosdenis Cedeno and Bryan Barberena in the UFC. Laprise hasn’t dominated his opponents but he is a smart fighter that picks his spots and should be able to extend his perfect record to 11-0 when he takes on the veteran Brazilian Trinaldo in this bout.

Pick: Laprise

Lightweight Bout

(6-1-0) Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Chris Wade (10-1-0)

Aubin-Mercier has strung together consecutive submission wins since his loss to Laprise and the Canadian fans will be in his corner against an opponent that has strung three straight UFC wins of his own together in Wade. This fight could really go either way but we like Aubin-Mercier to extend his run and hand Wade his first-career UFC loss.

Women’s Strawweight Bout

(6-0-0) Maryna Moroz vs. Valerie Letourneau (7-3-0)

The main card for this event will begin with “The Iron Woman” Maroz looking to remain perfect when she clashes with the French Canadian Letourneau. Letourneau has impressed with three straight wins but Maroz has absolutely dominated her opponents with five straight first-round submission wins so we will take The Iron Woman to win this bout by making Letorneau tap and improve to 7-0 all-time.

Pick: Maroz
