Fight Preview

 
This bout will feature one of the most exciting prospects on the whole roster, as the UFC makes its long-awaited return to Asia with a packed lineup and a fantastic fan base. This weekend’s headline card features an undefeated Japanese prodigy, Rinya Nakamura, taking against Fernie Garcia.
 
Despite the fact that neither guy is currently ranked, these bantamweights will do all in their power to win this weekend. Nakamura also needs a win to maintain his undefeated record, while a loss would likely result in Garcia’s dismissal.
 
Nakamura won UFC Vegas 68 by knocking out Toshiomi Kazama after dominating both Gugun Gusman and Shohei Nose. Even more impressive is that Nakamura has finished out his opponents in the first round of each of his three UFC victories.
 
Meanwhile, Garcia’s professional life isn’t progressing as hoped. In his UFC debut on Dana White’s Contender Series 2021, the 31-year-old defeated Joshua Weems via technical knockout. Instead of riding the wave of victory, Garcia promptly lost the next two bouts by unanimous decision against Journey Newsom and Brady Hiestand.
 
The technical aspects of this bout are easy to dissect. Nakamura is a world-class athlete who treats every bout as if it were his last. Nakamura’s striking speed, power, and precision are more than enough to take him far in this sport, and his world-class wrestling is a serious threat.
 
Keep in mind that Garcia usually gets off to a poor start and just lacks the power and athleticism of Nakamura in this battle. To win this fight, he will need to take some significant risks due to his lack of athleticism.
 
It’s fun to root for an upset, but let’s not overanalyze the situation. Nakamura is a unique and dangerous competitor in the octagon. Once the dust settles, it’s evident that Garcia doesn’t belong in the UFC and will have suffered his third straight defeat.
