UFC Fight Night 91 goes down later today from a brand new location, Sioux Falls, SD. The card seems fairly modest on paper, especially in light of the fact that we lost our main event a few weeks ago when Michael Chiesa had to pull out of his scheduled contest with Tony Ferguson due to a ruptured disc.
Ferguson got a new opponent, albeit a relatively unknown regional prospect named Landon Vannata, and another fight, a bantamweight attraction featuring John Lineker and Michael McDonald, was promoted to the main event. Overall, there are still some very interesting match-ups on the card and we get two women's bouts. After all the great fights we got from the ladies over the weekend, it's kind of hard not to look forward to those offerings in particular.
Our Bloody Elbow content partner, Tommy Toehold has been making all sorts of videos lately, and this week is no different. This time, we get a 3-minute fast burner that features Tommy's Top 5 fighters from the card (these are guys/gals he's picking to win) and his two choices of fights to avoid.
Here's a brief breakdown on one of his Top 5 fighter choices:
"My number one pick for UFC Fight Night 81 is Smiling Sam Alvey. Long time veteran with brutal KO power. 3 first round finishes in the UFC, and he is up against a fighter making his UFC debut with only 8 pro fights. When Sam lands clean you go to sleep and he's going to early in this fight."
