Khaos Williams returns to the cage after a year away and welcomes newcomer Rolando Bedoya to the UFC octagon at UFC 288 on Saturday.

Bedoya has an impressive record, but is he ready for an established UFC welterweight in the hard-hitting Williams?

Let's break down the potentially electric prelim matchup.

Bedoya, a 14-1 debutant from Peru, enters as a relative unknown from a low-level regional scene.

And he's getting thrown right into the fire against Williams, one of the most powerful punchers in the welterweight division.

I have bet against Williams, but I have had to increase how I value him after watching extensive action.

Williams is highly physical – and seems difficult to take down – but he is also very durable and has surprisingly decent cardio for someone who throws as hard as he does.

Williams was particularly impressive in his loss against Randy Brown; he can swing fights with three damaging shots over 15 minutes and nearly stole that decision.

Williams vs. Bedoya Pick

Bedoya likely has a speed advantage and may have some early success, but I expect Williams to land flush at some point.

I would lay juice to bet his KO/TKO prop up to -125 (projected -130).

The Pick: Khaos Williams wins by KO/TKO (-120, 0.25u) at FanDuel
