A flyweight battle between Alexandre Pantoja and Deiveson Figueiredo is the marquee matchup in the four-fight preliminary round. Not because we have a pair of big name fighters, rather because the division is wide open and the winner will have a path to title contention. The prelims start at 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on ESPN. A pair of bouts gets the festivities started in the early prelims. UFC Fight Pass will carry the women’s flyweight bout between Sarah Frota and Gillian Robertson, and the men’s welterweight tilt featuring Erik Koch and Kyle Stewart.

Frankie Edgar ( 22-6-1, 6 KOs, 4 SUBs ) vs. Max Holloway ( 20-4, 10 KOs, 2 SUBs )

It looks like we might actually get to see Holloway and Edgar fight. The matchup had been scheduled twice before but both times it was shelved due to each fighter suffering an injury. The third time is finally the charm. Edgar will be hoping this bout was postponed after he sees what Holloway can do. The current featherweight champ moved up in weight class and saw his 13-match win streak ended by Dustin Poirier.

Holloway’s climb to the top is based on an adaptable fight plan. He varies his styles based on his opponent and has dominated the featherweight class. There may be some question as to how he responds after his jump and loss, but Holloway liked the way he fought against Poirier and said it didn’t feel like a loss. Holloway is 10 years younger than his opponent, stands a few inches taller and has a slight reach advantage. If he can stay away from the grappling takedowns, he’s a good bet to retain his belt.

Prediction: Max Holloway / KO

Felicia Spencer ( 7-0, 1 KO, 4 SUBs ) vs. Cris Cyborg ( 20-2, 11 KOs )

Cyborg has dominated the sport for years, but she is coming off her first loss in some time after being KO’d by Amanda Nunes in less than a minute. With Nunes wanting to defend her title, the likely opponent is the winner of this bout, so there is added motivation for Cyborg. She better not overlook Spencer, who is unbeaten with her last three wins coming via submission.

This is a huge leap for the Canadian and the odds reflect that. Spencer is a grappling specialist, but it won’t be easy to get Cyborg to the mat. If she fails, Spencer is looking at her first loss. She’s probably in a heap of trouble even if her grappling maneuvers work. We’ve never seen Cyborg following a knockout loss, but she’s had time to process that defeat to Nunes and with another crack at her on the line I doubt this one slips by.

Prediction: Cris Cyborg / Submission

Niko Price ( 13-2, 3 KOs, 3 SUBs ) vs. Geoff Neal ( 11-2, 4 KOs, 2 SUBs )

Neither fighter is ranked in the weight class, but that doesn’t mean the bout will lack excitement – just the opposite, actually. These two are aggressive fighters and they will go toe-to-toe for the duration, which probably isn’t going to be very long. Neal is the more technical fighter and he can avoid darts with his footwork. Price can take punches with the best of them and he just keeps coming. I think in the end Neal’s ability to avoid a knockout punch and his sneaky leg kicks will allow him to take down Price.

Prediction: Geoff Neal / KO
