Preview

The headliner of the FS1 card is a battle between James Vick and Joseph Duffy, who have enjoyed successful years thus far. Both will enter the Octagon sporting two-fight winning streaks, with Vick having disposed of Abel Trujillo via third-round submission at UFC Fight Night Houston in February and Marco Polo Reyes via first-round TKO at UFC 211, and Duffy having beat Mitch Clarke via first-round submission at UFC Fight Night Las Vegas and Reza Madadi via decision at UFC Fight Night London in March.

Due to a lightweight division that is as deep as it daunting at the top, neither of these fighters are ranked. But with a combined UFC record of 11-2, they are both certainly good enough to make this a main card-caliber fight.

There’s plenty of other intriguing action on the card, too. Walt Harris vs. Mark Godbeer should be an entertaining battle between two heavyweights who have seen a combined 86.3 percent of their MMA wins come via knockout. The winner of Ovince Saint Preux and Corey Anderson–both Top-10 fighters in the light heavyweight division–could very well get a shot at Daniel Cormier down the line. And then there’s Randy Brown vs Mickey Gall, which will help us get a better idea of Gall after two high-profile wins over CM Punk and Sage Northcutt.

Ultimately, the main card at MSG on Saturday night is undoubtedly going to be good, but these prelims offer a tremendous warm-up.
