On October 16, another UFC fight night will be held at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The headliners of the event are famous former title challengers Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori. However, since all the attention is about these athletes and Fedor Emelianenko’s return to the Bellator, there are many great talents on the card.

Grant Dawson

Grant Dawson

Only 27 years old fantastic prospect from Glory MMA. 17 victories already and 11 of them via submissions, 4 via TKO/KO. He signed in the UFC 2 years ago after earning the victory in Dana White Contender Series and, since his debut, he earned 5 wins in a row. In addition to that, he also has 8 victories as an amateur, so totally he has 25 victories in MMA.

He will face 32 years old fighter who has a 4-3 record in the UFC. 2 out of 6 losses are via submissions, and I think Grant will add another submission loss to his rival record.

The victory of Grant has the odds around 1.25, but early victory odds are around 2.5, which is huge.

Zviad Lazishvili

Zviad Lazishvili took this fight on 3 days short notice and still opens this bout as the favorite, with an odd around 1.5-1.7. he is a former LFA champion with massive experience in grappling. He has 9 submission victories out of 12.

Jonathan Martinez is an outstanding fighter, with lots of KO victories, but Lazishvili will have a huge advantage on the ground. Well, still Zviad lost 9 KG in 2 days, which is a crazy fact. I can guarantee that it will affect his cardio and stamina, but I believe this fight will end early; Lazishvili will earn submission victory, or Jonathan will earn KO victory because, after 2 rounds, Lazishvili should two rounds be very tired because of cutting so much weight in 2 days.

Alex Caceres

How can you not love Seung Woo Choi? He started his UFC career with 2 losses streak, but still found the way out, earned the victory against Suman Mokhtarian after that defeated one of the talented fighters Youssef Zalal and finally earned KO victory against Julian Erosa. But Alex Caceres is one of the most “full of surprises” fighters.

 Alex has a record with 18 victories and 12 defeats, and someone might think, “Jesus, he has 12 losses, no way he is going to win”, but let me tell you something. Alex is on 4 winning streaks. The losses of Alex are via submissions, but Woo Choi does not have any submission victory. Alex is the man who fought a very close fight with Yair Rodriguez and lost via split decision.

 And the winning of Alex Caceres has the odds of 3.2.  Yeah, he is a huge underdog, and there is lots of chance of him losing, but still. If I had to bet on one of these fighters, I would bet on Alex Caceres.
