Jonathan Martinez (13-4) vs Marcelo Rojo (16-7)

Bantamweight (135)

Jonathan Martinez

Rojo represents the perfect comeback fight for a fighter whose mental needs a slight buff after a devastating knockout loss to Davey Grant. Wonderful kicks were evidenced against Thomas Almeida, yet the defensive liabilities are likely to remain throughout his career. Rojo will bring the action early, but his inability to create traps will allow Martinez to land harder and more often as the better athlete.

Marcelo Rojo

Forget the record, Marcelo Rojo is a pretty fun fighter to watch who brings the heat. In terms of unranked feeders in the UFC, he is about as much fun as you could expect. Technical deficiencies are clear upon reviewing the Jourdain fight, chasing the Canadian around the octagon and walking himself onto hard shots. His chin will struggle to hold up to Martinez power in a similar fashion.

Predicted Result: Martinez TKO Round 2

Forget the record, Marcelo Rojo is a pretty fun fighter to watch who brings the heat. Technical deficiencies are clear upon reviewing the Jourdain fight, however. While a volume heavy offence can paper over the cracks, his chin will struggle to hold up to Martinez power in a similar fashion. The perfect comeback test for Martinez who suffered a devastating knockout to Davey Grant.
