It’s Fight Week again with a Light Heavyweight Main Event Nikita Krylov vs. Ryan Spann.

With last week's main event being Jessica Andrade vs. Erin Blanchfeild, and next week's event being UFC 285 Jon Jones vs. Ciryl Gane. This week, we have a light heavyweight bout with top contenders, Nikita Krylov facing Ryan Spann.

Nikita Krylov (29-9) is coming into this fight on a two winning streak with a unanimous decision win against Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 280, and a dominant first round knockout win against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Fight Night London. He also has fought many top UFC light heavyweight contenders as well like Glover Teixeira, Johnny Walker, Magomed Ankalaev, Paul Craig, and Jan Blachowicz.

Now Ryan Spann, (21-7) is also coming into this fight with a 2 fight win streak with two first round finishes. One of the finishes was a first round knockout against Dominick Reyes at UFC 281, and a first round submission against Ion Cutelaba at UFC Fight Night Vegas.

Spann entered the UFC five years ago from season 2 of the Dana White’s Contender Series, and has only lost twice in the UFC against Johnny Walker and Anthony Smith, who are top contenders in the light heavyweight division. Who do you guys think will win the main event this weekend?
