We have a scrap in the Lightweight division, as Omar “Venezuelan Fighter” Morales takes on Uros “The Doctor” Medic. After a 1-2 stint at Featherweight, Morales returns to the Lightweight division. A smart move, considering Morales is 10-0 at 155 pounds. Meanwhile, Medic aims to bounce back after suffering his first professional defeat to Jalin Turner. A fight that Medic was simply outclassed in. Despite the defeat, Medic remains an exciting fighter worth keeping an eye on.

As for a prediction, I have Morales winning. While Medic has proven himself to be a finisher, it has largely come within the first two rounds. Landing nearly nine strikes per minute, Medic has been one to swarm opponents with sheer volume. However, there are certainly cardio concerns that follow Medic should his fight enter the second round. Seeing that Morales has only been finished once via submission to Jonathan Pearce, I’m not certain that Medic can replicate such. Especially considering that Medic doesn’t have the wrestling that Pearce stifled Morales with. What I believe happens in this fight, is that Medic will look strong in the opening round. Then, as the fight wanes, he will tire and Morales will takeover. With sharp striking and better cardio at Lightweight, I believe a finish is very possible. Let’s say Morales via TKO.
