Main Card

Francisco Trinaldo

Francisco “Massanranduba” Trinadlo is a 41-year-old MMA veteran fighter that hails Brasilia, Federal District in Brazil. Standing at five-foot-eight, Trinadlo fights out of Evolucao Thai and currently owns a professional MMA record at 24-7. Trinaldo has been in the UFC since June 2012. He had a rough start in the organization but went undefeated in seven matches in 2014-2016. His streak was halted by Kevin Lee and since then, he alternated his wins and losses leading to his next match. Trinaldo is coming from a tough victory against Bobby Green in UFC Fight Night 164 where he won via unanimous decision. In his career, most of his wins came from decisions and he can also knock down people to the ground. His last KO victory was registered just in September 2018, where he threw a knee to the body of Evan Durham.

John Makdessi

John Makdessi is a 34-year-old professional fighter that came from Laval in Quebec, Canada. He is a lightweight fighter that stands at 5-foot-8 and fights out of Roufusport. “The Bull” currently owns a 17-7 professional MMA record and he started fighting in the UFC way back in December 2010. He was successful in his first two matches in the UFC but he also fell twice after that. His biggest fight winning-streak was from November 2012 to September 2013. His streak was halted by Alan Patrick Silva Alves and since then, he hasn’t won back-to-back fights until December 2017. Looking like a fighter that got his groove back, he is coming to his next match on a three-fight winning streak. In those bouts, he was able to take victories from Abel Trujillo, Ross Pearson, and Jesus Pinedo – all via unanimous decisions.
