UFC 258 Early Prelims preview

We have the hyped battle of former teammates in our UFC 258 Main Card, but there are some sleeper fights on the undercards that shouldn’t be underestimated. Let’s take a look at the UFC 258 Early Prelims and our best bets and predictions.

Women’s Flyweight: Gillian Robertson (+114) vs Miranda Maverick (-134)

Our first fight of the evening features Gillian Robertson (9-5-0, 5-3-0 UFC) taking on Miranda Maverick (10-2-0, 1-0-0 UFC). This looks to be a potential grappling match, as both fighters have a combined 12 wins and one loss by submission. Robertson is coming off a December 2020 unanimous decision loss to Taila Santos, who is currently standing at 17-1 professionally. Maverick is coming off a TKO doctor’s stoppage win in her October 2020 UFC debut against Liana Jojua, who is standing at 8-4 professionally. Robertson is 1-1 by KO/TKO, 6-1 by submission, and 2-3 by decision in her career. Maverick is 1-0 by KO/TKO, 6-0 by submission, and 4-1 by decision. Taking a trip down narrative street, Robertson’s one submission loss was via armbar, and two of Maverick’s six submission wins have been finished by armbar, so we know it is in her repertoire. We are interested to see where the majority of the fight takes place, whether on the ground or on the feet. All in all, we like Maverick at the moneyline to keep surging in her young career.

Miranda Maverick to win


Welterweight: Gabe Green (-135) vs Philip Rowe (+115)

Our second fight of the evening is another even one odds-wise as Gabe Green (9-3-0, 0-1-0 UFC) takes on Philip Rowe (7-2-0, 0-0-0 UFC) in a welterweight bout. Green’s last fight was his UFC debut in a May 2020 unanimous decision loss to Daniel Rodriguez, which ended a six-fight winning streak. Rowe is coming off an August 2019 KO/TKO win over Leon Shahbazyan on Dana White’s Contender Series. Both men are true mixed martial artists, having wins by knockout and submission on their records. Green specifically is 3-2 by KO/TKO, 6-0 by submission, and 0-1 by decision in his career. Rowe is 3-1 by KO/TKO, 4-0 by submission, and 0-1 by decision as well. We believe reach could factor into this fight, as Rowe has a 7.5-inch reach advantage on top of a five-inch height advantage. We are leaning towards the slight underdog in this fight, and we also think there is a good chance this one won’t go to the cards.

Philip Rowe to win


Featherweight: Ricky Simon (-241) vs Brian Kelleher (+206)

In our third and final fight of the early prelims, we have Ricky Simon (17-3-0, 5-2 UFC) taking on Brian Kelleher (22-11-0, 6-4 UFC) in a featherweight bout. Simon is having a quick turnaround after a January 2021 submission victory over Gaetano Pirello, while Kelleher’s last fight was a September 2020 submission victory over Ray Rodriguez. Both men are 5’6”, but Simon has a three-inch reach advantage in this fight. Simon is 6-1 by KO/TKO, 2-1 by submission, and 9-1 by decision in his career. Kelleher is 8-1 by KO/TKO, 10-6 by submission, and 4-4 by decision. We are riding with the favorite, whose only two UFC losses have come to Rob Font (who recently beat Marlon Moraes) and Uriah Faber. With this being said, we like the odds about this fight being done and dusted before round three.
