Rousimar Palhares    PFL    Welterweight
Palhares is slated to fight Aliaskhab Khizriev on March 30, Guilherme Cruz of reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Palhares, fresh off a draw with Shamil Amirov, will look to get back in the win column against Khizriev. Prior to the draw, Palhares had been in the midst of a small slump, dropping do of his previous three bouts. However, the 38-year-old's 19-8 record speaks for itself.
Marcos Galvao    Bellator    Bantamweight
Galvao has been removed from the Bellator roster, Guilherme Cruz of reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Galvao had been struggling in his recent bouts and the move comes as little surprise given his expiring contract. At 36 years old, Galvao's worth seemed to be declining. He'll leave Bellator with a career 18-9-1 record.
Zak Ottow    UFC    Welterweight
Ottow will fight Mike Pyle at UFC 222 on Mar. 3, Alexander K. Lee of reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ottow is coming off a TKO loss to Jingliang Li at UFC Fight Night 122 back in November and has lost two of his last three bouts, so he'll be looking for a bounce-back showing in March. That said, his opponent, Mike Pyle, has dealt with some struggles of late as well, losing his last two. With both fighters often looking for submissions, this fight could spend the majority of the time on the ground. Pyle owns the height advantage here, but at 42 years old, is roughly 11 years older than Ottow, so Ottow could look to wear down the older Pyle early and often.
Mike Pyle    UFC    Welterweight
Pyle is set to fight Zak Ottow at UFC 222 on March 3 in Las Vegas, Alexander K. Lee of reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Pyle last fought Dec. 30 of 2016 at UFC 207. There, he lost to Alex Garcia by way of first-round knockout. He's struggled lately, coming up just 2-5 over his past seven bouts. Overall, he is 27-13-1 with a 10-8 UFC record. His opponent, Ottow, has gone 2-2 since joining the UFC in Oct. of 2016.
Derrick Lewis    UFC    Heavyweight
Lewis suffered a fractured hand over the weekend during his win over Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night in Austin, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Despite securing the victory, Lewis also suffered a fractured hand. It's unclear at the moment how long he'll be sidelined, though future updates should be available as he hits milestones in his recovery.
Olivier Aubin-Mercier    UFC    Lightweight
Aubin-Mercier's scheduled fight against Gilbert Burns at UFC on FOX 28 on Saturday has been scratched, reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Aubin-Mercer and Burns were expected to throw down in the prelims, but Burns was medically deemed unfit to attempt to cut to the 156-pound lightweight limit. Now, it's well too late to find "OAB" a replacement opponent. He had entered the matchup as approximately a (-135) betting favorite, but it is now unclear if the two will attempt to reschedule to a later date.
