UFC 241 Prelims Preview

Manny Bermudez and Casey Kenney lead off the prelim card with a bantamweight showdown between two highly touted prospects. Bermudez holds an undefeated 14-0 record while Kenny comes in sporting a 12-1-1 record, including a win over UFC veteran Ray Borg – who was moving to bantamweight after challenging Demetrius Johnson for the flyweight title. Bermudez’s submission history speaks for itself and Kenney will likely do everything in his power to avoid this fight going to the ground and instead attempt to pick Bermudez apart on the feet. Kenney should be able to control the location of the fight but if Bermudez gets him down – look out!

Chris Giagos takes on Drakkar Klose in the first lightweight bout of the prelims. Giagos has been around the block and is currently in his second stint with the UFC. Known for his quality wrestling and well-rounded game, Giagos poses a solid test for the mercurial Drakkar Klose. Klose has surprising power for a 155 pounder which shows through in both his punching power and ability to wrangle opponents to the ground. This looks to be a fight that could very well go the distance and serve as a strong technical challenge both on the ground and the feet for the up and coming Klose.

Raphael Assuncao and Cory Sandhagen meet up in the second bantamweight matchup of the Prelim card. Assuncao is one of the division’s most respected veterans and has done battle with a number of the division’s most recognizable names. An extremely well-rounded martial artist, Assuncao is by far the biggest test in Sandhagen’s young UFC career. Coming off an impressive split decision win over John Lineker, a win over Assuncao would vault Sandhagen into serious discussion for a top-five ranking in the division. Meanwhile, a win for Assuncao helps put him likely a fight away from his first (long-awaited) shot at the belt.

The final fight heading into the main card features Devonte Smith going up against Khama Worthy. Worthy steps in as a late replacement for Clay Collard. Worthy is making his UFC debut and the task of facing one of the lightweight division’s most impressive up and coming strikers looks to be a daunting first test. Both fighters prefer to finish the fight with their hands and Worthy, in particular, has a tendency to fearlessly wade into battle and has been stopped early a number of times already. Smith needs a statement win to climb up the rankings while Worthy should be more than willing to take the fight to him early – giving his fight all the makings of an explosive finish to cap off the prelims.
