Poirer’s run as a lightweight champion (interim) didn’t last long, as what followed his win over Max Holloway in April 2019 was a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in September of the same year. Prior to that loss, Poirier (25-6-0) was on a roll, putting together four wins in a row, three via KO/TKO. Poirier can get things done either standing up or down on the mat, as he has a 13-2 TKO/KO record and a 6-2 submission slate. It’s the same thing with Hooker (21-8-0), who has the power to stop opponents (10-1 TKO/KO record) and the skill to force opponents into tapping out (7-2 submission record). Hooker has won all his past three fights.
Poirier wins via decision.
After going 1-2 in 2019, Perry (13-6-0) is ready to make this year better inside the octagon, as he’s all set to make his first fight of the year this coming Saturday. Perry won against Alex Oliveira last year before losing his final two fights of 2019 against Vicente Lique (split decision) and Geoff Neal (TKO). One thing about Perry is that he’s not afraid to bang, as 11 of his 13 wins were either TKO or KO. He won his first nine fights via TKO/KO. Gall (6-2-) is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, who’s never scored a knockout win yet, but has a 5-0 submission record. He won over Salim Toubari via unanimous decision in hist last fight.
Perry wins via KO.
With Ian Heinisch’s withdrawal, Brendan Allen got a new opponent to prepare for in the form of Kyle Daukaus. Allen, a former champion in the Legacy Fighting Alliance, is undefeated (2-0) so far in his UFC career. After submitting Kevin Holland last October, Allen stopped Tom Breese in the first round of their fight last March. Allen (14-3-0) has five KO wins and has an 8-1 submission record. This fight will be Daukaus’ first in the UFC. He’s undefeated (9-0-0) so far in his MMA career and was a former champion in the Cage Fury Fighting Championships. Daukaus is a dangerous opponent on the mat, with an 8-0 submission record.
Allen wins via decision.
Villante is looking for some consistency, as he’s oscillated between losing and winning over his last four fights. In his last fight, Villante (17-11-0) got a TKO loss at the hands of Michal Oleksiejczuk right in the first round of their fight way back in February of last year. After a long layoff, Villante will return to the octagon to face Greene (8-5-0), who’s lost both of his last two fights. He got TKO’d by Sergei Pavlovich last October then was submitted by Aleksei Oleinik last January.
Villante wins via decision.
