Assuncao v Garbrandt UFC 250 Preview


Raphael Assuncao and Cody Garbrandt clash in the co-main event at UFC in a tasty Bantamweight division fight at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Sunday morning (BST).

Both are coming off losing runs and the desperation to get back to winning ways it what makes this contest such a mouthwatering prospect.

Assuncao has lost two in a row, while Garbrandt has been beaten in his last three fights. Who will end the runs of Ls in Vegas?

Raphael Assuncao (MMA Record: 27-7-0)


Assuncao has suffered defeat in his last two UFC fights having lost just five of the previous 32.

The Brazilian lost to Marlon Moraes in a first round submission two fights back, then lost via the judges decision against Cory Sandhagen.

Assuncao had look an all-round talent prior to those two defeats, with his victories including successes over Moraes - in their first meeting, T.J Dillashaw and Aljamain Sterling.


Cody Garbrandt (MMA Record: 11-3-0)


Garbrandt became UFC Bantamweight champion with victory over Dominick Cruz in December 2016, but his rise to the top has come to a shuddering halt with three straight defeats.

His title defence against former teammate Dillashaw ended in defeat, and he also lost a rematch too. Pedro Munhoz was the most recent to defeat Garbrandt.

All three losses came via KO and Garbrandt's chin is the questionable factor after he was shown to be susceptible to blows. Could a switch to work with Mark Henry help him rediscover the winning habit?
