AAA Sports: AAA'S *10* "RED DRAGON" >> 86% WINNERS IN JUNE/JULY!
This is a middleweight bout (185 pounds) scheduled for this Saturday’s Fight Night 175 card in Abu Dhabi. It’s the semi-main (event), so it’s a big deal for both fighters, both of whom are coming off losses. Gastellum was actually 0-2 in 2019, losing a “Fight of the Year” caliber bout to current MW Champ Adesanya followed by a loss to Darren Till at UFC 244 in November. Both fights were decided by the judges with the Till fight resulting in a split verdict. Hermansson saw a four-fight win streak come to an end last September when he was TKO’d in the second round by Jared Cannonier. He was supposed to fight former 185 pound titleholder Chris Weidman on May 2nd, but that was scrapped due to COVID-19. This will mark the first time in his career that Gastellum comes in on a losing streak, so look for him to come out as the more aggressive fighter. He’s better on the ground than Hermansson. He’s also never been KO’d in his career, an impressive line on the resume. The back to back losses are of little concern considering the caliber of opponents that he was facing.
Tim Michael: ***BIG PLAYERS ALERT!*** 10* UFC PLAY OF THE MONTH!
Both fighters are coming off a loss, but I feel that this is a matchup which highly favors Kelvin Gastelum. Note that Gastelum is ranked sixth and Jack Hermansson is ranked ninth. Hermansson is 20-5 overall, but after winning four in a row, he enters off a loss to Jared Cannonier in September. Gastelum comes off a tough split decision loss to Darren Till at UFC 244 in November, but I beleive his superior punching power will be the difference maker in the end in this one. Lay the short price on the hard-hitting southpaw!
Silicon Valley Simulator: UFC SATURDAY NIGHT TKO OF THE NIGHT!
Gastelum is against the ropes in this one having lost his last 2 in the cage! Gastelum has a crazy chin and knockout power which you will see tonight. He's going all out with nothign to lose in this one. Hermansson is going to try to grind this one out but Gastelum is too quick and will get teh TKO!!!
Best Fight Picks: UFC Fight Night Pick Em Play
Kelvin Gastelum performs at his best when he is being counted out. With his back against the wall, I expect a motivated Gastelum tonight. All he has to do to win this fight is weather the early wrestling storm of Hermansson. There's a chance Gastelum takes damage or gets submitted early, but if that doesn't happen, I believe he will use his fast boxing combinations to light up Hermansson in rounds 2 and 3.
Best of luck!
