Tony Gravely

Tony Gravely earned his shot to be part of the UFC roster when he won over Ray Rodriguez in Dana White’s Contender Series with a third-round knockout. His debut fight in the UFC happened in January 2020 and it was a disappointing performance leading to a submission loss over Brett Johns. Since then, he was able to bounce back by taking wins over Geraldo de Freitas Jr. and Anthony Birchak. Gravely suffered another setback as he lost to Nathan Menesses via knockout just this September 2021. This fighter loves to go for a knockout and see him try to win this bout against Oliveira with his strikes. 

Saimon Oliveira

This is going to be the first fight of Saimon Oliveira in the UFC after earning his slot by beating Jose Alday in Dana White’s Contender Series via split decision. The win was convincing enough for White to grant him a UFC contract but he now has to prove that he belongs to the world’s biggest stage. His current professional record is at 18-3 and he is a 30-year-old bantamweight fighter who stands at five-foot-eight. He has a contrasting style as he usually goes for the submission in his MMA matches. 11 of his 18 wins came from submissions while he also can throw hands having five knockout victories in his MMA career.
