On Wednesday, the UFC held a press conference for its coming UFC Fight Night 147 card, which takes place March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England. A number of bouts have previously been revealed with this card, including the most important event between Darren Until and Jorge Masvidal and the co-main occasion between Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson, also in the press conference the UFC shown the latest batch of preliminary spells. Joseph Duffy vs. Marc Diakese, UFC Fight Night 147 Lightweights Joseph Duffy and Marc Diakese meet in what should be an exciting bout between two strikers. NewsomeMMA first reported the news that Diakese is filling in for the injured Stevie Ray. Duffy (16-3) is currently 4-2 at the UFC but has not fought as a 2017 KO loss to James Vick. He is among the few guys to conquer Conor McGregor. Diakese (12-3) is 2-3 at the UFC but those 3 losses came in his last few outings. The UFC is giving Duffy a winnable fight here against a very beatable competition in Diakese, and I fully expect Duffy to open as a sizable favorite. Nathaniel Wood vs. Jose Quinonez, UFC Fight Night 147 Rising bantamweight celebrity Nathaniel Wood will aim to continue his win streak when he takes on Jose Quinonez. Wood (15-3) is on a seven-fight win streak complete with entry wins at the UFC over Johnny Eduardo and Andre Ewell. Quinonez (7-2) is 4-1 at the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Teruto Ishihara. I know Quinonez is on a nice win series but to me this is a big mismatch and it looks like a battle that the UFC reserved in order to get Wood an impressive win in front of the English lovers. Danny Henry vs. Dan Ige, UFC Fight Night 147 Featherweights Danny Henry and Dan Ige will meet with this card. Henry (12-2) is really on a five-fight win streak and is 2-0 at the UFC with a submission win over Hakeem Dawodu in his final outing. Ige (10-2) is 3-1 at the UFC and defeated Jordan Griffin via conclusion in his last bout. Though Ige has been solid from the UFC, I believe Henry has the higher ceiling and I’d tend to favor him . Nad Narimani vs. Mike Grundy, UFC Fight Night 147 Top featherweight prospect Nad Narimani returns at this when he chooses on UFC newcomer Mike Grundy. Narimani (12-2) is really on a five-fight win series and is 2-0 thus much in the UFC. Grundy (11-1) is a veteran of ACB and is riding an eight-fight win streak into this event. Grundy has a remarkable record but given the degree of competition I’d have to prefer Narimani here. Arnold Allen vs. Jordan Rinaldi, UFC Fight Night 147 And lastly, there is an intriguing featherweight bout between Arnold Allen and Jordan Rinaldi. Allen (13-1) is currently 4-0 at the UFC and is riding a six-fight winning streak in general. However, he has been hurt and generally fights just annually. Rinaldi (14-6) is 2-2 in the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Jason Knight. Even though Allen is coming from a very long layoff I would still need to prefer him quite heavily to defeat Rinaldi.
