The first battle of the Main Card features Yancy Medeiros taking on Erick Silva in what is essentially a PK matchup to start things off.
Both Medeiros and Silva look to get back on track following tough losses in their previous fights.
Medeiros has looked better of the two overall, however recently things have kind of fallen off for him, which puts a lot of pressure on this fight.
He’s dropped back to back matches to Jim Miller and Dustin Poirier, two top tier competitors.
On the Silva side of things, he was supposed to be the next up and coming. However, he has really tapered off since his hot start to his career. He has gone just 3-2 in his last 5, needing a win here if anything to get his credibility back.
This match will be decided by where it takes place. Medeiros has the clear cut advantage on the ground, while Silva would love for this to stay up in the air. This is going to be back and forth all fight long.
Look for Medeiros to get Silva on the ground when it’s all said and done.
