UFC Fight Night 154 FREE PICK: Randy Brown vs. Bryan Barberena

#24109 Randy Brown +220 (Saturday, June 22 @ 6 pm EST)

Interesting matchup for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 154 as Randy Brown and Bryan Barberena both enter off of a loss. Barberena (14-6), who most recently lost to Vincente Luque, should have a bit to prove here knowing he was winning that last fight before he got knocked out with six seconds remaining in the final round. Barberena is a brawler and will look to turn this into a dogfight against Brown. Brown (10-3) is coming off one of the more awkward knockout losses in most recent memory to Niko Price. He was winning the fight and controlling much of the second round before Price trapped his arm and hit Brown with one clean shot to the temple that resulted in a KO. This is a good matchup for Brown as he is a lengthy athletic fighter with long limbs, which should make Barberena uncomfortable. Brown is 6-3 and boasts a 78-inch reach while Barberena is only 6-0 with a 72-inch reach. Overall, Barberena is the more seasoned on the two fighters. But I can’t pass up such a good price on an underdog with a significant reach advantage.
