Why Should I Watch UFC Vegas 70?
Let's start with the preliminary card, before the Nikita Krylov main event. This card brings so many tough fights to pick, but I am sure you'll enjoy watching them.
The preliminary card is stacked with high-level fights, but you should pay the greatest attention to the combats between Nurullo Aliev and Rafael Alves, where the great wrestler meets the hardest hitter in the division, and Ode Osbourne vs Charles Johnson, as the Jamaican always fishes for a knockout before we see the Nikita Krylov v Ryan Spain main event.
If you prefer tactical wars, give a shot to Gabriella Fernandez vs Jasmine Jasudavicius and Joe Solecki vs Carl Deaton III. Are you expecting an entertaining KO? Jordan Leavitt is a master of slams and violent punch stoppages, his bout vs Victor Martinez is looking like a piece of cake.
Tatiana Suarez, Augusto Sakai, and Mike Mallot are very good on the ground, but they can throw toe-to-toe bombs if needed. Yet, it is hard to see Montana de la Rosa stuffing Tatiana’s takedowns, so it could be a ground-and-pound finish for the wrestling phenom. Erick Gonzalez vs Trevor Peek is a clash of two evenly-matched fighters, which could go either way, before we see Nikita Krylov-Ryan Spann.
The co-main event, Muniz vs Allen, is a clash of a submission God versus an awesome all-around fighter, while the last combat has a Sambo and ducking specialist in with one of the most dangerous strikers in the division. Nikita Krylov has better cardio than Ryan Spann, so it is hard to see Spann winning if the combat advances into round 2.
