Eryk Anders (4/11) Markus Perez (5/2) See the Latest Odds
American MMA fighter Eryk Anders takes on Brazilian fighter Markus Perez this weekend in Northern California at UFC Fight Night. Both fighters will enter the octagon having never lost meaning that at the end of the night, one of these perfect records will have to come to an end.
Eryk Anders in a decent fighter but at his age, it is unlikely that he will make a huge impact in the UFC unless he starts putting on some incredible performances very soon. The American is very compact and talented but he lacks the flair of some of the top fighters in the division. A win here will prove many critics wrong so I am expecting a very solid performance.

On the other hand, Markus Perez is a much younger fighter and he will look to use that to his advantage. The Brazilian has not fought on this big of a stage before and he will know that if he can get a win here, it could bump him up to the cards of a major UFC event. Perez is a very well rounded fighter and he will use that to his advantage since it will allow him to exploit any weaknesses he can find in his opponent, Eryk Anders.
With all that in mind, I am going to predict that Markus Perez will win this fight. The Brazilian is younger, faster and has more to his game that Anders. I think this is a big opportunity for Perez to make a name for himself and I see him doing that. We are getting a good price on this bet so I think it is the best option for this fight.
