Early Matchups to Watch
Seth Baczynski vs. Simeon Thoresen
Of the three matches that are taking place online, this one will be the best. Both Baczynski and Thoresen are submission experts, and this match is likely to end that way as well.
Thoresen has won his last three matches by submission but has never tapped himself. His ability to maneuver on the ground will help him be successful in this competitive match.
Jimy Hettes vs. Marcus Brimage
This is a matchup of two up-and-coming fighters that can be part of the future of the sport. Hettes is a 25-year-old competitor who only recently entered UFC. He is 10-0 in his MMA career and won almost all but one by submission.
Brimage is a talented fighter, but he will have a tough challenge in this fight. He is equally inexperienced and has struggled a little since entering UFC.
Hettes can use this bout as a stepping-stone to a great career.
Igor Pokrajac vs. Vinny Magalhaes
After Jon Jones, there is a lot of parity within the light heavyweight division. While these two have struggled at times, there is a decent chance they can work their way up the rankings toward being a contender.
Pokrajac is 4-3 since entering UFC, but his last three wins have been impressive. Meanwhile, Magalhaes has won his last five bouts, all by submission or TKO.
These are two of the more talented fighters in the division. Whoever wins will have a great opportunity to move up toward more high-profile events.
