UFC on Fuel TV 5 Facebook preview

By Josh Reese

Tomorrow in the morning in while your eating brunch you can sit back and enjoy the UFC on Facebook, a 5 fight prelim card will get you ready for the main card on Fuel TV. Here are the guys on the card a few thoughts on these warriors stepping in the cage!

Featherweights: Jason Young (9-5) 145lb vs. Robert Peralta (15-3-1NC) 144lb
Young comes in the fight with a decision win against Eric Wisely, but before that he was 0-2 in his UFC career both decision losses. Peralta is back after a yearlong absence. On the very first FOX card he suffered a No Contest via an accidental headbutt from Mackens Semerzier, before that he was the winner of 8 in a row.

Catchweight (175) DaMarques Johnson (16-11) 183lb vs. Gunnar Nelson (9-0-1) 175lb
Johnson a big bangger unfortunately comes in to this fight with a lot of things against him, overweight, out of shape, short notice and only has two wins in his last six fights. Nelson a up and comer, he is a primer grappling star every win has been a finish.

Middleweight: Tom Watson (15-4) 186lb vs. Brad Tavares (8-1) 185lb
Watson not a very young prospect, but still a legit fighter making his UFC debut he has 1 loss in his last 12 fights and is the owner of a few belts is coming of back to back finishes. Tavares a TUF 11 fighter had a good run on the show, since the show he has went 2-1 and his loss was to uber wrestler Aaron Simpson and at 24 years old he is still getting better.

Featherweight: Andy Ogle (8-1)144lb vs. Akira Corassani (9-3-1NC) 144lb
This is TUF Live vs TUF 14 both men are making their UFC debuts after being on the show, and like recent history both are fighting for one spot. Corassani has not been in a official fight since 2011 and hasn’t won since 2010, Ogle is riding a 7 fight win streak including 4 wins in 2011.

Light Heavyweight: Kyle Kingsbury (11-4-1NC) 204lb vs. Jimi Manuwa (11-0) 204lb
The main event of the prelims is a good one, in which Kingsbury draws the short stick once again. Kingsbury will welcome another fighters debut and like the last debut he hosted Manuwa is a highly touted prospect. Kingsbury comes in riding back to back losses, while Manuwa has finishes all of his fights and has yet to see the 3rd round.
