Edson Barboza

The 36-year-old Edson Barbosa has been struggling to make ends meet at the end of his storied career. He has lost four of his last two fights but there are signs that he has a lot left in his tank, especially after his knockout win over Shane Burgos in UFC 262. But still, his age is showing as his most recent matchup with Giga Chikadze with a knockout loss by the third round. Barboza loves to go for the knockout and he still has that bite in his hands when opponents are not careful. If his power won’t dent Mitchell, expect him to defend and score points through the judges’ scorecards. 

Bryce Mitchell

Bryce Mitchell has been living up to his ring name as “Thug Nasty” as he won all the five matches given to him by the UFC. However, analysts see that Mitchell has a hard time finishing his matches and among his fights, only one ended early and that was against Matt Styles through submission. Mitchell has a contrasting style as compared to Barbosa and will look to seal the victory on the ground. He will have to be creative to put the veteran fighter on the floor as his opponent has knocked out grapplers during his time. Nonetheless, if Mitchell can control the match even without finishing, he can actually win it like he always did in the UFC.
