On Wednesday, the UFC held a press conference for its upcoming UFC Fight Night 147 card, which takes place March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England. A range of bouts have previously been shown with this card, including the most important event between Darren Until and Jorge Masvidal and also the co-main event between Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson, and at the press conference the UFC revealed the newest batch of preliminary bouts.
Joseph Duffy vs. Marc Diakese, UFC Fight Night 147
Lightweights Joseph Duffy and Marc Diakese meet in what ought to 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 is one of those few guys to conquer Conor McGregor. Diakese (12-3) is 2-3 in the UFC but those 3 losses have come in his last few outings. The UFC is providing Duffy a winnable fight here against a really beatable opponent in Diakese, and I totally expect Duffy to open as a sizable favored.
Nathaniel Wood vs. Jose Quinonez, UFC Fight Night 147
Growing bantamweight celebrity Nathaniel Wood will aim to keep 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 currently 4-1 in the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Teruto Ishihara. I understand Quinonez is about a nice win series but to me this is a big mismatch also it looks like a battle that the UFC reserved in order 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 in the UFC with a submission win over Hakeem Dawodu in his final outing. Ige (10-2) is 3-1 in the UFC and defeated Jordan Griffin via conclusion in his last bout. Although Ige has been strong in the UFC, I think Henry has the higher ceiling and I would tend to prefer him .
Nad Narimani vs. Mike Grundy, UFC Fight Night 147
Top featherweight prospect Nad Narimani yields 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 event. Grundy has an impressive record but given the level of competition I’d have to favor Narimani here.
Arnold Allen vs. Jordan Rinaldi, UFC Fight Night 147
And finally, there’s an interesting featherweight connection between Arnold Allen and Jordan Rinaldi. Allen (13-1) is 4-0 in the UFC and is riding a six-fight winning streak in general. But he has been frequently injured and generally fights just annually. Rinaldi (14-6) is 2-2 in the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Jason Knight. Though Allen is coming off of a long layoff I’d still have to prefer him quite heavily to conquer Rinaldi.
