Picks, odds and analysis for tonight’s UFC fight night card – Rozenstruik vs. Almeida airing on ABC
Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs Jailton Almeida goes down in Charlotte, NC at UFC on ABC 4, May 13, 2023

It almost makes it worse that the UFC was probably really trying to put together a fight night card for tonight’s UFC on ABC: Rozenstuik vs. Almeida airing. They’re on a big network (in a bad timeslot) away from the Apex, in front of a live crowd. They’ve got lots of recognizable names on the docket, and a couple hot prospects. What they don’t have, however, is a main event. Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Jailton Almeida is, at best, a bout between two heavyweights still looking to find their audience. At worst, it’s a predictable stepping stone for Almeida on his way to something that counts.

Since the biggest thing this week’s UFC on ABC: Rozenstruik vs. Almeida card lacks is a quality main event, it makes sense that the prelims aren’t too shabby. Matt Brown vs. Court McGee is a battle of road-dog vets who should have already met before. Karl Williams looks like something special, and Cody Stamann vs. Douglas Silva de Andrade promises some quality action. Not the best undercard the UFC has made, but not the worst.
