Mike Trizano (9-2) has suffered his only losses in his last three. After scraping by fellow TUF opponents Joe Giannetti (2018) to win the tournament and Luis Pena (2018) in split decisions, he was sitting at 8-0. He then dropped back down to featherweight to take on Grant Dawson (2019) who was too strong and submitted him in the second round. Trizano responded well with a unanimous decision over Ludovit Klein (2021) but is now coming off his second loss which was a unanimous decision to Hakeem Dawodu back in February.

He welcomes Lucas Almeida (13-1) to the octagon. In his sole fight in 2019, he knocked out Nicolas Cocuccio in the third round to extend his unbeaten record to 12-0. Nearly a year later, he headed to the APEX for his audition on the Contender Series but suffered his first loss dropping a unanimous decision to Daniel Zellhuber (2021). However, he laced up the gloves just a month later to submit Italo Trindale and get the call-up.


These guys have the same height and reach and a similar amount, of fights but Trizano has fought tougher competition so far in his career. He is the heavy favorite, but Almeida only has one loss on the record which was to the undefeated Zellhuber and he is clearly a natural finisher with a lot of tools at his disposal.

He will fight long and may even initiate some grappling, but Trizano should just have the edge in every area. Expect him to stick behind his jab gradually wearing Almeida down. When he starts to tire Trizano will open up with combinations and his big right hand.

This fight should be a mixture of striking and grappling fought at a decent pace until the bell. We are backing Trizano to get back on track, but the value is with the Brazilian considering the odds.
