UFC 289 Main Card Preview

Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Eryk Anders

These two don’t just have similar records, but they’re also similar physically. Both are 6’ 1”. Marc-Andre Barriault has a 74 inches reach. Eryk Anders has a 75 inches reach. Favorite Barriault’s record is 15-6. Underdog Anders’ record is 15-7.

Barriault heads into this a winner of 3 of his last 5. In his last bout, Barriault beat Julian Marquez via second round knockout.

Anders also won his last bout via second round knockout, beating Kyle Daukas. This fight is too close to call, which means rolling the dice with the fighter offering the better odds is the play.

UFC 289 Pick: Eryk Anders

Dan Ige vs. Nate Landwehr

Based on the odds, many must feel Dan Ige has returned to his best form. The favorite in this was on a 3-match losing streak before knocking out Damon Jackson in the second round in his last.

If Ige is back to his best form, he should win this. But we must question whether that’s the case. The favorite faces a tough opponent in Nate Landwehr.

The underdog is on a 3-match winning streak. Overall, Landwehr has a 17-4 record and is 8-2 via TKO/KO. Also, Landwehr won his last bout via submission, meaning the striker may have discovered some new skills. Backing the underdog makes sense.

UFC 289 Pick: Nate Landwehr

Mike Malott vs. Adam Fugitt

Underdog Adam Fugitt has won 4-of-5. Fugitt lost his first UFC bout, a match against Mike Morales, via third round KO/TKO. But in his second UFC contest, Fugitt bounced back with an impressive first round stoppage victory over Yusaku Kinoshita.

The victory over Kinoshita suggests Fugitt has a chance but on Saturday night, he faces a potential future world champ. Mike Malott is 9-1-1. He’s on a 5-match winning streak where he’s won 3 bouts via submission and 2 via KO/TKO. The favorite takes this.

UFC 289 Pick: Mike Malott

Charles Oliveira vs. Beneil Dariush

Before his last, Charles Oliveira was on an 11-match winning streak. 3 of the wins came in championship bouts. But in his last, Oliveira fell to Islam Makhachev.

There’s no shame in losing to Makhachev. Islam is one of the best fighters at UFC. Still, it will be tough for Oliveira to get back on the winning track against Beneil Dariush.

The favorite in this hasn’t lost since 2018. Dariush is 8-1 via submissions. Once this goes to the ground, Oliveira will be in trouble.

UFC 289 Pick: Beneil Dariush

Amanda Nunes vs. Irene Aldana // UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title

Underdog Irene Aldana is fighting great. The +250 choice has won 4-of-5. The lone loss in the last 5 happened in a match against Holly Holm via unanimous decision in 2020.

But although Aldana will fight well in this, she won’t beat Amanda Nunes. Nunes lost to Julianna Pena via submission at UFC 269. At UFC 277, Amanda fought a smart fight and regained her belt via decision. Nunes keeps the title.

UFC 289 Pick: Amanda Nunes
