Perez vs Kape Prediction

After an impressive 7-1 start to his UFC tenure, Alex Perez has since dropped back-to-back losses. Each of his last two defeats has come by first-round submission, failing to defeat Deiveson Figueiredo for the flyweight title at UFC 255 before submitting to Alexandre Pantoja's neck crank at UFC 277.

Meanwhile, Manel Kape has been trending in the opposite direction. After losing his first two UFC fights, "Starboy" has rattled off three consecutive victories. The first two came by first-round KO/TKO while his latest came in the form of a unanimous decision win over David Dvorak back in December.

It's also hard trusting Perez when he's been finished six times throughout his career. At the same time, 16 of Kape's 18 career wins have come by knockout or submission. Five of those finishes came by submission, spelling bad news for Perez, who's been submitted in back-to-back outings.

Expect Kape to take advantage of Perez's slump, moving up the flyweight rankings in the process.

Winner: Manel Kape
