Another week means another day of going over the next UFC event. Today, we want to give you a trio of fights that we REALLY like on the undercard. Read below as we highlight a few of the fights coming up in UFC Fight Night 133!

Alejandro Perez (-210) vs. Eddie Wineland (+175)

The 28-year-old Perez has had a very busy career, as this will already be his 29th fight. He has gone 21-6-1 thus far, and comes in with a three-game winning streak. He only ended up with a three-month layoff between fights, giving him an edge, as he looks for win number 22.

His opponent is 34-year-old Eddie Wineland. He is fighting his 37th fight already, and has gone 23-12-1. This will, however, be his first fight in fifteen months, and he hasn’t win since December of 2016. It will be important for him to get off to a quick start.

PREDICTION: Perez picks up his 22nd victory as he disposes of Wineland. He is very good on the attack, and will take his opponent down.

Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski (-355) vs. Darren Elkins (+175)

The 29-year-old Volkanovski has been an absolute beast in the ring. He has gone 17-1 in his first eighteen fights, and has landed 62{b82e5e56a9812bad28ea5aefced1964b6e85658d6da818d3ac352b08d0d307d2} of his strikes. He is tough to land an attack against when he starts to get going, and he will be a force in this fight. He is called “The Great” for a reason.

On the other side is 34-year-old Darren “The Damage” Elkins, who has gone 25-5 in his fighting career. He has won seven consecutive fights, with his loss coming back on December 20, 2014, against Hacran Dias. He only lands 37{b82e5e56a9812bad28ea5aefced1964b6e85658d6da818d3ac352b08d0d307d2} of his strikes, but gets a ton of opportunities. Neither of these fighters should be taking their opponents lightly.

Prediction: Volkanovski will be ending the 7-game winning streak of Ekins tonight, as he claims victory number nineteen in his still early career. He will be on the prowl from the outset.

Kurt Holobaugh (-200) vs. Raoni Barcelos (+170)

For the 33-year-old Holobaugh, this will be the 22nd fight of his career. Ha has gone 17-4 in his career, but his last three fights have included two losses and one overturned contest. There is a lot of improvement to be made, as he is in a big slump. He has landed 45{b82e5e56a9812bad28ea5aefced1964b6e85658d6da818d3ac352b08d0d307d2} of his strikes, a number that he will need to improve upon.

His opponent is 31-year-old Raoni Barcelos, who has gone 11-1 in his fighting career so far. The Brazilian has gone a good job of finishing his opponents, and has gotten off to strong starts. On order to defeat Holobaugh, his defenses will have to be strong.

Prediction: Holobaugh will be picking up his eighteenth win of the season, as he claims victory once more. Loss number two for Barcelos is coming.
