Early Fight Pass Prelims
Gareth McLellan (+230) vs. Paulo Borrachinha (-305)
Paulo ‘Borrachinha’ Costa is making his UFC debut here in the card opener. 8-0 in his MMA career, this far, Costa has finished all his fights in the first round. His appearance on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil left a lot to be desired, but he’s facing lower level UFC opposition here. McLellan is basically the litmus test for whether or not you belong in the UFC. I’m going to say that Costa does, and side with him to get the victory.
Prediction – Paulo ‘Borrachinha’ Costa by 3rd Round TKO
