It’s back to base camp for the UFC, returning to the APEX in Las Vegas after four successful tours on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi for UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Shahbazyan. The return to Vegas event features 11 fights with a middleweight clash between Derek Brunson (20-7) and Edmen Shahbazyan (11-0) the headliner. There were several changes to the fight card before the final stamp of approval. The biggest was the featured bout moving into the main event slot. The fight will remain a three-round affair with the unbeaten Shahbazyan a big favorite on the opening line.  Bookmaker.eu offers a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000)

The co-main event in the five-fight main card pits top-10 women’s flyweight contenders Joanne Calderwood (14-4) against Jennifer Maia (17-6-1). Calderwood had a fight with reigning champ Valentina Shevchenko lined up, but those plans fell apart. Instead of waiting for another chance to tangle with Shevchenko, Calderwood jumped at the opportunity to fill the void left by Viviane Araujo. 

The welterweight bout between Vicente Luque (18-7-1) and Randy Brown (12-3) promises to be entertaining. Both men have a knack for finishing their fights early with 16 of Luque’s 18 pro wins coming by stoppage. Brown, meanwhile, faces a ranked opponent for the first time as he continues his ascent up the division ladder.

Derek Brunson (20-7, 10 KOs, 3 SUBs) vs. Edmen Shahbazyan (11-0, 9 KOs, 1 SUB)

Elevated to headliner status, this match will remain at three rounds. However, given that both men like to end their fights early we probably won’t need that much time. Brunson has been a mainstay in the rankings; good enough to fend off the up-and-comers and slightly below the elite level in the division. His losses have come against stellar competition, making his price a little surprising. He fell to current champ Israel Adesanya and former champs Anderson Silva and Robert Whittaker. Through his first four fights in the octagon Shahbazyan looks like a title contender. He worked his way up the ranks winning his first six pro fights by first round knockout. A KO of Antonio Jones in the Contender Series earned him a UFC deal. He went the distance with Darren Stewart in his UFC debut before finishing off his last three opponents in the first round. His aggressiveness has yet to be matched by anyone in the ring and I don’t see Brunson being up to the challenge.

UFC Pick: Edmen Shahbazyan / TKO / 2nd Round

Vicente Luque (18-7-1, 10 KOs, 6 SUBs) vs. Randy Brown (12-3, 6 KOs, 4 SUBs)

Any fight involving the Brazilian Luque has a good chance of finishing inside the distance. Match him against another over-aggressive fighter and you have the potential for plenty of fireworks. Luque had his six-fight win streak end in a unanimous decision to Stephen Thompson at UFC 244. He’s still firmly entrenched in the welterweight rankings bouncing back from that loss with a third-round stoppage of Niko Price earlier this year. With no regard for his own well-being, Luque pummeled Price for the second time in his last eight fights. Brown is coming off a pair of stoppage wins after he was KO’d by Price in 2018. Having yet to face a ranked opponent, this is a chance for Brown to do some damage in the division. Brown has improved his tactical game and defending against Luque while looking for an opening is the game plan.

UFC Pick: Randy Brown / TKO / 3rd Round
