A firefight at Welterweight.
That’s what this fight is. Two extremely exciting and game fighters colliding just outside of the rankings. The winner here might get a top-15 opponent next, but the real winners are the fans.
This fight takes place in the Welterweight (170 lbs) division.
Jake Matthews holds a professional record of 18-5-0 and is currently unranked. His notable wins include Andre Fialho, Li Jingliang, and Diego Sanchez.
Matthew Semelsberger holds a professional record of 10-4-0 and is currently unranked. His notable wins include AJ Fletcher, Martin Sano, and Jason Witt.
Matthews is 7-2 in his last 9 and has truly put his skills together. A dangerous grappler, boasting 4 UFC submissions, now has the well-roundedness to take his game to the next level. His last fight was a clinic over Andre Fialho at UFC 275. He was untouchable en route to a 2nd-round knockout. His only loss in the last 4 years was a competitive match vs. Sean Brady.
Also 7-2 in his last 9, ‘Semi The Jedi’ is no slouch on the ground either but also prefers to use his hands to get the job done. His 2 wins against Jason Witt and Martin Sano lasted a collected 31 seconds. He fights to finish and is always dangerous. He showed that danger and heart in his last fight against Alex Morono. Semelsberger was down on the scorecards and knew he needed a finish. He went out and landed a huge flying knee, dropping his opponent and nearly getting the job done.
