Timothy Cuamba Betting Preview

Cuamba is coming into this battle with a three fight win streak on the line. His most recent success was a second round TKO against Alexander Schenk back in December of last year.

Six victories are on his resume, which are composed of three knockouts and three decisions. Two of his six wins have resulted in a first round finish and he has one loss coming by submission.

“Twilight Timmy” has half of his experience coming from the Cage Fury Fighting Championship, where he is undefeated through three battles. Based on his resume, this upcoming battle will be the toughest of his career since some of the wins have not been that impressive.

Cuamba is currently ranked as the 150th best featherweight fighter in the United States. This is a great chance to improve that ranking and push his career further.

Mateo Vogel Betting Preview

Vogel also has three battles he is attempting to extend a streak with. His most recent battle was a third round rear naked choke submission win against Drew Brokenshire back in March of this year.

He has established eight wins, consisting of two knockouts, four submissions, and two decisions. One of his battles has resulted in a first round finish, while he has one loss each by decision and “other”.

“Carrapato” has put together some quality wins in his career. Most notably, he has gone 3-0 with Battlefield Fight League and 3-1 in TKO Major League MMA.

He has been able to move up in the United States rankings, as he is currently the 32nd best featherweight. He has a tremendous amount of potential to do well here and earn a contract.
