UFC Sao Paulo Prelim Breakout Star: Augusto Sakai

By: Daniel Vreeland | September 19, 2018 The Prelim Breakout Star is a once per event article that helps fans get to know those who will be entertaining them from the undercard.

With now 12 straight correct picks, the Prelim  Breakout Star column hasn’t picked up an “L” since May in London. We’ll try to keep the good times rolling on a card that is flooded with changes,...

Mandatory Credit: Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports Name: Karolina Kowalkiewicz Opponent: Jessica Andrade Odds: +390 (bet $100 to win $390) What if I told you there was a 5-2 strawweight with losses to only Joanna Jedrzeczyk and Claudia Gadelha? What if I told you that same fighter has a win over current champion, Rose Namajunas? (Randa Markos and Felice Herrig too.) While these facts inspire confidence, it’s understandable that Karolina...

UFC 228 Prelim Breakout Star: Geoff Neal

By: Daniel Vreeland | September 6, 2018 The Prelim Breakout Star is a once per event article that helps fans get to know those who will be entertaining them from the undercard. The intention of the article is not to bring attention to the most talented fighter on the preliminary card, but rather one that the common fan may have overlooked or underestimated. Prelim Breakout Star has now hit eight in a row. Not only did Cory Sandhagen prove us right last fight card, but he also picked up a smooth 50k in the process. I’m not saying that...

By: Daniel Vreeland | August 25, 2018 Apr 14, 2018; Glendale, AZ, USA; John Moraga (blue gloves) hits Wilson Reis (red gloves) with a flying knee during UFC Fight Night at Gila River Arena. Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Name: John Moraga Opponent: Deiveson Figueiredo Odds: +140 (bet $100 to win $140) It’s kind of criminal how underrated John Moraga has been in his time.

In his last fight against...
