Chamorro fighter, Jon Tuck is on the Preliminary Card at UFC Fight Night 135. The 33-year-old fighter will take on Drew Dober from the USA in a fight in the lightweight division. Both fighters will be keen to win this fight and improve their UFC record so we should expect a hard-fought contest. There will be plenty of skill and talent in the octagon for this fight which this will be a great contest to witness.
Jon Tuck enters this fight having won 10 of his 14 MMA fights. It has been a while since Tuck last fought with his last fight being in June 2017, which is over 12 months ago. Such a long absence is not usually positive but the man from Guam looks like he is in a good condition for this fight. Tuck has been fighting MMA since 2007 which means that he is hugely experienced and I am sure he will look to use this experience in this fight.

On the other side of the coin, Drew Dober will look to exploit Jon Tuck’s absence. The American has been much more active in the octagon and that means he will be more familiar with the arena than his opponent. Similar to his opponent, Drew Dober has also been fighting MMA for a long time and this means that he will not be intimidated by the great experience than Jon Tuck possesses. It is important to note that Drew Dober’s last fight was in the welterweight category which means that the American will be losing weight for this contest. This should not be a massive issue since Dober has fought many times in this weight bracket and should be familiar with it.
It is hard to predict a winner for this fight but I am going to pick Drew Dober to win. The American has been fighting more regularly and I think that will make the difference in this clash.
