Lawrence’s opponent Trevin Jones is no pushover either and is currently riding high on a 3 fight win streak. ‘5 star’ last lost a professional MMA fight back in 2018 against Rodrigo Praia. Jones has a professional MMA record of (13-6-0) and would look to improve that when he steps into the Octagon this weekend.

Both Lawrence and Jones have not yet suffered a defeat in the UFC. Therefore, both fighters will hope to keep their UFC undefeated record and winning streak intact.

Ronnie Lawrence vs Trevin Jones: Analysis

Coming into this fight, both fighters have similar temperaments and are of similar age. Add to the fact that both fighters have almost similar height and reach, with Lawrence getting the slightest of advantage in both, and one can see why this fight excites many fans.

However, Lawrence will clearly be the moderate favorite as he is a more well-rounded athlete. ‘The Heat’ will look to dominate his opponent on the ground and has enough talent to hold his own when on his feet. Jones on the other hand will be looking to get a knockout early on, however, if that does not happen, we should expect Lawrence to win the fight.

Final Prediction: Ronnie Lawrence defeats Trevin Jones via Decision.
