UFC Vegas 32 Main Card Preview
Cory Sandhagen vs. TJ Dillashaw
Sandhagen is currently riding a two-fight winning streak heading into this weekend’s fight night. His most recent win came by way of a heartstopping first-round flying knee knockout. He took out Frankie Edgar in February of this year and entered the bout as the favorite. His portfolio is filled with six wins by knockout, three by submission, and five by decision.
At the moment, he displays promising results with aggressive striking accuracy rated at 48% and solid grappling accuracy at 50%. Moreover, he holds wins against top guns of the bantamweight division, including Raphael Assuncao, John Lineker, and Iuri Alcantara. If he can continue his form and bring it to UFC Vegas 32, there’s a good chance that ‘The Sandman’ comes out victorious in this clash.
Dillashaw first joined the UFC in 2011, taking on John Dodson in the Ultimate Fighter 14 bantamweight tournament. He lost his debut fight, but fought his way into title contention and booked a match with Renan Barao for the UFC bantamweight title in 2014. He was the underdog but won the fight and the title, naming it the upset of the year. The American mixed martial artist held the title until January 2016 until he suffered a defeat to Dominik Cruz on a split decision.
After a year of hard work, he lined up a second title reign win over Cody Garbrandt and a rematch the following year. However, he was disallowed due to a failed drug test in 2019 and was obligated to drop the title. Following several issues in 2019 and other pre and post-match drug tests, Dillashaw fell into a rut. This time around, he makes another return to the Octagon and is ready for some action after two years of hiatus. If he can pull off another upset like what he did in his early years, this can pave the way for another title contention.
Aspen Ladd vs. Macy Chiasson
Assertive fighter Aspen Ladd looks forward to picking up the pace following a 2019 TKO win over bantamweight contender Yana Kunitskaya. Her UFC run entails a dominant stoppage against Tonya Eviner and Lina Lansberg and now aims to return to the 135-pound division stronger than ever. This is another challenge to test her skills and eventually add to her 9-1-0 record.
Meanwhile, the Ultimate Fighter Season 28 winner Macy Chiasson holds a similar record to her opponent at 8-1-0. The 29-year-old mixed martial artist wants to use this UFC co-main event fight as an opportunity to climb up the ranks. Since signing with UFC in 2018, she earned convincing victories against some of the heavy hitters of her weight division such as Shanna Young, Sarah Moras, and Marion Reneau. So far, this is Chiasson’s biggest fight of her career as she aims to join the bantamweight top 5.
Kyler Phillips vs. Raulian Paiva
Another main card event pits Kyler Phillips against Raulian Paiva in a 3-round bantamweight division fight. Phillips is looking good with a 9-win and 1-loss record, with 4 coming by way of knockout and 1 by submission. The other corner shows an imposing Raulian Paiva boasting a 20-win and 3-loss record.
He matches Phillips with 4 knockouts to his name but a better submission record with 3. Looking at the numbers alone, Phillips holds the power advantage in this bout, putting up a 56% knockout percentage that overwhelms Pavia’s 20%.
Although Phillips is the less experienced fighter of the two, having 13 fewer fights than his competitor, he is the more compelling one. Pavia has fought 19 more rounds than him at 58 and made his debut earlier in 2014. This is a clash between experience and determination, which promises another UFC Fight Night bantamweight thriller.
Darren Elkins vs. Darrick Minner
In his most recent fight, Elkins snapped his four-fight losing streak in style with a third-round submission of Luiz Eduardo Garagorri. His slump includes a string of decision losses to Nate Landwehr, Alexander Volkanovski, and Ryan Hall. He also suffered a third-round TKO loss to Ricardo Lamas. But since his last victory, ‘The Damage’ looks like a much better fighter and steps into the Octagon with a 15-8 record which he seeks to improve.
His challenger, Darrick Minner, rides a two-fight winning streak after dropping his UFC debut to Grand Dawson last year. He recovered with a swift guillotine choke submission just 52 seconds into the fight against Canadian prospect T.J. Laramie. This was followed by a unanimous decision win over Charles Rosa earlier this year. In his last five fights, Minner managed to seal the deal four times and currently holds a 26-11-0 record.
Miranda Maverick vs. Maycee Barber
Another women’s division fight taking place in this UFC Fight Night features two flyweight division prospects, Miranda Maverick and Maycee Barber. The latter seeks to rebound from two straight unanimous decision losses in January 2020 and February 2021 against former UFC women’s flyweight title challenger Roxanne Modafferi and then followed by another one against Mexico’s Alexa Grasso.
We still see hesitation coming out of Barber after the 23-year-old American mixed martial artist injured her knee and was left out of action for 13 months before returning this year. She keeps her head up high and is banking on a better showing this weekend.
On the other hand, Maverick is off to a hot start in her UFC debut when she took down Liana Jojua by TKO just before the first round bell rang. She returned to action shortly after in March at UFC 260 and secured a unanimous decision victory against Gillian Robertson. So far, Miranda Maverick enters the contest as the favorites. But do not overlook Barber’s capabilities and persistence to break out of her losing streak.
Mickey Gall vs. Jordan Williams
Mickey Gall went through a series of ups and downs in his last six fights, winning a second-round fight against Sage Northcutt. The New Jersey native dropped his first professional fight to Randy Brown before snapping back with a first-round submission win over George Sullivan. Since then, the 28-year-old pro endured losses to Diego Sanchez and Mike Perry. But before heading into this clash, he earned a tough decision win over Salim Touahri.
Jordan Williams had to fight his way to a UFC contract before Dana White finally handed him one. He made his Octagon debut less than a month after signing and shouldered a unanimous decision to Nassourdine Imavov. On Saturday night, ‘Bomaye’ made his way back to the welterweight division for the first time since 2016 where he endured a first-round knockout loss to Dwight Grant. Williams hopes to improve his 9-4-0 professional record as he enters the stage as the match favorite.
