New opponent for debut

May 16, 2019
Winn will now take on Bruno Silva at UFC Greenville on June 23 following the withdrawal of Markus Perez, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
ANALYSIS
The reasons for the withdrawal of Perez are unknown at this time, but Winn will now draw an opponent making his debut as well. Silva is a 29-year-old Brazilian prospect with a 19-6 overall record, but has won 14 of his last 15 fights overall. There's certainly finishing power here, as Silva has accrued 16 of his 19 wins via KO/TKO, so Winn will look to negate that with his wrestling talents in this preliminary bout.

Set for debut against Markus Perez
MiddleweightUFC
April 18, 2019
Winn will take on Markus Perez in a middleweight matchup at UFC Greenville on June 22, Raphael Marinho of Combate.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Winn is still relatively new to the sport of mixed martial arts, but caught the attention of UFC brass with a win over Tom Lawlor under the banner of Golden Boy Promotions last November. A wrestler by trade, Winn will go up against a submission specialist in Perez that owns a 81 percent takedown defense and is 2-2 with the UFC. Winn will be 5-6 inches shorter but only have a slight disadvantage in the reach department. Training at American Kickboxing Academy, Winn is often referred to as a protege of current heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Few are better than DC at overcoming a height disadvantage and finding a way to win fights.
