Featherweights with matching 7-1 records meet in the middle of the card this week as Angel Pacheco steps in with Danny Silva.
The elder member of this pairing, Pacheco has earned four straight victories, all by stoppage, and wrapped up his camp working with Rob Font, Calvin Kattar, and the rest of the New England Cartel. Silva, who trains under UFC veteran Cub Swanson, dropped a majority decision to DWCS alum Canaan Kawaihae two fights back, but rebounded with a first-round stoppage win in late June to get things moving in the right direction again.
Pacheco is the more tested of the two, but Silva has a great frame and reach for the division, which sets up another interesting dynamic inside the cage this week. Watching to see how things play out should be good fun.
