UFC Fight Night 76 takes place tomorow in Dublin and we’ve got our quick picks for all the fights for you below.
Patrick Holohan vs. Louis Smolka
Injury woes have left the UFC serving us up a fight between two unranked flyweights fighters for the main event on the card. It’s a close match-up between two men who’ve put together a respectable 3-1 record in the Octagon so far, but I think with the Irish crowd behind him and an advantage on the feet Holohan scrapes together a win on the scorecards.
Patrick Holohan to win by decision.
Reza Madadi vs. Norman Parke
Former TUF: The Smashes winner Parke is coming off two losses, but I still feel he’ll get the better of Madadi who’s spent the best part of two years in a Swedish jail for armed robbery which isn’t exactly ideal preparation. Parke will keep the fight standing and deliver the more consistent, measured output offensively over the course of three rounds to earn a decision win.
Norman Parke to win by decision.
Nicolas Dalby vs. Darren Till
Somebody’s unbeaten record is coming to an end tomorrow and it’s a close call as to who it will be with Till having the bigger KO power, while Dalby is more technical and I think the latter’s volume of strikes will be the big difference between them that will help make up the judges minds after 15 minutes of fighting.
Nicolas Dalby to win by decision.
Jon Delos Reyes vs. Neil Seery
Promoted to the main card due to injuries, Seery should be able to edge the striking exchanges here, but I don’t see him having the power to stop Reyes inside the distance, so yet another decision is on the cards here.
Neil Seery to win by decision.
