The Ultimate Fighter 27 winner Trizano beat fellow TUF competitor Luis Pena in his second UFC fight, before losing by rear-naked choke to Grant Dawson.

How they match up

Dawodu is the shorter man at 5”8, although he will have a 2-inch reach advantage over Trizano. Trizano is 5”11 with a reach of 71”.

In his UFC career, Dawodu has landed an average of 4.72 significant strikes per minute, compared to Trizano’s 3.22.

Both men are 30 years old. Dawodu has a higher finish rate of 59% to Trizano’s 34%.

Reasons to watch

Both fighters come from a kickboxing background, so this one should be an exciting fight on the feet. Trizano has mixed in the grappling occasionally in his UFC career, while Dawodu has never shot for a takedown since joining the UFC.

The stakes

Either fighter could break into the Top 15 with a victory. Added to his upset over Klein, Trizano beating Dawodu would likely bring a ranked opponent next.

Dawodu’s loss to top prospect Mosvar Evloev won’t tarnish his record too much. A convincing victory over Trizano and “Mean” Hakeem can expect a ranked opponent too.

Trizano told The AllStar that securing a finish would all but guarantee a Top 15 matchup in his next fight.
