While there are two preliminary card fights airing on Facebook, there are a total of four preliminary card fights airing on FX as well. This portion of the card features a host of UFC Ultimate Fighter alumni, including a UFC Ultimate Fighter Champion. Also, a light heavyweight veteran will see action and a pair of exciting bantamweights will see octagon time.
Kicking off the action is a bantamweight division fight as Bryan “Kid Lightning” Caraway (16-5-0) does battle with Mitch Gagnon (8-1-0). Bryan Caraway is currently undefeated in UFC competition, having defeated Dustin Neace at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale. Mitch Gagnon will be making his UFC debut in this fight and he does so riding a six fight winning streak. The majority of this fight should be contested on the ground, which is where Bryan Caraway will catch his foe with a submission.
Light heavyweights enter the octagon next as Ryan “Big Deal” Jimmo (16-1-0) battles Anthony “The Hippo” Perosh (13-6-0). Ryan Jimmo will be making his UFC debut in this fight, but he does hold victories over UFC veterans Rameu Thierry Sokoudjou, Wilson Gouveia, Mitch Clark, Marvin Eastman and Jesse Forbes. Anthony Perosh enters the fight riding a three fight winning streak, with a notable victory coming over Cyrille Diabate at UFC 138. Both fighters are entering this fight with a lot of momentum, but it will be Anthony Perosh keeping his winning streak alive.
Up next is a bantamweight division fight as “Stunning” Roland Delorme (8-1-0) takes on Francisco “Cisco” Rivera (8-2-0. Roland Delorme is currently undefeated in UFC competition, having defeated Nick Denis and Josh Ferguson. Francisco Rivera has been undefeated thus far in his second UFC run, having defeated Alex Soto at UFC On Fuel TV III. This should be an action packed encounter from start to finish, but it will be Roland Delorme keeping his UFC streak alive in the end.
Headlining this portion of the card is a middleweight division fight as Court “The Crusher” McGee (14-2-0) faces Nick “The Promise” Ring (12-1-0). Court McGee is looking to rebound from his first UFC loss, which came to Constantinos Philippou at UFC On FX II. Nick Ring is also looking to rebound from his first UFC loss, which came to Tim Boetsch at UFC 135 this past September. These are two fighters who are looking to return to their old form and it will be Court McGee doing so in this one.
