T One Jackson-Wink vs. Brazil that Saturday (July 6, 2019) if Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the pay-per-view (PPV) airwaves from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Light Heavyweight emperor Jon Jones confronts the hellacious power of Thiago Santos at UFC 239’s main event, although the co-feature sees Holly Holm try to play spoiler once more against towering”champ-champ” Amanda Nunes.

UFC 239’s PPV primary card also features a pair of fascinating Welterweight tussles as well as the 205-pound introduction of Luke Rockhold opposite iron-tough veteran Jan Blachowicz. It’s rather late, so do me a favor and only imagine I’ve come up with a clever segue to the numbers.

What Went Wrong at UFC on ESPN 3?
As it happens, a fighter coming from a three-year layoff may have improved in their time off. Who knew? Amanda Ribas’ wrestling demonstrated far, far better than it was before her UFC signing, allowing her to bring her Brazilian jiu-jitsu to bear and completely dominate Emily Whitmire. This undid Jared Gordon’s great work against Dan Moret, sadly, but at least it’s only a slight loss.
UFC 239 Opportunities For The Undercard:
Predictions! UFC 239 Fight Pass ‘Prelims’ Preview
Predictions! UFC 239 ESPN ‘Prelims’ Preview
Arnold Allen (-370) vs. Gilbert Melendez (+310)
Claudia Gadelha (-225) vs. Randa Markos (+185)
Marlon Vera (N/A) vs. Nohelin Hernandez (N/A)
Song Yadong (-240) vs. Alejandro Perez (+200)
Edmen Shahbazyan (-600) vs. Jack Marshman (+450)
Ismail Naurdiev (-500) vs. Chance Rencountre (+400)
Julia Avila (-240) vs. Pannie Kianzad (+200)
Thoughts: Well, there is a good deal of statistical mismatches to sift through, and they are not especially safe mismatches to bet . Gilbert Melendez has not had a fantastic performance in years, but might conquer Arnold Allen when he receives his wrestling going. Randa Markos has a habit of overachieving. Alejandro Perez has preternatural fortune with the judges. Jack Marshman has a hell of a punch. Chance Rencountre has a similar style to someone who’s defeated Ismail Naurdiev before.
Having said all of that, Julia Avila could be the only reasonable investment. “The Raging Panda” is a complete monster moving up from a late-notice opponent who’s struggled to make weight before. I think Avila can make some sound at 135 pounds and should demonstrate that with a notable victory.
