UFC 265: Anderson Dos Santos vs Miles Johns Fight Breakdown and Prediction
Both the fighters are currently unranked and it would be a great opportunity for Berinja and Chapo to get a win at UFC 265 and get a step closer to enter the top 15 of the bantamweight division. As for the predictions for this contest, Miles Johns will step into the octagon as the favorite and is expected to defeat the Brazilian fighter.
This is mainly due to the well-roundedness of the American fighter. Moreover, Chapo also has an upper hand in terms of striking. Moreover, Dos Santos is not a great striker and he often ends up getting dominated while exchanging blows while standing up. Therefore Miles Johns could end up landing more strikes than Dos Santos and win the fight via decision. However, the only department where Miles Johns lags behind Berinja is in grappling.
Hence Anderson Dos Santos would constantly try to use takedowns and attempt to submit Miles Johns as he has an outstanding submission record in MMA. Therefore this matchup would likely turn into a contest between a striker and a grappler. But Miles Johns has great takedown defense and it would be difficult for the Brazilian fighter to take him down. Consequently, Miles John will get his hand raised by the referee at UFC 265 this weekend.
