We will be treated to a great fight in the Bantamweight division as Brazilian fighter Ricardo Ramos takes on South Korean fighter Kyung Ho Kang. Both these fighters have established themselves as exciting competitors and I think we should be able to see a very interesting contest. Winning is very important in the UFC since neither fighter will want to get dropped from the roster so we should expect lots of determination.
Kyung Ho Kang enters this fight with a record of 14 wins, 7 losses and 1 no contest. This is a decent record but it must be improved significantly if the South Korean wants to establish himself as a top fighter. Kyung Ho Kang has been fighting for a long time but had a 4-year break which saw him not fight in 2015, 2016 or 2017. This break was due to Kyung Ho Kang serving in the South Korean military. The Korean fighter returned to the ring earlier this year where he won his fight easily in the opening round. This will be a much harder test and it will be interesting to see how Kyung Ho Kang handles it.

Ricardo Ramos, on the other hand, is a much younger fighter and this will be his third fight in the UFC. The Brazilian has an MMA record of 11 wins and 1 loss and that is very impressive. As it currently stands, Ramos is still considered a young talent but if he continues winning he will soon be seen as a potential title challenger. This will be a great chance for the Brazilian to beat a fighter more experience than he is and I think he will be good enough to do that.
All in all, I am going to predict that Ricardo Ramos will win this fight. The Brazilian has looked more impressive than the South Korean in the recent past and I think the added speed and power of Ricardo Ramos will get the job done.
