On Wednesday, the UFC held a media conference for the coming UFC Fight Night 147 card, which takes place March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England. A range of bouts have been shown with this card, including the main event between Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal and also the co-main occasion between Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson, also in the press conference the UFC shown the latest batch of preliminary spells.
Joseph Duffy vs. Marc Diakese, UFC Fight Night 147
Lightweights Joseph Duffy and Marc Diakese match in what should be an exciting connection between two strikers. NewsomeMMA first reported the news that Diakese is filling in for the injured Stevie Ray. Duffy (16-3) is 4-2 at the UFC but has not fought since a 2017 KO loss to James Vick. He’s one of those few men to defeat Conor McGregor. Diakese (12-3) is 2-3 at the UFC but these three losses came in his last few outings. The UFC is giving Duffy a winnable battle here against a really beatable opponent in Diakese, and I fully expect Duffy to open as a large favored.
Nathaniel Wood vs. Jose Quinonez, UFC Fight Night 147
Growing bantamweight star Nathaniel Wood will aim to continue his win streak when he takes on Jose Quinonez. Wood (15-3) is on a seven-fight win streak overall with submission wins in the UFC over Johnny Eduardo and Andre Ewell. Quinonez (7-2) is 4-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Teruto Ishihara. I understand Quinonez is on a nice win streak but to me this is a major mismatch also it looks like a battle that the UFC reserved as a way to get Wood an impressive win in front of the English lovers.
Danny Henry vs. Dan Ige, UFC Fight Night 147
Featherweights Danny Henry and Dan Ige will fulfill with this card. Henry (12-2) is on a five-fight win streak and is 2-0 at the UFC with a submission win over Hakeem Dawodu in his last outing. Ige (10-2) is 3-1 at the UFC and defeated Jordan Griffin via conclusion in his last bout. Though Ige has been solid in the UFC, I think Henry has the higher ceiling and I’d tend to prefer him .
Nad Narimani vs. Mike Grundy, UFC Fight Night 147
Top featherweight prospect Nad Narimani yields at this even when he takes on UFC newcomer Mike Grundy. Narimani (12-2) is really on a five-fight win series and is 2-0 thus far in the UFC. Grundy (11-1) is a veteran of ACB and is riding an eight-fight win streak into this occasion. Grundy has a remarkable record but given the degree of competition I would have to favor Narimani here.
Arnold Allen vs. Jordan Rinaldi, UFC Fight Night 147
And finally, there is an interesting featherweight connection between Arnold Allen and Jordan Rinaldi. Allen (13-1) is 4-0 at the UFC and is riding a six-fight winning streak overall. However, he’s been frequently injured and generally fights just once a year. Rinaldi (14-6) is 2-2 at the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Jason Knight. Even though Allen is coming from a long layoff I would still need to prefer him very heavily to defeat Rinaldi.
