UFC Fight Night: Andre Petroski vs Micheal Gillmore Fight Breakdown and Prediction
By taking a look at the performances of both the fighters in The Ultimate Fighter, it seems that Andre Petroski will have an upper hand going into this contest at UFC Fight Night. This is mainly due to a major flaw in Micheal Gillmore’s game. In the fight against Urbina in TUF, Gillmore was taken down very easily and after some resistance, the Gentleman tapped out.
Therefore Petroski will try to exploit Gillmore’s weak ground game in tomorrow’s fight by trying to control him on the ground. However, Micheal Gillmore has an advantage in terms of cardio and can try to tire his opponent and use his striking abilities to win the contest.
Even though both fighters have their weaknesses in certain departments, Andre Petroski’s superior grappling would make him a strong favorite in this matchup. Thus Andre Petroski is expected to get his hand raised by the referee in this fight
