UFC Hamburg Early ‘Fight Pass’ Prelims Preview
Fight Night 134 AKA UFC Hamburg will be live from Germany bright and early Sunday morning with the early prelims streaming live on Fight Pass at 7:30 AM ET. The first set of prelims features two bantamweight matchups, as well as, a light heavyweight showdown.
Damian Stasiak vs Pingyuan Liu
Leading off the card, Damian Stasiak (10-5) faces off against Pingyuan Liu, who is making his UFC debut. Liu was previously with the Chinese fight promotion Wu Lin Feng, where he held a 6-0 record, with all victories by stoppage. Liu’s opponent, Stasiak is looking to bounce back coming off of two losses to quite formidable opponents in Pedro Munhoz and Brian Kelleher. With seven wins by submission and a substantial amount of experience in the UFC octagon, the Polish native Stasiak looks spoil the debut of the highly touted Chinese prospect Pingyuan Liu.
Jeremy Kimball vs Darko Stosic
The next bout features light heavyweights, Jeremy Kimball (15-7) and another fighter making his debut, Darko Stosic. Boasting a 12-1 record under various fight promotions, the 26 year old Stosic looks to continue his eight-fight winning streak coming into the octagon. This will be quite the challenge as he faces knockout artist Jeremy Kimball. Coming off of a submission loss at UFC 218 to Dominick Reyes, Kimball will need to utilize his heavy hands and stopping power if he hopes to have his hand raised on Sunday.
Davey Grant vs Manny Bermudez
Closing out the Fight Pass prelims is another bantamweight matchup between “Dangerous” Davey Grant (10-3) and the undefeated, submission specialist, Manny Bermudez (11-0). In February, Bermudez made his debut in the UFC with an impressive guillotine choke submission victory against Albert Morales. The 24-year-old Bermudez hasn’t lost a professional bout since 2015 and could prove himself to be one of the top rising prospects in the division. The man that looks to end his streak and quiet the hype is the English native Davey Grant. Grant is making his Octagon return after a two-year hiatus coming off of a loss to Damian Stasiak. The matchup between Grant and Bermudez was originally supposed to take place at UFC Liverpool, but a staph infection kept Grant out of the fight. Healthy and ready to go, Grant is eager to get back into the cage against a skillful opponent in Bermudez.
