UFC Fight Night: Nassourdine Imamov vs Ian Heinisch fight breakdown and prediction

This matchup between The Hurricane and Nassourdine at UFC Fight Night will be a battle between two strikers. However, Nassourdine has a big physical edge over his opponent in this fight. He has a significant reach and height advantage over Ian which could make a difference in this fight.


Moreover, he can use this his reach advantage to strike from a distance and land more shots. Therefore it is expected that the French fighter would control the fight.

However, one cannot disregard Ian’s striking as he is established himself as a very accurate striker with a significant striking accuracy of 50%. Hence this fight could go the entire three rounds as both fighters have similar fighting styles.

But if Ian Heinisch manages to land a takedown then things could get interesting as the French fighter was taken down four times in his previous fight and that changed the course of the bout last time.

However, he must have made some adjustments and improved his grappling skills for this fight. As a result, Nassourdine Imamov will most likely get his hands raised if it goes the distance because he is a more skilled fighter than Heinisch and he would end up dominating this matchup.
