Main Card

Gabriel Silva

Gabriel Silva is a young 25-year-old professional bantamweight MMA fighter that fights out of Team Nogueira. He is an upcoming fighter that owns an 8-1 record and he is just coming off from the first loss in his professional career. “Gabito” is a resilient fighter as his last loss was forced to go to the judge’s scorecards and he lost by unanimous decision. It was his UFC debut and he hopes to prove that he can roll with the big boys with a win over Kyler Phillips. Silva usually tests his strength in the beginning and looking for the TKO. He has a decent ground game and his last win via submission was way back in 2011. But if he will win this match, expect him to get this match to the full time.

Kyler Phillips

Kyler Phillips is a young 24-year-old professional MMA fighter that fights out of MMA Lab and hails from Phoenix, Arizona, USA. He owns a 6-1 professional fighting record and this will be his UFC debut. Ver the past six wins, he has knocked down his opponent four times but expects this fighter to take things to the ground as well as his BJJ background has yet to be fully seen in an MMA cage. In February 2018, he made a good impression in the UFC – The Ultimate Fighter Season 27 but he lost by a majority decision against Brad Katona.

Silva vs Phillips Betting Picks

This is a close battle as seen by Best Sports Book Online but the safer bet will be with Silva since he already has experience fighting in the UFC. Phillips is an intriguing prospect and was deemed as a submission artist but so far, that has not been seen. He could surprise Silva through fighting at the mat.
