Bronson Casarez is a young tough kid, with lofty aspirations. Following in his teammate Joshua Aveles’s (Current KOTC 170lbs and 160lbs Champion) footsteps, the Team Diamond product entered his last fight at Hollywood Fight Night 8 as a last minute replacement. He emerged a prospect, with a ton of attention. In that fight, Casarez outpointed 135lbs stalwart Dmitry Gerasimov in a very close fight. The win bolstered the young fathers confidence and moved him onto a short list of players in his division.

Casarez is now set to take on his toughest opponent to date in Jared Papazian. Papazian a former UFC veteran is coming off a big win in his last fight over Ara Muradyan and is looking to make the jump back to the UFC with an impressive win over a hungry young opponent. Don’t let the experience differential fool you, the fight should be a classic brawl, as neither fighter has the ‘backup’ in their vocabulary!

Also appearing on the card in support of the main event in a co-feature Muay Thai specialist Casey Greene takes a very tough Mario Delgado. Coming off a huge win in his last bout over Derrion Chapman, Richard Leroy is set to return to the Lightsout Ring against submission specialist David Fabian who is making his pro debut.

The preliminary card is also filled with local talent, featuring some excellent match-ups. Systems Training Center Eric Rios is looking to rebound from his first loss against another fighter,  Levon Sargsyan who is in the exact same position. Fighting out of Glendale Fighting Club, Sargsyan is also searching for his first win as a pro. Both fighters have explosive hands, and the matchup is an early favorite for fight of the night.

Featured on the preliminary card are some highly touted local prospects such as HarQore HQ’s/10thPlanet/The Yard product Matthew Spencer, Glendale’s Alfred Kashakyan, Systems Training Center’s Jared Carlsten, and of course Muay Thai Legend Jemyma Betrian who is looking for her second win as a mixed martial artist in as many bouts.

Betrian is perhaps the best prospect currently not in the UFC strawweight division. Although only 1-0 as a mixed martial artist, Betrian’s striking pedigree makes her one of the most dangerous women in the world at her weight. This may very well be the last time to catch her fight outside of the UFC.

If you have never been to a Lights Out Promotions/Bash Boxing card you are certainly in for a treat.

Fight Predictions For UFC on FX

Pat Barry (6-4 MMA) vs. Christian Morecraft (7-2 MMA)

Analysis: Both fighters need to perform to keep their jobs. Morecraft will try to utilize his wrestling skills to take advantage of Barry’s known weakness. However, Barry has been working with Brock Lesnar, and Cole Konrad on specifically his wrestling weakness. He will look to keep the fight standing, and look for one of his K-1 knockouts.

Prediction: Barry 2nd rd TKO

Mike Easton (11-1 MMA) vs. Jared Papazian (14-6-1 NC MMA)

Analysis: Papazian is a champion, and has been in a few memorable fights, however this is his first foray in the octagon.  Easton, is a BJJ black belt, who trains with Dominick Cruz regularly on his stand up. He is coming off his debut victory at UFC Versus 6, and will look to welcome the new kid to the block with a quick loss.

Prediction: Easton Dec

Duane Ludwig (29-11 MMA)vs. Josh Neer (32-10-1 MMA)

Analysis: This is going to be the fight of the night. Both fighters are extremely seasoned and ready to make divisional statements. Ludwig, is known for being the holder of the unofficial fastest knockout in history. Neer is known for being equally deadly on his feet or on the ground. It would suit Ludwig to keep the fight standing, where he may possess a slight advantage. Neer will have to survive the big shots, to get inside and take this fight to the ground.

Prediction: Ludwig Dec

Jim Miller (20-3 MMA) vs. Melvin Guillard (40-10-3 MMA)

Analysis: Nothing motivates a fighter more, than losing his status as a contender with derailing loss. Both of these fighters are in that position. An impressive win would reignite the momentum for either one of these fighters, while the loser would certainly move further down the rankings. Jim Miller is a extremely well rounded fighter, his grappling is world class. Guillard is one of the divisions most athletic fighters with explosive striking. His glaring weakness is his suspect ground game. His strikes will take a toll on a opponent with a strong chin, but eventually a savvy  wrestler will penetrate that barrage, enabling the shot. Miller has an exceptional chin, if he can withstand the initial attack he should be able to get the fight to the mat.

Prediction: Miller submission rd 2
