Arman Tsarukyan looks to continue his lightweight rise against Christos Giagos. Tsarukyan has been superb since a debut loss to Islam Makhachev, dominating three opponents. Giagos is 4-2 since returning to the promotion in 2018. Tsarukyan was unanimously picked.
Up-and-comers Nate Maness and Tony Gravely cross paths. Maness is 2-0 in the UFC coming off a submission win over Luke Sanders. Gravely has won two straight with a knockout against Anthony Birchak last time out. Maness was picked by four of seven writers.
Opening up the UFC Vegas 37 main card will be Joaquin Buckley and Antonio Arroyo. Since his highlight reel knockout, Buckley is 1-1 and looking to rebound from a head kick knockout loss at the hands of Alessio Di Chirico. Arroyo is 0-2 since coming from the Contender Series. All but two writers picked Buckley.
