Хабиб Нурмагомедов – Тони Фергюсон UFC: дата боя, прогнозы, результаты
The southpaw tries to push a suffocating pace, averaging 5. The former champ is coming off a two-year layoff from the cage. Of course, he had his massive boxing match with Floyd Mayweather last year, but ring rust is a thing and his cardio has already been questioned.
The Dagestan native has outstruck his opponents by an average The orthodox fighter has a tremendous 70 percent significant strike defense, absorbing just 1. Much of these strikes came via a swarming ground and pound. His main attack is his elite-level wrestling. He averages 5. This was on full display when he took on Abel Trujillo at UFC when Trujillo was dragged to the ground 21 times through their three-round bout.
How will McGregor and Khabib play out? McGregor has tremendous footwork and will have to play the matador role as the charging bull of Khabib seeks to take him down. El Cucuy has freakish cardio in which he pushes the pace either on the feet or on the mat, seeking the submission or raining down a vicious ground and pound. Ferguson has outstruck his opponents by double digits five times during his current streak.
UFC 209 Odds: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson Preview and Prediction
Ferguson averages 5. The year-old is extremely creative in his standup game, throwing strikes from many different angles, including using the cage to jump off of. Similar to Ferguson, Pettis has a deadly ground game that has earned him four submission victories inside the Octagon and he averages 1.
However, a win for Pettis puts him back in the conversation to reclaim the title he lost over three years ago. El Cucuy has so many different weapons to get his opponents out of the cage, but most importantly his cardio is such that he can mentally defeat his foes with his all-out pressure. Pettis can be dangerous backing up, by throwing some spinning attacks that he has found success in. I anticipate a great battle with two creative fighters that will surely entertain and set the table for the main event.
