"The Hammer" takes on Janes in his third UFC fight with an equal record but more experience. The fighter has a 21-6 record and has a 62 percent KO/TKO rate. His statistics show Marshman to be more of a stand-up artist than his opponent, who is more likely to take the fight to the mat.
Ryan Janes    UFC    Middleweight
Janes will face Jack Marshman in a middleweight bout at UFC Fight Night 113 on July 16 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Fantasy Analysis

Janes is newer to the UFC stage. He has a 1-1 record with the promotion but sports a 9-2-0 mark overall. The grappler matches up well statistically with Marshman with a 100 percent takedown accuracy and an average 5.13 significant strikes landed per minute.
Augusto Sakai    Bellator    Heavyweight
Sakai will face Cheick Kongo in a heavyweight bout at Bellator 179 on May 19 in London, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Sakai maintains a record of 9-0-1 in Bellator but has not fought since May 2016 against Dan Charles. Sakai's wins have come from seven knockouts, but injury and an inconsistent fight schedule have limited his activity in the early part of his career.
Cheick Kongo    Bellator    Heavyweight
Kongo will face Augusto Sakai in a heavyweight matchup at Bellator 179 on May 19 in London, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Kongo may be 12 years older than his opponent, Sakai, but the veteran has the experience to take down the young gun for a fifth straight Bellator victory. Kongo, who joined Bellator in 2013, has racked up a career record of 26-10-2 (8-2 in Bellator). The heavyweight owns 13 career knockouts, though his last five fights (four wins) have all gone to the judges.
Teruto Ishihara    UFC    Featherweight
Ishihara will face Gray Maynard in a featherweight matchup at The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption Finale on July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Fantasy Analysis

Ishihara is coming off a recent loss to Artem Lobov after earning back-to-back wins. Eight of the young fighter's nine professional wins are from knockouts, which corresponds to his average 4.62 significant strikes landed per minute. Maynard's defense may present a problem for Ishihara, making this a matchup of defense and experience versus offense and agility.
Gray Maynard    UFC    Featherweight
Maynard will face Teruto Ishihara in a featherweight matchup at The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption Finale on July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Fantasy Analysis

Maynard suffered losses in five of his last six fights dating back to 2013. While he absorbs 2.53 significant strikes per minute, he maintains a 69 percent significant strike defense and an 83 percent takedown defense. Age may be a determining factor since Maynard is 12 years Ishihara's senior, but his commendable defense could hold off the 25-year-old Team Alpha Male product's attacks.
