A pair of promotional newcomers clash in the Featherweight division, as William Gomis takes on Jarno Errens. A winner of nine straight, Gomis comes into his debut with some momentum. Receiving this fight though on short notice due to several cancellations on the card, Gomis doesn’t need to travel too far as a native of France. Meanwhile, Errens comes into this fight 5-1-1 over his past seven fights. Fighting for several promotions, most notably Ares FC, Errens will get an opportunity to prove that he is ready for the octagon.

A fight put together rather quickly, it’s interesting to see which man will be ready to rock on Saturday. However, knowing that both have an opportunity they might not of gotten just yet, I expect both to come out prepared. As for whom I’m siding with, it’s a coin flip. Currently on a tear, Gomis is a solid striker. With good distance management and leg kicks that come in barrages, if you give Gomis space, he will tear you up. While the ground seems to be a gray area within his game, I’m not certain that Errens, who too is a striker necessary has the wrestling to cause issues. If anything is certain though, Errens has some nice judo tosses and can quickly snatch up a submission if presented with one. While I do favor Gomis on the feet, Errens has shown to pressure foes and be at his best when he’s not defending takedowns. Given Gomis needs space to get off his offense, I could see Errens limit the Frenchman’s attacks and take home a close decision victory.
