UFC 289 is set to get going this weekend from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada on Saturday, June 10 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a five-bout main card highlighted by a women’s bantamweight title fight between the champ Amanda Nunes and #5 Irene Aldana. Also notable on the main card is a featherweight fight between #13 Dan Ige and Nate Landwehr.
Ige is a staple of the UFC’s featherweight division. He enters with a 16-6 record, with all six losses coming via decision. Ige has five wins by knockout and five by submission. The veteran has had a rough go of things lately. He took three straight unanimous decision losses from June 2021 through June 2022. Ige finally got off his losing streak with a second-round knockout over Damon Jackson in January of this year.
Landwehr takes a 17-4 record into the weekend, and this will be his seventh bout in the UFC. He has gone 4-2 since joining the UFC but has won his last three matches. Most recently, Landwehr took on Austin Lingo in March of this year. He picked up the second-round submission victory, which was only his second career win by submission. He is known more as a strike specialist with his eight career knockouts.

If Landwehr can force this one to go the distance, he has a good shot of picking up the decision win. He is an accurate striker and only attempts takedowns when he has a high chance of completing them. Unfortunately for him, I don’t think Ige allows this one to go all the way. He did recently have that losing streak, but he matches up well with Landwehr. I think he picks up an important win on Saturday.
