With the removal of Max Holloway as the co-main event at UFC 226, Felder v. Perry has been promoted to the main card. I am adding this quick hitter to preview that matchup as well!
Paul “The Irish Dragon” Felder (15-3) vs. Mike “Platinum” Perry (11-3)
While Felder has felt a little slighted by the UFC lately, he has now been promoted to the main card of UFC 226. The Irish Dragon enters the contest riding a three-fight win streak that saw two first round (T)KOs and a second round KO. Perry, however, is currently on a two-fight skid, losing those last two via unanimous decision. Platinum is an electric fighter though, finishing all eleven of his fights by (T)KO! Felder has a slightly more diverse win portfolio, one that does include ten (T)KOs, one submission, and four decisions. With 21 of 26 fights ending by way of KO, this is a matchup that fight fans can truly enjoy! I give the slight edge to Felder, as he goes out to show everyone why he should be a staple on main cards!
PREDICTION: Paul Felder (2nd Rnd) TKO
