Mike Perry Free Breakdown
Perry brings big power on the toes and a durable way to embrace brawls. He can be outmanoeuvred by specialized boxers but contrary to the likes of Ponzinibbio, a top aggressive striker for the division, he had been very competitive. Perry is powerful from the clinch but his takedown defense is still unproven against a legitimate grappler. Cowboy could harness the ground game as he has underrated wrestling, but he tends to fight unpredictable gameplans. Getting sucked into brawls is a common problem and here against Perry that might be a big mistake. He’s got large power himself but both guys are very hittable. On the feet it likely favours Perry, at least for the first half of the fight when he is most dangerous. Start Looking for a back and on warfare, with the durability of Perry making the difference — as both guys consume serious damage.Andrei Arlovski Breakdown
Arlovski is on a three fight losing streak but has been competitive in most fights going back to his KO loss to Ngannou. At 40 years old that he brings a not as aggressive style these days which has lead to six sequential decisions. His output looks to be slowing his exact boxing style stays, permitting him to work behind a jab against diminished competitions. Sakai is much younger so could still be advancing, but so far has failed to impress. He is big and throws powerful yet slow helpless strikes, with low quantity. Primarily a boxer, Arlovski will not have to be worried about too many different weapons.
This is likely to be a gradual fight using the effective striker coming out on top. Start looking for Arlovski to avoid exchanges and poke Sakai from the outside or utilize his wrestling to maintain him against the fence. If he can avoid getting caught a decision here is likely for the underdog.
Bet = Arlovski at 2.30 (+130) chances. Risk 3 Units to acquire 3.90 Units.
Virna Jandiroba Breakdown
Jandiroba is a severe BJJ blackbelt which makes her UFC debut with a 14-0 record. She has jiu-jitsu wins over both Claudia Gadelha and Amanda Nunes. Whilst restricted with striking, she’s constant with takedowns and has a huge variety of methods to acquire fights to the ground. On top she is very solid, maintaining control and attacking subs. That is obviously a large step up in competition from Invicta against Esparza, a true veteran. Carla is on a losing streak against fellow grapplers and hasn’t shown great takedown defense to coincide with her offensive wrestling skills. She would be best to attempt to keep this fight standing where her improved striking should be able to edge out volume.
Jandiroba isn’t shown at this level but looks to be the real deal, demonstrating outstanding method and composure. Worst case scenario Esparza is able to defend off her back and create scrambles to induce dramatic exchanges, taking us into a close decision. A better situation is Jandiroba dominating with her top control and securing a unanimous decision or locating a entry. An Esparza finish is very unlikely. Given the chances and respective avenues to success, a shot on the newcomer at even money is good price.
