    SIR

    Crude Dutch to English translation.

    The Laotian-American Andre Soukhamthath returns to the Octagon on 27 October 2018. During UFC Fight Night 138 in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, Gavin Tucker is the opponent. Both men meet in the Bantamweight division. This was what Nolan King announced through FloCombat. The fight will take place in the Octagon of the Moncton Events Centre on the Preliminary Card.

    Andre Soukhamthath (MMA 12-6 / UFC 1-3) made his UFC debut in 2017 as the CES MMA Bantamweight Champion. Soukhamthath is an all-round fighter who prefers to fight standup. Soukhamthath made his debut at UFC 209 against Albert Morales. Soukhamthath had a strong debut, but could not prevent Morales with a Split Decision victory. Soukhamthath then made his second appearance for the UFC in August 2017 at UFC Mexico City. Soukhamthath took on the Mexican Alejandro Perez. In one of the most controversial and debatable decisions of 2017, Soukhamthath lost through Split Decision. Because of this, Soukhamthath was still looking for his first victory in the Octagon after two Split Decision losses. That victory came in December 2017 during UFC Fresno. Soukhamthath stepped in for the injured Bryan Caraway against Luke Sanders. Sanders was stronger in the first round, but struggled against a punch from Soukhamthath in the beginning of the second round. Sanders went down and Soukhamthath followed with several punches. In this way, Soukhamthath very impressively contributed his first victory in his UFC career. Subsequently, in March 2018 Soukhamthath took on the undefeated Sean O'Malley. Soukhamthath clearly lost the first two rounds. O'Malley, however, broke his foot in the third round on a block from Soukhamthath. However, Soukhamthath did not notice this. This allowed O'Malley to take the "read out" to the end of the third round and win the victory via Unanimous Decision.

    Gavin Tucker (MMA 10-1 / UFC 1-1) made his UFC debut competing at featherweight in 2017. Tucker faced MMA veteran Sam Sicilia in Halifax NS. Tucker dominated the fight standing from start to finish and won a clear Unanimous Decision. Tucker spent almost his entire career in the Extreme Cage Combat promotion, where he was also the titleholder. Tucker is a very all-round fighter and managed to finish most of his fights. A total of eight finishes including four Submissions and four (T) KOs. Tucker is seen as a great talent in the Canadian MMA scene. Tucker was paired with Rick Glenn for his second fight during UFC 216. Tucker was dominated by the complete fight and it was thanks to the referee that the fight was not stopped earlier. Glenn won via Unanimous Decision.

    On the surface, provided he has fully recovered from the beatdown from Glenn and acclimates to the weight cut, looks like a favorable fight for Tucker.

    Good fight. They both need to bounce back from their last performance. I'm rooting for Tucker.

    They both should’ve been released.

    Hopefully a double KO incoming.

    If Tucker breaks his foot he's got a great chance to win here

    Glad to hear Tucker is making another appearance.

    Met him last year, nice guy. He gets a bad rep for some reason.

    I like his style, glad to have an islander in the UFC to represent us.

    More than anything I'm just glad Tucker is going to fight again. As that fight with Glenn was horrific. Fingers crossed he gets a win here

    One of the very few times where i actually felt awful watching a fight, absolute massacre. Glad he took about a year off to heal his brain and face a little bit. Not sure he has mentally recovered so taking Andre "IQ" by dec

    The first thing I thought was ”hey isn’t that the zero fight iq guy? It is! What a dummy.”

    I wasn’t disappointed in the comments here.

    Tucker looked so good in his first fight and so shitty in the second. He should win this though
