The fifth in a row and last before moving to the UFC “Fight island” tournament of the promotion No. 1 will be held on Sunday in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA) in the arena of “UFC APEX”. In the title card of UFC on ESPN 12 us waiting for a very intriguing fight top fighters of the light weight.
Basically the card will fight two heavyweights average level Villante and green.
Villante first appearance in the heavyweight division since 2011. He has solid experience of performances in the cage since 2013, having fought 15 times in the UFC, and before that spent 5 fights in Strikeforce. It’s never anything serious did not claim, in the octagon after losing more battles than winning. Villante back after losing by knockout Michal Alekseichuk 16 months ago.
Six-foot green you have to drive the weight to fit into the limit of halifata. He signed a contract with the UFC in 2017, after participating in The Ultimate Fighter 28, where he reached the semi-finals. Its way into the octagon he started with three straight wins, including a knockout of Junior Albini. But then a huge American stumbled on two Russians. At first he was finishyou blows Sergey Pavlovich, and then caught by the armbar Alexey Oleinik.
Forecast for battle
Villante prefer to fight in the counter, relying on the Boxing. Due to the wrestling past he can be a good idea to keep the fight on the feet. He is much more experienced opponent and probably better than him as a drummer. However, the problem Villante always been his desire for exchanges and a lack of protection.
Villante three times in the UFC was stopped by strikes and that was at light heavyweight, and now he has to fight with green, which is much larger and more powerful than his previous opponents. Green tough drummer, it’s faster and athletic than you’d expect from a man his size. He has finishing ability in all areas. Expect we’ll get wild, but short battle where green “turn the lights” worn by the fighting the former light heavyweight.
