Perrin is a solid striker in his own right. I’d definitely give the advantage to aori on the feet. But, u also gotta factor in that aori is a career 125er, so he’s smaller than the actual BWs. I’d have to watch tape first before making a finalized pick but the initial lean is aori but by a thin margin; Perrin is pretty solid imo

I went to check and his fought at 135Ib a good 85% of his career (go on his tapology page and select show bout details and you'll see). First two bouts in the UFC were at 125Ib, his move back to 135Ib clearly has helped him as his not going to be having to cut a lot. Jay Perrin is a decent fighter but the tape was unimpressive. Can't help but think that Jay Perrin falls into the same catgeory of the fighters who get called up on short notice, loses and gets another opperounity to show who they are yet they fail to do so again. Jesse Strader, Micheal Gillmore, Brandon Jenkins, Kris Moutinho, Alan Baudot, Mark Striegl. I can go on and on but I'm sure you get my point. They claim on I'm going to beat this fighter coz I have a full camp now and they look the exact same as they were when they took that first bout on short notice lol. Aori should win here at a high clip (9 out of 10 times). Striking, body shots, calf kicks, body kicks, crazy cardio (zombie like watch the Jeff Molina), great footwork not stationary, improving TDD and underrated grappling game all in his advantage.

I wouldn’t put Perrin in the same category as those fighters u listed, BUT, I totally get what u mean. Saying this because those guys are absolute ****ters and some of the worst fighters to ever grace the roster; Perrin is definitely better than those guys lol. I really like aori so I’m rooting for him to win

I think its a close fight. Aori seems like a decent ufc level guy(reminds me a whole lot of damir hadzovic). Perrin seems decent too.

But for y'all to say he is a lock is insane

Fairs bro, Just finished doing some extra research love that Aori has moved to Fight Ready MMA and will continue to do so for this fight against Jay Perrin. Just clocked that Jay Perrin is from the Syndicate MMA gym that is a terrible gym for a fighter to be out of hell Aori Cameron Else is from Syndicate MMA. I think Aori finishes him bad.

Kamaru Usman DEC
I’m so glad this fight was made, definitely the most intriguing matchup for Kamaru at this moment in time besides Khamzat who I don’t think is quite ready yet. While I’m not a huge Usman fan I do think he wins this fight. Not sure how but I think he will mix his wrestling and striking in this one. I’d give the technical advantage to Leon in the striking but I’d give the power advantage to Marty. Should be a good one

I don't mind a Leon underdog pick at all but I think it's kinda crazy to say it'll be an easy fight for him
