Tagir Ulanbekov -210 vs Nate Maness +175
Based on physical aspects the odds should be reversed. 14-2 Nate Maness has a 72-inch reach and is 5’ 10”. 13-2 Tagir Ulanbekov is 5’ 7” and sports a 70-inch reach.
Both are wrestlers. Maness lost his last bout to undefeated Umar Nurmagomedov via unanimous decision. Ulanbekov fell to Tim Elliott via unanimous decision in his last.
Maness has a chance. Maness is 5-1 via TKO / KO. If Nate can keep the fight off the mat, he can pull off the upset victory.

Chase Sherman -125 vs Josh Parisian +105
Parisian versus Sherman should be a competitive bout. The slight underdog heads to the Octagon with a 15-5 record. Sherman’s record is 16-10.
Both are 6’ 4”. Parisian has a 1-inch reach advantage. Josh won his last bout via TKO against Alan Baudot. Chase knocked out Jason Vanderaa in his last bout.
Sherman’s victory broke a 4-match losing streak. The question is does Chase keep it going or will Parisian help put Sherman back onto the loser’s path. Sometimes, it takes a single contest for an MMA fighter to turn it around. Sherman wins his second straight.
