These Fight Pass cards feature a ton of newcomers who are looking to strike it big in the UFC. This card is no different.
There are four men making their UFC debuts on this card—three of which are on the prelims. The only one on the main card, Neil Seery, is an interesting prospect and former Cage Warriors champion, but he is being thrown to the lions against Pickett.
As for the three men on the undercard, all of them are intriguing fighters that have a bright future. Those men are British submission fighter Danny Mitchell, Brazilian grappler Claudio Henrique and Swedish prospect Mats Nilsson.
Mitchell takes on Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Igor Araujo in a tough matchup. Most of Mitchell's work is done on the ground, but it will be tough against a more experienced guy like Araujo. Mitchell is a good prospect with a tough first draw.
Henrique is a UK-based Brazilian on a big winning streak. He most recently won at Super Fight League, where he outgrappled Xavier Foupa-Pokam to a decision. He is an interesting prospect in a middleweight division needing a little more depth.
Nilsson is one of Sweden's best prospects, but he gets a tough draw in Luke Barnatt. Barnatt is a striker with great length and height which will be tough for Nilsson to figure out. He has been in the cage with guys like Tor Troeng and Tom Speer, the latter of whom Nilsson has beat.
These prospects were good signings and will get a chance to prove themselves Saturday.
