8 Questions To Ask At Brad Williams Full Stand Up – Brad Williams Full Stand Up
Another division of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) has arise and gone, and that agency it’s time for Ultimate Angry Championship (UFC) to delay until the aftermost minute to absolutely column the fights so I can ay them.
No, I’m not absinthian at all. Why do you ask?
TUF 27 Finale, which takes abode tonight (Fri., July 6, 2018) central Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, sees Team Stipe Miocic’s Mike Trizano and Jay Cucciniello on Team Daniel Cormier’s Joe Giannetti and Brad Katona, respectively, afterwards which kickboxing standout Israel Ades takes a austere footfall up adjoin adept Brad Tavares in the capital accident of the evening.
The FOX Sports 1-televised accident will affection seven “Prelims” undercard matches, breach 4:3 amid FOX Sports 1 and Action P. Let’s get to it!
125 lbs.: Rachael Ostovich vs. Montana De La Rosa
Rachael Ostovich (4-3) represented Team Justin Gaethje as his fourth aces on TUF 26, appointment Melinda Fabian in the annular of 16 afore accident to No. 2-seed Barb Honchak in the quarterfinals. She went on to arise at the Finale adverse Karine Gevan, whom she broke via armbar in 100 abnormal flat.
She is four inches beneath than Montana De La Rosa (8-4) and will accord up six inches of reach.
Ranked No. 6 on the show, De La Rosa additionally went 1-1, in her case accident to closing best Nicco Montano. Additionally likewise, she accomplished her Finale opponent, Christina Marks, via first-round armbar, although it took her 20 abnormal best than Ostovich.
All but two of her wins accept arise via submission.
I’m acrimonious Ostovich for the simple aen that De La Rosa — admitting evidently actuality a wrestler — has a bad addiction of accepting outwrestled. Ostovich is adequately ample and should be able to authority her own wherever the action goes, abnormally aback De La Rosa has fought at Strawweight before.
De La Rosa’s acme and ability accomplish it so, so appetizing to aces her and she’s got affluence of time to advance at age 23, but her constant struggles adjoin affection action accept me apude Ostovich’s way. She outstrikes De La Rosa en avenue to a accommodation victory.
Prediction: Ostovich by accepted accommodation
155 lbs.: Luis Pena vs. Richie Smullen
Luis Pena (4-0) brought four abeyance victories and a bounded belt imilate The Ultimate Fighter, area he became Team Cormier’s fourth all-emcing pick. Unfortunately for “Violent Bob Ross,” he suffered a bottom asion in his quarterfinal achievement over Jose Martinez Jr. and had to abjure from the tournament.
He is six inches taller than Richie Smullen (3-0-1) and boasts an eight-inch ability advantage.
Smullen, angry out of SBG Ireland, went 6-2 as an abecedarian afore abutting the able ranks in 2016. He looked ertive for a solid uming on TUF, but suffered leg cramps afore his aboriginal fight, catastrophe his run afore it could start.
In accession to his three abeyance wins, he drew with above and closing BAMMA best Rhys McKee in 2017.
It’s consistently nice to see a young, angular fighter who absolutely knows how to use his height. Admitting Pena still has a few archetypal Tall Guy problems such as abetment beeline up and relying on a ysis angle with his button in the air, he’s got a lot of potential. Smullen does, as well, but that concrete alterity is added than he can affected at this point.
Pena has affection achievement to go forth with his length, acceptation Smullen is activity to attempt to accompany him to the arena alike he does administer to get inside. Afterwards seeing Smullen accept issues with addition diffuse boy in “Skeletor” McKee on the feet, I say Pena chews him up at ambit and ultimately finishes him off partway through the second.
Prediction: Pena via second-round abstruse knockout
155 lbs.: John Gunther vs. Allan Zuniga
The ability of John Gunther’s (6-0) beard wasn’t abundant to save him from Joe Giannetti, who afraid him out aloof 18 seconds. Team Cormier’s different misfortunes led to his acknowledgment in the semifinals, and admitting he survived the ambit this time, he was ogously bootless adjoin istant Mike Trizano.
He will accept two inches of acme and ability on Allan Zuniga (13-0).
“El Tigre” — Team Miocic’s penultimate aces — had a camp achievement of luck in the quarterfinals aback adversary Richie Smullen withdrew because of debilitating leg cramps. The aerial Joe Giannetti again met him in the semifinals and accomplished him with a first-round rear choke.
Four of his seven abeyance wins accept arise via submission.
Zuniga was unimpressive on the actualization and didn’t attending all that alarming afore that, but Gunther looks like he’s aloof kinda not actual acceptable at fighting. He’s apathetic and abundantly accessible to hit. And alike admitting he’s acutely appropriate from top position, he doesn’t accept the accoutrement to get there with any regularity. Hell, alike his pre-show highlight reel, which is declared to get admirers absorbed for him, showed him accepting baffled bisected to afterlife afore affairs off a comeback.
I don’t apprehend either of these men
