McGregor vs. Dos Anjos
In a release by MMAFighting.com, Mcgregor shows his confidence knocking out Dos Anjos in the first minute of the first round. “I believe I will dust Rafael inside one minute” Conor stated in the press conference. On the other hand, the fighter also degraded Rafael’s speed. “He’s the bum version of Aldo. He is slower and sloppier” McGregor added. During previous matches, The Notorious has the ability to predict fights like what he did on Aldo’s defeat by 13 seconds of the first round. Well, from a one-sided opinion McGregor has the advantage the problem is the weight class where the fighter is about to move up to 155 which might take effect on the speed and movement.
On the other hand, Rafael Dos Anjos says lightweight is different and regarded The Notorious as “bigger” when it comes to size and reach advantage. During the press conference, Dos Anjos stated that it’s his job to defend his title and go for a strong finish. “I want to make Conor McGregor quit at UFC 197” he told MMAFighting. “He may have the reach advantage but I’ve fought better fighters – Nate Diaz, Cerrone, Anthony Petting and Ben Henderson” he added. RDA has the advantage in terms of previous fights but we have to take into consideration that Except Chad Mendes, no one was able to put McGregor in Danger.
In terms of physical attributes, RDA has quite the advantage having a meat on his bones and could probably give additional strength in the critical rounds. In addition to that, we’ve seen Dos Anjos’ confidence in his previous fights dominating the world title. Skills wise, RDA can almost fight both inside and outside. He wrestles well and can perform excellent Brazillian jiu-jitsu. On the other hand, after stopping Jose Aldo, it’s no doubt McGregor is the smarter fighter here despite the lack of thickness and masculine attributes. Good thing with McGregor is that he is flexible and can compete to any type of fighter. Speed wise, The Notorious has a bit of advantage here since he can move quickly do some fast combos and has the power to strike and knocks opponent. If he can connect with RDA with a clean and blind punch to the chin, he might take the victory of this contest.
However, it’s difficult with a bigger guy like RDA who has great power and experience with different opponents. Early Prediction: Round 2 KO For Dos Anjos.
Holm vs. Tate
There is no clear prediction for this bout. Both are unpredictable fighters and the result will defend on how well they prepare for the fight. In terms of physical attributes, Holm has the advantage here because of her height and reach-advantage. The power is also in favor with Holm. Although Tate isn’t as aggressive as Rousey or Holm, she can play wisely with stand-up strikes. She also has the ample stamina that last for rounds and can take huge hits without getting too much damage. Early Prediction: Overall, Holly Holm will win via 3rd round Knockout.
