Bhullar and Golm both will be competing in only their third fight with the promotion. With both the fighters being handed the first loss of their career in their last fights, it would be interesting to see how do they respond.
Bhullar took on Poland’s Adam Weiczorek at UFC on Fox 29 in Glendale, Arizona. Bhullar looked impressive in the first round with winning striking exchanges and securing takedowns using his wrestling background. The second round started in a similar fashion, however unfortunately Bhullar got caught in a rare ‘Omoplata’ submission, being only the second fighter in the UFC to become the victim of omoplata.
Golm on the other hand took on veteran Timothy Johnson at Fight Night Sao Paulo in February. He suffered a unanimous decision loss.
