Cuban born and Florida native Yoislandy Izquierdo is looking to rebound from his loss in his last UFC bout and will be taking on Rafaello Oliveria at UFC 148. 'Cuba', as Izquierdo is known, will be on the fight card's opening bout and is coming off the only loss in his career.
Cuba's stand up game should be superior to that of Oliveria's, but Oliveria has a distinct advantage on the ground and the oddsmakers tend to think that will tilt the scales in his favor as Oliveria is favored to win the bout with his line set at -135.
