Aiemann Zahabi vs. Ricky Turcios Prediction

To kick things off properly before we delve into the main theatrics of the preliminary card we have Ultimate Fighter winner and longtime anime aficionado Ricky "Hadouken" Turcios going against Aiemann "Ariel Helwani" Zahabi. Now what we got right here is your typical binary, familiar 135-pound affair. The crazy striker in Turcios is going to look to make a name for himself on the relatively vanilla aging veteran that is Aiemann Zahabi. 

While I already don't like the low output of Zahabi, what I like even less is his stretches of inactivity between his bouts, with his last contest coming a cool one year and five months ago. Ricky is fresh off his Tuf Title Victory, all the more encapsulated by his over-frenetic energy and frantic pace. To put it simply, he's got that dog in him. But with great dog walking comes even greater responsibility, and in an effort to keep him honest let's go over some of his Achilles heels. 

For one, he is a defensive nightmare, having a sub 50 percent striking defense, as well as being wild on the feet which will no doubt lead to some takedowns If his opponents choose to level change. Those are literally the only flaws in his game, however, as his bursts of energy and vitalic youth make up for more than enough to cover for any defensive shortcomings at this stage in his career, but it is something to monitor for the future regardless.

If you have made it this far in the article you can probably guess who I'm siding with. I'm rolling with Pretty Ricky until the cows come home or the cow gets flatlined coming in and I suggest you do the same.
