On the main card, we have a Heavyweight scrap between Parker Porter and Alan Baudot. At 36 years old, Porter will look to win his third straight fight. Something that has eluded Porter since he debuted in 2007. Meanwhile, Baudot seeks his first UFC victory. Having joined the UFC in October of 2021, Baudot hasn’t had the best of success. In two UFC fights, Baudot has been nail, as he’s been stopped both times. Luckily, one of the fights was turned to a no contest after Rodrigo Nascimento tested positive for a banned substance.

As for a prediction, I have Porter winning. While there is something to be said about a fighter fighting with his back against the wall, which Baudot is clearly doing, there is also something to be said about the Baudot’s last five fights. Obviously one is a no contest, but the result was a knockout defeat. His third such in five fights. Of his two victories, only one is legitimate. Somehow, in a stoppage defeat to Todd Stoute, he was later credited with a disqualification victory after Stoute tested positive for marijuana. What I’m trying to say is, Baudot clearly isn’t UFC caliber and circumstances may have aided him in getting here. Meanwhile, Porter has proved his worth in his last two fights. Showing excellent volume, cardio and some good wrestling chops, Porter has a skillset that could be problematic for some. Obviously not against those in the top ten, but potentially outside of that. Anyways, I predict that Porter will win this fight via TKO.
