#1. Ben Saunders vs. Lyman Good:
Ben Saunders does not have the best record in the world, with 10 losses to his 22 wins. Coming into this fight, he has lost 3 of his last 5 fights. His last fight was an unfortunate loss when he faced Sergio Morae at 'Santos vs. Anders'. He submitted due to an Arm Triangle Choke. Saunders will be looking to turn things around when he faces Lyman Good in this fight.
Lyman Good, on the other hand, is coming into this fight with a better record. 19 wins and 4 losses see him in a good position. Good's last fight saw him get an unfortunate loss when Elizeu Zaleski Dos Santos defeated him. The fight was far from the best one for him, but he came really close, losing by split decision. This fight at UFC 230 will be his return fight after more than a year.
He was originally supposed to face Sultan Aliev, but Aliev pulled out due to injury and was replaced by Saunders.
