Shares of the former champion of UFC in the easiest weight of Garbrandt lower. In December 2016 at UFC 207 he won the title, taking it from the hands of Dominick Cruz, after which the Team Alpha Male fighter was only waiting for the health problems and losses by knockout. Garbrandt was twice finesilver T. J. Dillashaw and Pedro Munoz in March 2019.

Forecast for battle

The last defeat of Garbrandt is largely due to his inability to control his emotions. If “No Love” keeps calm, he is very dangerous fighter. He has a wonderful footwork and excellent Boxing. It is not very dangerous on the ground, but his wrestling skills are at a high level and therefore it is difficult to fell to the ground and hold him there.

Assunção good in all aspects at the same time, but not highlighted in any of them. He has a black belt in BJJ, but he didn’t win by submission in 2013, and seismicity such a fighter as Garbrandt, generally impossible. The Brazilian has a good kick, but overall the rack it is inferior to the opponent as well as speed. Garbrandt a great opportunity to record into an asset for the first 3.5 years of winning.
