Amanda Ribas

Top Ten Strawweight moving up to Flyweight, Right away moving to the top facing Katlyn Chookagian.

Earn herself a Flyweight title shot with a win. Be good to see a new challenger for Valentina Shevchenko.

Moving up to Flyweight can improve her performance in the Octagon. Ribas having more energy and more of her strength.

Looking forward to watching Amanda Ribas Flyweight debut, Curious to see the improvements.

Jake Hadley

Dana White was blown away by Hadley’s Contender Series performance.

“I just have a gut feeling that this kid has something special and I broke all my own rules and didn’t listen to what they said, so hopefully I’m right on this and this kid doesn’t make a d*ckhead out of me.”

Hadley was on point against the all around talented Mitch Raposo. Displayed a dominant performance against Raposo.

Showing mixtures of TJ Dillashaw, Dominick Cruz, Petr Yan.

The former Cage Warriors, Extreme Fighting Championship Flyweight Champion can add the UFC Flyweight Title if Hadley stays focused.

UFC debut is against Allan Nascimento(16-8 record) first fight on the UFC debut.

Can’t wait for his UFC debut, Might be something special.

“I’m a very exciting fighter, I come forward and I’m aggressive on the ground; well, I’m aggressive everywhere. I expect it to be an entertaining fight but, like I said, I plan on winning by any means necessary.” Jake Hadley

Nick Maximov

Diaz Brothers known for the boxing ability, Tremendous output. Protégé of the Diaz Brothers is the complete opposite.

Dominant heavy grappler, Shooting for takedowns and controlling his opponent on the ground.

Impressed by the way Maximov fought and won against Punahele Soriano and Cody Brundage. Using grappler over and over again.

Using his Chico High School and Clackamas Community College Wrestling to his advantage.

Next opponent is former Ultimate Fighter participant, UFC Middleweight prospect Andre Petroski. Curious to see how Maximov grapples against the strong Andre Petroski.

Looking forward to the 24 year old Middleweights third fight inside the Octagon.

Carlos Candelario vs Tatsuro Taira (Fight of the Night)

Fast paced banger fight written all over it . Two hungry flyweights making there UFC debut.

Looking to put on a show. Fight of the Night prediction.

Carlos Candelario is a version of Brendan Moreno and the Diaz Brothers. He’s that dawg who will always bring his best to the Octagon.

Putting on a fast pace output against his opponents. Shooting for takedowns at the right time, Eating and countering strikes.

Candelario lost his contender series but because Dana, Shelby and Maynard saw a really talented flyweight.

Carlos I hope was running, Doing cardio work because he was gassing in the second and third round. Fix that issue and he’ll be a real problem.

Tatsuro Taira #1 Japan Flyweight is one All-Around talented fighter with a specialty on the ground.

Defeating opponents with double or triple the experience Taira has.

Taking advantage of his speed, size and athletic ability. Pressuring fighters with jabs and pushing forward against the cage.

Taira has a solid all-around game, Fearless and confident mindset.

May become the next GREAT Japanese fighters, Flyweight title run in the future.
