Jared Cannonier Is Going To Obliterate Nassourdine Imavov In Saturday's UFC Main Event In Louisville

Giphy Images.

Hello fight fans! Bouncing back from a less than stellar PPV card in Newark last week saved by an incredible main event we have a damn good fight night card in front of a live crowd in Louisville! Some very under the radar matchups I'm super pumped about. 

Charles Radtke vs Carlos Prates - Banger, also Carlos Prates is firmly on "My Guy" watch. I have a list of guys I've bought stock in early that I consider my guys and will ride with to the death of me. This is a big try out for Carlos Prates. He's got crazy long reach and insane power. If he lands a big KO here and looks good doing it, he's a rocket ship to becoming my guy and being defended into the depths of hell if need be. Maybe sprinkle some round 2/round 3 Prates props. 

Thiago Moises vs Ludvoit Klein - Two of the most underrated lightweights in the world. This should be chaos from start to finish. 

Miguel Baeza vs Puna Soriano - I'm just gonna come right out and say it. I'd be shocked if someone doesn't get knocked out here. Two big time finishers who are allergic to boring fights. Baeza coming off a long layoff and Soriano moving down in weight for the first time. Pure carnage incoming. 

Julian Marquez vs Zachary Reese - Reese has 7 pro fights under his belt and has never gotten out of the first round. Need I say more? The Cuban Missile (Marquez nickname) has a never say die attitude and will go out on his shield. Love Marquez to get a big finish here but we are guaranteed violence no matter what happens. 

Dom Reyes vs Dustin Jacoby - Awesome co-main event. Two of the best strikers in the world at 205 pounds. Reyes needs a win bad after 3 KO losses in a row but came arguably the closest we've ever seen to someone beating Jon Jones. The talent is there, but is his chin still there? Jacoby was a big time kick boxer and has the power to put anyone's lights out. CERTIFIED BANGER.

Jared Cannonier vs Nassourdine Imavov - Really good fight night main event. Two guys with five round experience trying to firmly put themselves in title contention. A win for either puts them right after Sean Strickland in line for the next shot. Cannonier even has a win over Strickland in the last couple years. I LOVE Cannonier as an underdog here. I don't understand this line. Better striker, more power, more experience, good takedown defense and better cardio. What am I missing? Give me Cannonier on the ML as an underdog and a sprinkle on KO/TKO and round 4/5 props. 

On this week's episode of Spinning Backfist we recapped UFC302, broke down and gave our picks for every single fight on this weekend's UFC Louisville card (dogs are gonna be barking) and talked everything going on swirling around Conor McGregor and his (hopefully) upcoming fight in a few weeks!

Our guy Lee is boots on the ground in Louisville covering everything going on this week with the fights make sure to follow Spinnin Backfist for all the updates! He's been at the weigh-ins all morning, will be at ceremonial weigh-ins tonight and the fights and post fight presser tomorrow night!
