After months of hype UFC finally for the first time sent to “Fight island” to this weekend to hold your event. Yas island, in Abu Dhabi (UAE), will host four consecutive UFC. The first of these 251 the UFC will take place this Sunday night/morning, and the card will delight fans with three title fights.
Yang and Aldo will compete for the vacant championship spot at Bantamweight once in may, Henry Cejudo finished legendary Dominic Cruz and resigned.
The UFC was heavily criticized by fans for what they gave Aldo a title chance. As the legendary Brazilian has played in the easiest weight only one match and lost to him at UFC 245 split decision to Marlon Moraes. Previous multi-year fight, ex-champion of UFC Featherweight champion also lost by being broken Volkanovski.
Ian looks like a legitimate contender with six victories in the octagon in six fights. The Russians in the UFC has faced a number of dangerous opponents including Jimmy Rivera, Jones of Dodson and Uryu Faber, whom he knocked out on the UFC 245.
Forecast for battle
Despite the fact that Aldo has spent his entire career at 145 pounds, misogony to 135-pound mark, it seems, does not cause special difficulties. At this weight he looks extremely healthy. In the fight with Moraes he from time to time, looked amazing, throwing quick combinations. And veteran throughout the match never slowed down and put pressure on the opponent until the end of the third round.
Ian has excellent footwork, he is able to throw ultra-fast series with incredible strength. Overall he is a very strong drummer. But he’s not invincible. Rivera and Dodson shook it, and Aldo is much more effective kickboxer than each of them, and at his side a huge experience.
From Aldo have problems when its pressure, as it was in a battle with Volkanovski. Jan able to do the same. If he forces Aldo back, it is likely that in the end he will break veteran. Jan much fresher and able to survive the storm that could offer him “Junior”.
