Luis Pajuelo Betting Preview

Pajuelo has been victorious in his previous four battles and is aiming to land another. His most recent success was a second round TKO against Heber Federico Pereyra back in March earlier this year.

Through seven of his victories so far, he has put together six knockouts and one decision. Three of his seven wins have resulted in a first round finish and his only loss has come by decision.

“Corazon de Leon” has spent a majority of his time in the Fusion Fighting Championship where he has gone 5-0 against solid opponents. This will arguably be another of his toughest battles.

Pajuelo is currently ranked as the 25th best professional fighter out of Latin America and the 20th best lightweight there. This is a tremendous opportunity to increase his rank and show his talents on a bigger stage.

Robbie Ring Betting Preview

Ring is undefeated through six fights so far in his career. His last successful bout was a first round TKO against Josh Delgadillo back in April of this year.

In his six battles so far, five have come by knockout and one by submission. In addition, five of his six victories have resulted in a first round finish.

“Razor” had previously gone 7-0 under amateur battles before turning professional. In his professional career, he has primarily fought with Aries Fight Series, going 3-0 against subpar fighters.

He is currently ranked as the 121st best featherweight fighter in the United States. He is also ranked as the 107th best bantamweight in the US. This is a great opportunity to move up further in the rankings and to earn a coveted UFC contract.

However, Ring has shown explosive power and has actually defeated a DWCS alum Jacob Kilburn just a few fights back.
