Ovince Saint Preux vs. Dominick Reyes

Dominick Reyes is off to a white-hot start to his UFC career, currently sitting at 3-0 with each win coming via first-round stoppage. That run warrants a temperature check against an established veteran, and top-10 staple Ovince Saint Preux is just the man for that job.

While OSP has maintained a safe distance from title contention throughout his UFC career, the Strikeforce alum has hung around at the top of the division for years, courtesy of his solid all-around skills and excellent physical tools. Despite being at a relatively advanced stage of his career, he remains a legitimate challenge for almost anybody on the roster. 

Despite looking exceptional to this point, Reyes should be viewed as the underdog here as he remains unproven against high-end opposition. If he can pull this one off, however, big things could be just around the corner.

Derrick Lewis vs. Alexander Volkov

In another world, this would be a heavyweight title eliminator. In this one, however, it's just another fight as the world awaits a specific date and time for Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar. That said, Derrick Lewis vs. Alexander Volkov is still very good on its own merits.

A former Bellator champion, Volkov has transitioned exceptionally well into the octagon, earning a 4-0 record with his most-recent win coming at the expense of Fabricio Werdum. He'll have his hands full, however, against a fan favorite and home run hitter in Lewis.

This one is something of a toss-up as Volkov is more consistent and likely the better overall fighter, but Lewis' pure punching power is almost unmatched. The Russian should have this one, but it also feels like this might be Lewis' chance to break through to the next level.

Michelle Waterson vs. Felice Herrig

It’s easy to tell which fighters the UFC likes sometimes. Legitimate contenders will find themselves toiling away on the prelims of free TV cards in Idaho or South Dakota. Meanwhile, promotional darlings end up getting put onto the biggest pay-per-view event of the year despite being miles away from the belt.

Michelle Waterson is one of those darlings, and while that isn’t necessarily undeserved given her Invicta FC championship pedigree, she reaps the benefits of the UFC’s preferential treatment here with strong placement on the UFC 229 card. Unfortunately, while the promotion did her a favor by putting her on this event, they weren’t nearly as kind with the matchmaking.

Set to face off with a much-improved Felice Herrig, the Karate Hottie will be facing somebody capable of matching her standing but besting her in the clinch. That should make for a slow grind of a fight that ultimately pushes her out of the win column...but not necessarily too far away from the main event picture.
