This weekend comes an exciting night of fights out of Music City, U.S.A. and here are 3 fights to keep a keen eye on.

  1. Dustin Ortiz vs. Brandon Moreno

Dustin Ortiz is coming off of a split decision victory over Zach Machovsky and is going up against Brandon "The Assassin Baby" Moreno. Moreno has upset both Louis Smolka (below) and Ryan Benoit to start off his UFC career 2-0. He has good jiu-jitsu and showed in his last fight he has enough in the tank to go the distance. This #9 vs. #10 matchup should be a fun one.

2. Jake Ellenberger vs. Mike Perry

This has FOTN written all over it. A couple of stand-up guys that hit like rocks are gonna slug it out in the octagon. Mike Perry should be extra motivated because he is coming off of his first professional loss, while Ellenberger is trying to get back in the win column after losing 3 of his last 4. Look for these two to brawl until either the bell sounds or someone goes limp.

3. John Dodson vs. Eddie Wineland

The last fight on this list includes a unicorn of a man and the fastest hands in the UFC. Eddie Wineland is a full-time firefighter and builds sting ray tanks all while being a professional cage fighter. He's going up against John Dodson, who is coming off of a tough split decision loss to John Lineker. He has the fastest hands in the division, and if he can close the distance on the taller Wineland, watch out.
