UFC Vegas 40 Prelim Preview

Saturday, October 16th (7:00 PM EST Main Card, 4:00 PM EST Prelims)

Read our Main Card Preview here.

Andrew Sanchez vs. Bruno Silva

  • UFC Records: 5-4-0 vs. 3-2-1
  • D.A.N.A. Records: 1-3-5 vs. 3-0-3
  • WATCH – Both of these guys are finishers but aren’t quite proven talents considering their last wins are both against Wellington Turman. Sanchez has been establishing himself as an unranked journeyman with little room to improve while Silva, despite being new to the UFC, is hardly a prospect at 32 years old. Still, Silva’s pre-UFC experience and the fact that he comes from M-1 makes him a fighter to keep an eye on until he inevitably hits his ceiling.

Danny Roberts vs. Ramazan Emeev

  • UFC Records: 6-4-0 vs. 5-1-0
  • D.A.N.A. Records: 4-4-2 vs. 0-0-6
  • WATCH – At first glance it appears that Ramazan Emeev should be a known name in the world of MMA. He won 6 title fights in M-1 before going to the UFC where he has a promotional record of 5-1. His problem is that he can’t finish fights at the UFC level. It doesn’t matter how exciting you were before and how successful you are now if every fight you are in is a bathroom break. Danny Roberts on the other hand is a definite journeyman and has been finished in all 4 of his UFC losses. This fight is the perfect set-up for the ultimate lose-lose! Root for Roberts to get the upset as he is systematically dismantled or root for Emeev to get a finish as he takes the easy and boring path to a 30-27 unanimous victory. Either way, the joke is on you!

Loopy Godinez vs. Luana Carolina

  • UFC Records: 1-1-0 vs. 2-1-0
  • D.A.N.A. Records: 1-0-1 vs. 0-1-2
  • BATHROOM BREAK – Life is too short to watch uninspiring and unranked women’s flyweights!

Nate Landwehr vs. Ludovit Klein

  • UFC Records: 1-2-0 vs. 1-1-0
  • D.A.N.A. Records: 0-2-1 vs. 1-0-1
  • WATCH – Klein had an incredibly impressive UFC debut, finishing City Kickboxing’s Shane Young in the first round. Landwehr was an incredibly exciting M-1 featherweight champion. Despite these prestigious endeavors, both fighters have been struggling as of late and will be looking to right the ship this Saturday.

Danaa Batgerel vs. Brandon Davis

  • UFC Records: 2-1-0 vs. 2-5-0
  • D.A.N.A. Records: 2-0-1 vs. 1-1-5
  • WATCH – First fight: Fight of the night loss. Second fight: KO in the first round. Third fight: TKO in the first round. Like the ancient romans at the great coliseum watching Christians fed to Lions, join us in watching Danaa “Not Dana” Batgerel attempt to feast on the soul of another mediocre fighter in his path.

Istela Nunes vs. Ariane Carnelossi

  • UFC Records: 0-0-0 vs. 1-1-0
  • D.A.N.A. Records: 0-0-0 vs. 1-1-0
  • WATCH – One of them has finished a fight and been finished in the UFC. One of them fought for One FC. Both of them are on the right side of 30. Can’t promise they’ll be future champs but this is the first prelim fight on one of the shallowest cards of the year so you can’t expect much more.
