UFC Fight Night Austin (Moved To Vegas)
On the plate, tonight is UFC Fight Night Austin, Moved to Vegas thanks to Covid-19. Dustin Poirier vs Dan Hooker headline the card with what seems to be some minor bad blood between the two after Hooker called Poirier out in New Zealand. Mike Perry will have his Girlfriend in his corner in his fight with Mickey Gall. Perry recently fired his coaching staff and went full Tony Ferguson/Diego Sanchez lone ranger style. Two up and comers look to stake their name in the middleweight division Brendan Allen Vs Kyle Daukaus.
Poirier and Allen are both from Louisiana so you know we have to place the bets heavy on the fellow Cajuns.
Dustin Poirier Vs Dan Hooker
Hooker is coming off a War of a fight with Paul Felder. Edging the victory via decision. Dustin is coming off a loss via submission to Khabib Nurmagomedov. This fight on paper should be a 2020 fight of the year candidate. Id look for this one to possibly go all five rounds. These two are evenly matched and both fighters have proven to be able to go five full rounds. My pick is Dustin over Hooker.
A little tid bit is everyone who has beaten Paul Felder has lost in their next fight.
Mike Perry Vs Mickey Gall
Mike Perry is a wild man that’s legit all you need to know about him. Mickey Gall once beat a Punk named CM. I think Perry will probably win but Gall could pull an upset and the odds vegas came out with I put in a straight bet for Gall to win.
Brendan Allen Vs Kyle Daukaus
Brendan Allen called out Ian Heinisch and was able to get the fight lined up. Heinisch backed out something many weren’t surprised about. Daukaus was called up to make his UFC debut against a fellow contender series alum in Allen. Win or lose for either fighter plan on seeing them around for a while. These two are part of the next generation in the middleweight division. For this fight, I am going with Brendan Allen via KO.
