Covington vs. Masvidal
Since we have described their relationship in detail in the preview of this event, we will now analyze in detail all the advantages and disadvantages of both, as well as where they have a chance. Let’s start with Colby first, as he’s ranked better on the UFC rankings. Covington is the All-American Wrestler, one of the better wrestlers in the division. With that great wrestling, Colby is the fighter who puts the most pressure on an opponent in the entire UFC, constantly moving forward, looking for contact, looking for a clinch, and a chance to win a fight. Colby was just a wrestler when he appeared in the UFC, but working with Masvidal helped him to develop his hand techniques.

Masvidal is one of the smarter hitters in the category, and in the entire UFC, and he works hard from the counter. He perfected his style in street fights, he never push forward, and he waits for the opponent to come. In the beginning in the UFC, that style was not very popular, and he lost a couple of fights, so in recent years, it has patented a new straight-line style, with solid direct and hook combo. The psychic game between the two of them is also important, whether Covington will be able to control himself, not to enter into an open exchange, at the very beginning. There, Masvidal is the master of these psychic games, in a similar way he won several previous fights.
Prediction: Over 3.5 Rounds
Rafael Dos Anjos vs Renato Moicano
We already wrote that Dos Anjos was scheduled to fight against other fighter and that Moicano came as a replacement on short notice. For UFC it was hard to find a replacement for such a quality fighter as Dos Anjos, but Moicano decided to accept the challenge, and he showed great respect towards the organization. Dos Anjos has done the whole camp and enters ready for 25 minutes of fighting in this match, and that is certainly his biggest advantage in this duel. He is a former lightweight champion, who has not been in great shape lately. He also tried out the category where he was not so good. He returned to the lightweight division with a win against Paul Fedler. It is an ideal fighter for the light category.

Moicano decided to take a risk in this match, although in a series of victories and good matches, a victory in this match would push him three steps forward at once, while defeat will not do much harm, such as Dos Anjos. From that side, there is no pressure. Moicano is in a string of two wins, the last match beating Alex Hernandez about twenty days ago. And Moicano is like Dos Anjos, a BJJ specialist, his special is Rear Naked Choke, which he pulls out of all positions.
Prediction: Rafael Dos Anjos
