Some recent faces within the Light-weight division will collide this weekend in New Mexico when Brok Weaver takes on Kazula Fargas. Brok shall be making his official UFC debut after incomes a contract preventing on ‘Dana White’s Contender Sequence’. His opponent misplaced in his debut so shall be trying to bounce-back from the cliché debut combat jitters.
Brok was born and raised in Macintosh, Alabama and has been preventing because the tender age of 12 after coaching together with his uncle; who’d previously fought Roy Jones Jr. on a number of events in his beginner days. Later, aged 15 he would start martial arts and by no means look again. He grew up preventing in a small city and should you haven’t seen one among Brok’s skilled contests, do your self a favor and go try some fight-tape.
With a supportive following, Brok is member of MOWA Band of Choctaw Indians who flip up and helps Brok at his fights. With face paint and headgear, the Indians positive do let their presence identified on combat day.

Kazula Fargas got here up quick in his UFC debut which is essentially the most possible end result for lots of debutant UFC fighters. That stated, Dana White Contender Sequence winners have barely differed from that statistic. The success of DWCS contract winners has been excessive.
Vargas, a 34-year-old from Mexico will face an uphill battle towards the technical placing and aggression that Brok will deliver to the desk. Brok is coaching with American Prime Crew for this combat camp and will probably make that his everlasting house if all goes effectively.
I imagine Brok enters this contest with Vargas with an enormous technical boxing benefit; on prime of that, he’s taller and wider. The attain benefit in favor of the extra technical fighter is normally a superb facet to get behind. Brok has additionally proven enhancements to his floor recreation, we’ve seen him land takedowns and submit his opponents previously so we all know he’s not a ‘one-trick pony’.
I don’t see a lot groundwork, I anticipate Brok to combat with excessive aggression how he at all times does and placed on a present for his UFC debut with the MOWA tribe watching. I desire the bigger man with extra preventing expertise usually to both take the judges nod or probably end Vargas inside the space. Both means, this bout has been positioned on the principle card for a motive; as a result of these two males ought to placed on a present.
This week’s Octagon Cynosure’ betting decide for UFC Struggle Night time New Mexico shall be Brok Weaver favoring his expertise, measurement, technical boxing & sturdiness. I wouldn’t guess Brok Weaver straight, he’s the proper parlay addition in your weekend bets although!
