UFC has another Fight Night card coming up this weekend which will feature Vicente Luque vs Belal Muhammad in the main event. The winner of this fight may just be only one more fight away from getting the first title shot of his career.
However, the rest of the card is lacking in star power as there aren’t any established fighters fighting this weekend except for the main event. But, the fans have often witnessed that the cards with lesser know fighters be more entertaining.

UFC Fight Night, Caio Borralho vs Gadzhi Omargadzhiev: Fight Breakdown
Caio Borralho is coming off two back to back wins on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. His first win came in September of last year when he won via unanimous decision against Aaron Jeffery. But he earned the contract to fight in the UFC almost a month later when he finished Jesse Murray via kneebar in the first round on the same Dana White series.
His opponent, Gadzhi Omargadzhiev is also a product of DWCS. Gadzhi also submitted his last opponent via kneebar last October. He is an undefeated fighter from Russia who has great wrestling and accurate striking.
However, Caio is also an extremely skilled ground fighter. Although his wrestling may not be as good as Gadzhi’s, Caio has better BJJ skills. Hence, the Russian will have to be careful about not getting caught in a submission while grappling. The Brazilian also has a significant reach advantage which may also help him in the striking department as well.
The fight will ultimately come down to the durability of each fighter. Both of them are very well rounder and the style match-up eliminates any kind of significant advantage for either fighter. Hence, calling the fight either way is a hard thing to do.
