UFC Fight Night, Diego Ferreira vs Mateusz Gamrot Fight Prediction and Breakdown
Mateusz Gamrot has a great opportunity this weekend at UFC Fight Night as he faces Diego Ferreira who is #12 in the division. A win over a tough veteran like Diego would most likely earn him a spot in the top 15 of the division.
Whereas Diego Ferreira is not in the best of his form in recent fights. After racking up six straight wins between 2016 and 2020, the 36-year old has suffered two back to back losses which have pulled him down the pecking order.
Getting to the analysis of the fight, Gamer would most likely attempt to go for the takedowns from the minute go as Diego Ferriera has faced many problems on the ground in his last two bouts. If we compare the striking then both the fighters are evenly matched up as they tend to land significant power punches.
So in order to win this bout, Diego has to display a stellar takedown defense. Besides, he needs to make maximum use of his significant reach advantage and land a large volume of strikes.
However, that is easier said than done. Thus one can expect Mateusz Gamrot to overpower Ferreira with his wrestling and finish his opponent with ground and pound strikes.
