Reinaldo Ekson (17-5-0) vs Mike Barnett (10-3-0)
Ekson and Barnett headline this event for good reason. They both have the most experience compared to everyone else on the card. Both fighters can strike and they do it often. Ekson might have the edge if the battle takes place on the ground.
Edwin Cooper Jr. (5-1-0) vs Troy Lamson (13-4-0)
Lamson takes the call on short notice to join this event and battle Cooper Jr. Lamson has lost two straight against quality opponents, so hopefully, he is ready for another one. As for Cooper, he has competed in the LFA and has engaged in solid bouts.
Do Gyeom Lee (8-4-0) vs Boston Salmon (7-3-0)
Lee has posted some solid battles in the UAE Warriors, but his results have been mixed throughout his career. Salmon won his Dana White’s Contender Series bout back in 2017 but lost in his two appearances on UFC cards.
Scottie Stockman (3-1-0) vs Brahyan Zurcher (2-0-0)
Stockman is a solid boxer that has a three-fight winning streak coming into this one. Zurcher has mixed amateur results, but his 2-0 start looks promising with two early submission finishes.

Potential Winning Picks
Reinaldo Ekson (-300) should be able to handle himself accordingly here. Barnett, for some reason, has typically fought people with losing records and not faced a serious opponent. This could potentially end by submission if Ekson can control the ground early.
Edwin Cooper Jr. has a new opponent on short notice. Even though this challenge is not like other professional fights, he should be fine as long as he keeps the fight standing. Lamson has had mixed results, despite having a solid-looking record, so take Cooper by decision.
Boston Salmon (+100) might have a slight edge here in his experience with the UFC. Even though those were losses, he might have learned a thing or two about tougher competition and getting better himself. Take Salmon by TKO.
Scottie Stockman (-195) looks like an appealing pick if he can keep the fight standing. Zurcher has two straight submissions, but these were against newer fighters. Take Stockman to win by decision.
