UFC Fight Night 169 Prelims Preview

Image for UFC Fight Night 169 Prelims Preview

The UFC flyweight title is once again on the line this Saturday, as division veteran Joseph Benavidez takes on Deiveson Figueiredo. But while the main event has highlight action potential, we at OTH MMA want to highlight the best actions on the UFC Fight Night 169 prelims.

Dana White’s Contender Series Alums Ready to Show Up Big

In a night filled with Dana White’s Contenders Series alums, we have Aalon Cruz taking on Spike Carlyle. A featherweight matchup filled with excitement. Cruz won his DWCS by way of Spectacular Knee TKO. Look for him to do the same this Saturday.

At Middleweight, we have fellow DWTNCS alum Brendan Allen meet Tom Breese. Breese is a five-fight UFC veteran who’s gone 4-1 with the promotion so far. Allen is making his second appearance for the company, taking a big step up in competition in a stacked division.

Heavyweights Set to Collide in the Prelims

Making our way to the Heavyweight division, we have Marcin Tybura set to take on Sergey Spivak. Tybura currently on a two-fight skid and will be looking to bounce back in a big way, with a win over the debuting Spivak.

Lightweight Fireworks to Close Out the Prelims

Luis Pena is taking on a short-notice replacement for his lightweight bout, as Steve Garcia steps up to the plate. Coming off a loss, Pena is looking to bounce back with a big win this Saturday.

Steve Garcia will be familiar with UFC as a fellow DWTNCS alum. He’d won on the series but was not awarded a contract due to missing weight. This fight promises big actions to close out the prelims.

Prelims With Big Fun Potential

As we close our preview of the prelims, it is safe to say there is many bouts that offer big potential.
