Paul Craig

Regardless of Joe Silva mastering principal card codecs a few years in the past by reserving males’s light-weight or featherweight because the openers, the present crop of UFC matchmakers proceed to force-feed us middleweights in these prime positions.

And despite the fact that we now have improbable fights like Joanderson Briot and Jack Shore just under this, the powers that be determined to kick off the paid portion of the cardboard with a possible middleweight squash match between Paul Craig and Caio Barralho.

Though I’m an enormous fan of Craig and provides him extra of a shot than the betting public is, I’ve a tough time seeing a concrete means for the Scotsman to win outdoors of lightning hanging for an additional opportunistic submission.

Borralho, alternatively, generally is a irritating fighter given his propensity to counter and peck away from the surface.

Craig has been displaying hanging enhancements that may assist maintain him afloat, however I’m unsure he can provide up sufficient to remain forward of his Brazilian counterpart on the scorecards.

The choose is Borralho through a irritating unanimous choice.
