Church vs. Brady

Michael Chiesa has fought in both the light and middle series during his career. However, given how much talent the lightweight series currently has, his return to the middleweight may be a wise decision. His Saturday fight is his third match of the year; he won in January and lost in August. This match will determine whether 2021 was a year of victory or defeat for the 33-year-old Denver. He has a lot of pressure to succeed well because he is part of Team Alpha Male, one of the best known crews in all mixed martial arts.

Sean Brady is a former Cage Fury FC middleweight champion. He is invincible during his professional career and is hungry for his first championship goal at the UFC. A win against a respected fighter like Michael Chiesa could elevate Brady to the top ten. Hall of Fame basketball coach Phil Jackson told his team, “You’re only successful when you make a successful move.” The saying was designed to convey a message that complacency is not ok; The desire to win must be at the center. Brady must not be happy with his past championships or his unbeaten records. The only way to realize his full potential is to strive for championship in the organization of which he is now a member.

Yahya vs. Kyung-ho

Rani Yahya won the gold medal at the Word Jiu-Jitsu Championships in both 2002 and 2003. Kang Kyung-ho is “a dude of all professions, not a champion of anything.” He is educated in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and taekwondo, but has not become a black belt in either art form. Yahya comes into this fight as a favorite thanks to her impressive resume and incredible skill set. Kyung-ho, on the other hand, is in the winning streak of three battles, but has not fought in front of the public since December 2019. It will be interesting to see how this encounter of skilled warriors progresses when they finally ascend the series. octagon together.

Calderwood vs. Santos

However, he has had some struggles inside the octagon lately and has lost three of his last five battles. Taila Santos has only one loss in her career and a three-match winning streak. His most recent match was a unanimous final victory in September of this year, when all his skills looked as sharp as ever. He is in top shape for an athlete of his size, and winning against him is not an easy task.

Grant vs. Yanez

In this battle, there is one fighter who has fought six times in the last five years, against a fighter who has fought seven times in the last two years. Davey Grant has lost three of his last six matches since 2016, and he has looked very mediocre in doing so. Adrian Yanez, for his part, has been an unstoppable force of nature since 2019, and has remained invincible for the past two years. Neither fighter is currently in the top ten of the top series. An impressive performance for Yanez on Saturday may be enough to finally reach this difficult mark. Grant is required to perform two or three consecutive impressive performances to steer his career in the right direction.
