Bryan Battle Def. Treseason Gore via Unanimous Decision

Gore was supposed to fight Bryan Battle in the final of the TUF 29 middleweight tournament but he suffered a meniscus injury and was replaced by Gilbert Urbina. Gore’s performance in the competition still earned him a UFC contract and he was given the opportunity to face Battle in his UFC debut at UFC Vegas 47 last February 5th.

In the bout that was labeled as the “real TUF 29 Finale” by many, Battle won via unanimous decision to hand Gore his first loss in four professional bouts. The 28-year-old from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina opened his professional MMA career with 3 consecutive wins including back-to-back first-round stoppages of L.J Jones and Christian Echols.

Gore opened as the -135 odds on favorite to beat Battle (+115) in their UFC Vegas 47 matchup and closed as high as -175 at some of the top MMA betting sites with Battle entering the fight as best as -115. Battle ended up winning with a score of 29-28 across all three scorecards.

Cody Brundage Guillotines Dalcha Lungiambula

Brundage picked up his first UFC win and banked his first Performance of the Night award in the promotion with a dramatic submission win over Dalcha Lungiambula at UFC Vegas 50 last March 12th. Lungiambula opened like a house on fire on the feet and nearly finished Brundage at one point. However, he made one simple mistake that enabled Brundage to capitalize and jump into a guillotine choke and locked it in to win at the 3:41 mark of the first round.

With the win, Brundage is now 1-1 inside the UFC Octagon after losing his UFC debut to Nick Maximov at UFC 266. The former Lights Out Championship super middleweight champion won his first five professional bouts before splitting his last four. Brundage is 7-2 with three knockouts and three submission victories.

This will be the third time in his last five bouts where Brundage has opened with the minus money sign written next to his name. He opened at -125 odds when he submitted Joseph Kropschot at LFA 99 in February 2021. Brundage also opened at -110 odds in his pick’em bout against Lungiambula the last time out.
