Thiago Moises

Thiago Moises is just entering his prime at 26 years old and this fighter came all the way from Indaiatuba in São Paulo, Brazil. His professional MMA career has been handled by the American Top Team. Moises stands at five-foot-nine and has been competing heavily at the lightweight division. He goes into this match carrying a 15-5 professional record and a dozen of those wins are divided into six submissions and six decisions. After winning three straight matches in the UFC, Moises’ momentum has been halted as he lost to Islam Makhachev in UFC on ESPN 26. That match ended in the fourth round as Moises was submitted by rear-naked choke at the 2:38 mark.

Joel Alvarez

Joel Alvarez is known as “El Fenomeno” whenever he steps inside the cage and this fighter’s hometown is located in Guion, Asturias in Spain. He has been polishing his skill at the Bandog Fight Club. Alvarez is just in the middle of his prime at 28 years old and has been competing best at the lightweight division. He has only been defeated only twice in 20 professional bouts and 18 of those wins came from submissions. After experiencing a loss against Damir Ismagulov, Alvarez won his next three fights. Among his fallen enemies were Danilo Belluardo, Joseph Duffy and the most recent was Alexander Yakovlev in UFC 254
