Up-and-coming Lightweights try to climb the ladder Saturday when Lando Vannata whose only loss came at the hands of Tony Ferguson takes on David Teymur who has won five straight since dropping his career debut.
Vannata arrives off a Knockout of the Year candidate win against the tough John Makdessi while Teymur has won both of his fights in the organization by knockout.
Teymur is a pure striker while Vannata fancies himself as a ground technician.
While Teymur has shown some impressive overall toughness and striking ability it is Vannata that has been in there and succeeded against the better competition.
His more well-rounded skillset will be the difference here – the threat of being taken to the ground will likely open Teymur up to some heavy shots and if this fight happens to go to the ground Teymur is seriously overmatched.
This may be the easiest fight on the Main Card to call.
MMA Betting Pick: Lando Vannata -250
