3 More Picks For October 24’s UFC Fight Night Card From Dublin

3 More Picks For October 24’s UFC Fight Night Card From Dublin
The UFC returns to Dublin this month for a full slate of fights including Nicolas Darby and Darren Till's highly anticipated welterweight tilt. We're taking a peek at that fight, plus two more bouts in the second part of our UFC Fight Night preview.

Nicolas Dalby (-145) vs. Darren Till (+115) – Welterweight

Dublin’s upcoming UFC Fight Night card features two undefeated MMA combatants getting into the Octagon. Englishman Darren Till puts his undefeated welterweight credentials on the line versus Danish fighter (and fellow undefeated pro) Nicolas “Sharpshooter” Dalby. Both men impressed in their solitary UFC bouts with Till having the splashier debut by getting a KO win over Wendell de Oliveira Marques at UFC Fight Night 67. A decorated Cage Fighters vet, Dalby is a well-rounded and well-conditioned opponent with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills and striking savvy. It’s a tall order for Till to face, but we think the 22-year-old (he’s eight years Dalby’s junior) has what it takes to damage Dalby’s flawless record. Till is an underrated and dangerous striker that has left enemies in a heap after a KO or TKO. His Fight Night debut was just the start of Till’s UFC run and a win in Dublin feels like a real possibility.

Our Pick: Till

Norman Parke (-275) vs. Reza Madadi (+215) – Lightweight

Norman Parke, a Northern Irishman with judo, wrestling and boxing savvy, is considered to be a strong favourite in his clash with fellow lightweight Reza Madadi. Despite his favourite status, Parke’s had a difficult last run of fights. His last two bouts have ended in split decision losses, so a decisive win over Madadi would help boost his stock. Madadi’s nobody’s idea of a pushover, of course. Prior to his exile from the UFC, Madadi was 2-1 with the federation before his burglary conviction. Madadi’s a strong wrestler and a fearsome opponent, but ther are a lot of questions attached to his level of quality following a two year plus absence from professional mixed martial arts competition. Parke’s reputation as a strong defender will definitely help him in this UFC tilt, but we see Madadi pulling off the upset. His layoff may lead to a bit of rust, but Madadi’s always prepared for fights and that hasn’t changed in his time away from the Octagon.

Our Pick: Madadi 

#14 Darren Elkins (-165) vs. Robert Whiteford (+135) – Featherweight

Located on the earlier portion of the fight schedule is this featherweight matchup that has American Darren Elkins looking to move his way up in the division by dispatching Scottish fighter Rob Whiteford. Whiteford’s judo background gets a fair bit of attention, but he’s no stranger to closing out fights. After all, Whiteford scored a first round KO of Paul Redmond on a recent Glasgow Fight Night card. Whiteford’s reputation for being a tough guy to knockout may have Elkins (who has gone 2-3 in his last five fights) leaning hard on submission options. Elkins needs to win to rebuild momentum in the featherweight division, while Whiteford is itching get a win to move on to bigger and better things. We’re giving the edge to Whiteford.

Our Pick: Whiteford
