Anthony Njokuani vs. Andre Winner
Former WEC spark plug Anthony Njokuani (13-5, NC) will battle former TUF 9 runner-up Andre Winner (11-5-1) in a UFC 132 preliminary card bout. Both lightweights are on shaky ground with the organization and will likely be fighting to keep their position in the UFC’s 155-pound division.
Njokuani, 31, is a Nigeria born mixed martial artist who now fights out of Las Vegas at Janjira Muay Thai. Njokuani made his professional debut in 2003 and lost only one time over his first eleven official bouts while competing in mid-level organizations throughout Texas, Colorado, and California. He joined the WEC in 2009 and after shaking off a debut loss against former Lightweight Champ Benson Henderson, he produced three straight “KO of the Night” bonuses. His success did not carry over with him in 2010; Njokuani has lost three of his last four bouts including his UFC 128 debut against Edson Barbosa this past March.
Winner, 29, is an English based mixed martial artist who fights out of Team Rough House in Leicester. Winner began fighting as a professional in 2006 and won nine of his first twelve while fighting in his home country. Winner earned a spot on TUF 9 and although he lost at the show’s finale, he bounced back and won back to back fights over Rolando Delgado and Rafaello Oliveira. He also has been on somewhat of a slide, losing his last two bouts against Nik Lentz (UFC 118) and Denis Siver (UFC 122). Winner should come into this bout well rested, as he has been out of the octagon for eight months.
Prediction – Njokuani decision
