Nikita Krylov vs Ryan Spann Preview

The recent title picture change in the Light Heavyweight division has opened the gates for ranked contenders to make a name for themselves as they look to win a title shot.

This weekend we’ve got a much-anticipated main-event bout between Nikita Krylov and Ryan Spann.

Krylov has 38 professional fights under his belt and has competed against some of the best in Glover Teixeira, Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev.

The Ukraine native has gained momentum late in his career and is looking good following two impressive wins against Alexander Gustafsson and Volkan Oezdemir in his last two fights.

He faces a tough fight this weekend against Ryan Spann who is cut from the same cloth.

Spann has been touted as one of the best emerging talents in the division but has only just started to live up to his potential.

He is coming off two impressive first-round finishes of his own against Ion Cutelaba and Dominick Reyes.

Look for this one to finish quickly. These two fighters have 45 finishes to their names between them!

UFC Fight Night Predictions & Best Bets

For our first best bet this weekend we're covering the Women's Flyweight fight between Tatiana Suarez and Montana De La Rosa.

This sees the much-awaited return of Tatiana Suarez who had been one of the most impressive Women's prospect in MMA until she had to step away from the sport to injury.

She has finished fighters like Alexa Grasso and Carla Esparza who have had big roles to play in the title pictures of their divisions.

We think she's taken a big step-down in competition in her comeback fight at odds of over 2/1 looks good value.

Our next pick comes from a ranked middleweight bout between Andre Muniz and Brendan Allen.

Muniz's easiest pathway to victory is via submission but given the BJJ credentials that Allen holds it won't be an easy task.

It’s hard to see this one finishing early. The two fighters may cancel each other's groundwork which could result in the fight getting extended to the later rounds which is our pick.

Our final pick is on the main event and we think this is going to be a quick and violent one to watch.

Ryan Spann is very dangerous and skilled wherever this fight plays out, so we love his chances considering he was an underdog in his last two wins.
