While the UFC is in the spotlight this week thanks to UFC 254 and the massive Khabib vs. Gaethje fight, it’s not the only game in town. On Friday, Taura MMA 10 goes down. Here’s a quick peek at the prospects to watch out for.

Taura MMA 10 | Friday | Brazil

Flyweight, Felipe Gheno (9-1)

After losing a fight in late 2013, Gheno would not lose again as he’s currently on a seven-fight win streak. He’s progressed through his career and is one of the most exciting flyweight out of Brazil. He has a background in kickboxing competing in WGP. He’s always throwing in offset patterns attacking the outside of the leg and the inside of the leg. Gheno has good movement and slips and returns very well. His striking is always coming in bunches with tons of output. He fights Bruno Rodrigues (11-3-1) which is a very stiff test.

Bantamweight, Ary Farias (9-2)

Farias is a well-accomplished BJJ ace. He is a BJJ black belt; some of his many accomplishments are 1st Place CBJJ Brazilian Nationals in 2011, 1st Place IBJJF European Open in 2011, and 1st Place IBJJF World Championship in 2011 and 2016. He’s fought for a top promotion before in ACB and has even fought in the United States for LFA. He fights Johnny Campbell (20-12).
