Prediction for the Blaydes vs Daukaus bout
The main bout of the UFC Fight Night tournament, which means the clash will be a five-round affair.
Curtis Blaydes has the experience of a five-round fight with Aleksandrov Volkov under his belt, but Chris Daukaus can’t boast that, with his UFC fights ending early.
Blaydes is a basic freestyle wrestler who likes to take his opponents to the ground and torture them with his punches, but can also hit them well in the clinch. Curtis has 15 fight wins, 10 of which he finishes early, either by KO or TKO.
Daukaus prefers to take fights in the standup where he can decide the outcome with one punch. Chris has 12 wins, 11 of them by decision, also by KO or TKO.
What’s also interesting is that both have beaten Alexey Oleynik, Shamil Abdurakhimov and lost to Derrick Lewis.
I think this will be a classic and very interesting fighter vs striker confrontation. For me, the favourite here is Curtis Blaydes. If he puts his strengths, which are experience and wrestling, to good use he will win.
My prediction: Curtis Blaydes to win by TKO in the second half of the fight.
