Marlon Vera

Marlon Vera (18-7) has won two straight bouts inside the cage with his most recent victory coming over Frankie Edgar via TKO. 'Chito' is 3-2 in his last five trips to the octagon.

Andrei Arlovski

Andre Fili

Andre Fili (21-8) will be hoping to pick up his first win since June 2020 when he beat Charles Jourdain via split-decision. His most recent outing against Daniel Pineda in June 2021 ended in a no-contest due to an accidental eye poke.

Joanderson Brito

Joanderson Brito's (12-3) unbeaten run of 12 fights came to an end in his promotional debut last January. A product of Dana White's Contender Series, 'Tubarao' will be looking to get back to winning ways when he takes on Fili at UFC Fight Night this Saturday.

Jared Gordon

Jared Gordon (18-4) will have the opportunity to extend his win streak to four when he takes on Grant Dawson at the upcoming UFC Fight Night event. All of Gordon's last three wins have come via decision.

Grant Dawson

Grant Dawson (17-1) is unbeaten in his last nine bouts, although he stumbled to a draw in his most recent outing last October. A product of Dana White's Contender Series, 'KGD' has yet to taste defeat in the UFC.

Darren Elkins

Darren Elkins (26-10) hasn't had much success in his recent octagon appearances, winning only two of his past seven bouts. In his last UFC outing, 'The Damage' suffered a round-one TKO loss to Cub Swanson in December 2021.

Tristan Connelly

At UFC Fight Night this Saturday, Tristan Connelly (14-7) will have the opportunity to bounce back from his recent loss to Pat Sabatini last April. 'Boondock' joined the UFC ranks in September 2019 and has a 1-1 record in the promotion.

Krzysztof Jotko

Krzysztof Jotko (23-5) picked up a split-decision victory over Misha Cirkunov in his latest bout in October 2021. The 32-year-old will be hoping to register his second straight win when he takes on another veteran in Gerald Meerschaert.

Gerald Meerschaert

Gerald Meerschaert (34-14) is riding a three-fight win streak in the UFC, with all of them coming by way of submission. 'GM3' will now have the opportunity to stretch his win streak to four when he opens the main card opposite Jotko in this Saturday's Fight Night event.
