UFC Fight Night: Natan Levy vs Mike Breeden Fight Breakdown and Prediction
Both Natan Levy and Mike Breeden are extremely aggressive fighters with good boxing skills. However, their over-aggressive approach while striking was a major reason for their downfall in the last bouts.

What separates the two lightweights is their grappling skills. Levy is extremely dangerous on the ground as he has the ability to submit his opponents by getting into good positions. Despite not having the best takedown defense, if Natan Levy mixes it up with his striking and takedown attempts then he could have an upper hand in this bout.
