Jonathan Martinez is coming off the biggest win of his career back in March. He faced Said Nurmagomedov on the main card of UFC Fight Night: Yan vs. Dvalishvili, and despite entering as a considerable underdog, upset the Russian via unanimous decision. After dropping the first round, Martinez would rally and win rounds 2 and 3 to secure the victory. Now, he'll face Adrian Yanez as he looks to climb deeper in the Bantamweight rankings.
Adrian Yanez will be returning from a brutal first-round KO loss to Rob Font. Yanez was outstruck during the bout, and despite landing good shots vs. Font, he was caught with a massive uppercut at the end of the first round. However, he possesses excellent boxing, which he has demonstrated against tough opposition, such as Davey Grant and Randy Costa, and he'll be looking to use his elite striking to get back into the win column.
This is a fire matchup in the Bantamweight division, with the victor likely receiving a top-10 opponent next. So, who do you have winning? As a member of the Verdict Community, let us know with a comment down below.
