Courtney' Cast Iron' Casey

  • Age: 33
  • Nationality: USA
  • Record: 9-8-0
  • Height: 6ft 2"
  • Reach: 67"
  • Gym: Fight Ready MMA
  • Notable Gym Members: Henry Cejudo, Drakkar Klose & Tracy Cortez
  • Current Streak: 1 loss
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 3
  • Wins by Submission: 4
  • Decision Wins: 2

Do not take Cortney Casey's 9-8 record to heart; she has fought the best of the best the UFC has to offer, besides the champ herself. Robertson, Borella, Calvillo, Angela Hill, Waterson, Gadelha, and Markos, to name a few.

Casey is incredibly well-rounded and can perform against the right opponent to extraordinary ability. The question remains does Casey avoid the power and BJJ of her opponent this weekend.

Priscila Cachoeira

  • Age: 32
  • Nationality: Brazil
  • Record: 11-2-0
  • Height: 5ft 7."
  • Reach: 65"
  • Gym: Parana Vale Tudo
  • Notable Gym Members: N/A
  • Current Streak: 1 win
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 5
  • Wins by Submission: 0
  • Decision wins: 4

A certain sense of guilt should cloud the mind of UFC matchmakers, allowing Cachoeira to fight Valentina Shevchenko on her UFC could be viewed as bullying.

An excellent striking game for Cachoeira should be her focus this weekend, overcoming the relentless pressure of Casey will be her number one problem.

Fight Prediction

I'm afraid I have to disagree with the odds, there is no-way that Cortney Casey should be entering this fight as a -220 favourite. With that said, I think the volume striking and wrestling defence will be enough to get the judges to nod in her favour.

Kevin Holland vs. Makhmud Muradov

UFC Middleweight Bout

Saturday, 31st October, live from the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas.

Live Odds Here

Kevin' Trailblazer' Holland

  • Age: 27
  • Nationality: USA
  • Record: 19-5-0
  • Height: 6ft 3"
  • Reach: 81"
  • Gym: Team Lutter
  • Notable Gym Members: N/A
  • Current Streak: 3 wins
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 8
  • Wins by Submission: 6
  • Decision wins: 3

If you don't already know the name 'Kevin Holland', then you must have been living under a rock during 2020. His nickname 'Trailblazer' should not be taken lightly as the man himself has lived up to the name. Currently riding a 3-fight win streak, the young up and comer from Team Lutter is evolving from fight to fight.

Makhmud Muravod

  • Age: 30
  • Nationality: Uzbekistan
  • Record: 24-6-0
  • Height: 6ft 2."
  • Reach: 75"
  • Gym: Parana Vale Tudo
  • Notable Gym Members: N/A
  • Current Streak: 1 win
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 5
  • Wins by Submission: 0
  • Decision wins: 4

The first fighter from Uzbekistan to compete for the UFC and he's an undefeated one. Knockout power, combined with a grave grappling offence, has led Muradov right into the shark-infested waters. With a win against Kevin Holland, his trajectory could follow the path of Khamzat Chimaev.

Fight Prediction

First, I think our 'fight of the night' has already been written by the stars because when Kevin Holland and Muradov exchange in the centre of the octagon, fireworks will go off.

Muradov has heavy hands, but the durability of Holland has been 100% with zero knockout losses on his record. If the grappling does not come into play for Muradov, I can see him adding a loss to his unblemished MMA career.
