UFC FIGHT PASS PRELIMS (6:30PM ET/3:30PM PT)
CHASE HOOPER (9-1-1) VS. PETER BARRETT (11-4-0)
Andrews: Both fighters came up short in their last bouts, but I am expecting the younger Hooper to grind out a decision here using his grand game.
Andrews Prediction: Chase Hooper via UD
TECIA TORRES (11-5-0) VS. SAM HUGHES (5-1-0)
Andrews: Torres is fast and technical and has lost four of her last five but to top compeitiion. I think she gets another decision here.
Andrews Prediction: Tecia Torres via UD
GAVIN TUCKER (12-1-0) VS. BILLY QUARANTILLO (15-2-0)
Andrews: Should be a good tilt. Tucker seems to use intelligent aggression these days and if he doesn’t gas, should edge Billy.
Andrews Prediction: Gavin Tucker via UD
CUB SWANSON (26-11-0) VS. DANIEL PINEDA (27-13-0 2NC)
Andrews: Everyone knows the book on Cub is to get him to the ground. Pineda is going to try, but I think Cub has a few tricks up his sleeve.
Andrews Prediction: Cub Swanson via UD
JUNIOR DOS SANTOS (21-8-0) VS. CIRYL GANE (6-0-0)
Andrews: Junior has lost his last three fights by TKO, and he will lose this one by submission? Gane gets it to the ground and shocks ‘Cigano’ by getting the tap.
Andrews Prediction: Ciryl Gane via submission
KEVIN HOLLAND (20-5-0) VS. RONALDO SOUZA (26-8-0, 1NC)
Andrews: Souza is old and slowing down. Holland should be able to pile up the points with his striking.
Andrews Prediction: Kevin Holland via UD
RENATO MOICANO (14-3-1) VS. RAFAEL FIZIEV (8-1-0)
Andrews: Tough one to call, but I think the experience of Moicano gives him the slim edge. Another grinder.
Andrews Prediction: Renato Moicano via UD
MACKENZIE DERN (9-1-0) VS. VIRNA JANDIROBA (16-1-0)
Andrews: Interesting bout. Who can reign supreme on the ground? Whose striking is better? Verna tries to use her striking to get the win, while Mackenzie tries to get the tap. A coin toss on the ground, but I think Mackenzie gets it.
Andrews Prediction: Mackenzie Dern via submission
TONY FERGUSON (25-4-0) VS. CHARLES OLIVEIRA (29-8-0, 1NC)
Andrews: Tony needs to get back to being Tony. If he fights like he did against Justin, Charles will win. I expect Tony to be Tony.
Andrews Prediction: Tony Ferguson via UD
DEIVESON FIGUEIREDO (20-1-0) VS. BRANDON MORENO (18-5-1)
Andrews: It will be a tougher fight, but Deiveson gets it, once again.
Andrews Prediction: Deiveson Figueiredo via submission
