Forecast for battle
What makes this clash interesting is one of the largest middleweights in the roster will face one of the most small. Hermansson growth of 185 cm with a monstrous rich in the 197 see while the growth of Gastelum 175 cm, arm span of 182 cm In trouble last Hermansson knows how to use his long arms. He has a great jab which he holds the opponent at the distance, and when it is reduced, the Swede shows her beautiful grapplers skills, being a threat on the ground with various types of chokes.
But Hermansson there are some flaws, it is sometimes a little too keen on bumps and open, and the chin it sometimes brings. Gastelum knocked out and shook some eminent men, but he needed to get to the striking distance. And this can be very difficult if the Swede will keep a cool head. Gastelum good wrestler, but at Middleweight, he doesn’t look physically powerful fighter, so this fight in the clinch and on the ground it can be a problem.
All of this suggests that ways to win Gastelum not very many, and perhaps it would be better for him to stick to a strict diet and stay in the Welterweight division.
