Nine fights make up the prelim card for UFC on ABC 2 this Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada. There are plenty of Fight of the Night contenders in this one, along with a handful of UFC debuts. Let’s take a look at the best bets on offer for this weekend’s UFC Fight Night prelims.

Impa Kasanganay (-280) vs Sasha Palatnikov (+240)

Impa Kasanganay (8-1-0, 1-1 UFC) is making his return to the octagon after being on the end of a highlight knockout by Joaquin Buckley in October of 2020. He is entering as the favorite against Sasha Palatnikov (6-2-0, 1-0 UFC), who is coming off of an impressive TKO victory in November of 2020 as a +400 underdog. Palatnikov is an impressive boxer who can finish the fight on the feet early, while Kasanganay generally keeps a pace and outlasts his opponents when it comes to decision. We like Kasanganay in this spot to get back on track with a win by decision.

Impa Kasanganay by points decision


Da Un Jung (-140) vs William Knight (+120)

The second fight of our prelim card brings in light heavyweight hopefuls Da Un Jung (13-2-1, 2-0-1 UFC) and William Knight (9-1-0, 1-0 UFC). Both fighters have strong hands, especially Un Jung on the feet and William Knight on the ground. Da Un Jung showed his ability to walk fighters down the cage in his bout with Sam Alvey back in October of 2020. The fight ended in a draw. Jung uses his pressure and power to put his opponents out and his 12 career finishes prove it to be true. Knight is built like a gorilla at 5’10” and can manipulate opponents in the ground and pound game. We saw this in his September 2020 unanimous decision victory over Aleksa Camur. This looks to be an entertaining fight, and we have Knight straight up here.

William Knight to win


Jordan Griffin (+114) vs Luis Saldana (-134)

Our first featherweight matchup brings in Jordan Griffin (18-8-0, 1-3 UFC) against UFC debutant Luis Saldana (14-6-0, 0-0 UFC). Griffin is looking to bounce back from a loss to Youssef Zalal by unanimous decision in June of 2020. He is an aggressive fighter with a strong grappling game, looking to pressure his opponent and get a handle on them. Griffin has nine submission victories in his career. He faces a tough task in Saldana, who is entering his debut after an impressive TKO finish on Dana White’s Contender Series in November of 2020. Saldana is an impressive boxer who seems to have room to grow with his deceptive kicking ability. We like Saldana to win it inside the distance, as his last four contests have ended that way.

Luis Saldana inside the distance


Hunter Azure (+140) vs Jack Shore (-160)

It is interesting that Jack Shore (13-0-0, 2-0 UFC) isn’t a bigger favorite here. He pulled through as a -800 market elect in his last bout in July of 2020, so don’t be surprised if the closing odds for him are much shorter. Shore is skilled enough on the feet to set himself up for a takedown, which is what sets up his elite grappling game. Hunter Azure (9-1-0, 2-1 UFC) enters as the underdog but may have the qualities to compete with Shore. He is a skilled wrestler with some power on the feet, and he landed a nice knockdown in his unanimous decision victory over Cole Smith in September 2020. This has the makings of a very competitive fight if Azure can ward off the Shore submission game, especially the rear-naked choke. Our official pick is Jack Shore by submission; the odds are too good to ignore.

Jack Shore by submission


Yorgan De Castro (-310) vs Jarjis Danho (+260)

This clash of heavyweights sees Jarjis Danho (5-1-1, 0-1-1 UFC) making his return to the octagon after a nearly five-year layoff. He is facing off against Yorgan De Castro (6-2-0, 1-2 UFC), who is looking to break a two-fight skid. Both fighters are known to have knockout power, but De Castro’s is a little more recent, having his last finish take place in 2019. Danho’s last victory took place in May of 2015, so he is hoping for a big return. Danho succeeds when closing the distance near the cage, and De Castro seems to prefer a more open area for striking in the center. We are leaning towards De Castro inside the distance, but the over on 1.5 rounds looks the best play.

Over 1.5 rounds


John Makdessi (+165) vs Ignacio Bahmondes (-190)

Our first lightweight bout features John Makdessi (17-7-0, 10-7 UFC) and UFC debutant Ignacio Bahmondes (11-3-0, 0-0 UFC). Makdessi is a more seasoned striker who likes to control the pace in the octagon with his movement. He is looking to bounce back from a May 2020 loss. Bahmondes is 35-0-1 as an amateur kickboxer and put it on display with a front-kick knockout on Dana White’s Contender Series in November of 2020. If Makdessi had more of a grappling background, we could lean him, but since he doesn’t, the pick is Bahmondes by KO/TKO.

Ignacio Bahmondes by KO/TKO


Erin Blanchfield (+210) vs Norma Dumont (-250)

UFC debutant Erin Blanchfield (6-1-0, 0-0 UFC) is 21 years of age and comes over to the promotion from Invicta. She has a solid all-around game with a very capable ground-and-pound skillset, which showed in her last bout in July of 2020. Her opponent, former featherweight Norma Dumont (6-1-0, 1-1 UFC), enters this fight after a dominant win in her first bantamweight bout. She is a heavy-hitting bantamweight who can overwhelm her opponents, but we like Blanchfield to start her UFC career on the right note.

Erin Blanchfield to win


Mateusz Gamrot (-227) vs Scott Holtzman (+192)

Our second lightweight bout of the night features Polish wrestler Mateusz Gamrot (17-1-0, 0-1 UFC) facing off with Scott Holtzman (14-4-0, 7-4 UFC), a fighter with a strong chin and solid foundation. He also has the ability to put fighter down with his power. Both fighters are looking to get back in the win column after losing their last fight. Gamrot could control this fight from end to end if his wrestling can succeed. Our gut here is telling us to go with Gamrot by points decision, as Holtzman will be hard to finish.

Mateusz Gamrot by points decision


Jim Miller (+195) vs Joseph Solecki (-230)

Our prelim headliner features veteran of the game Jim Miller (32-15-0, 21-14 UFC) taking on Joseph Solecki (10-2-0, 2-0 UFC). This looks to be a battle of grappling in our opinion, and we hope it goes that way. Between the two men, they have a combined 25 victories via submission. Miller is looking to get back in the win column in the promotion, while Solecki is working to stay undefeated in the UFC. If the fight goes to decision, Solecki will likely take it; but if it comes down to a finish through one’s jiu-jitsu skills, Miller’s experience will hold. We are taking Miller by submission.

Jim Miller by submission
