Ultimate Fight Night 71: Mir vs. Duffee Preview
In addition to making his UFC debut, he has not competed as a pro since , he fought 7-times that year, and began his career just one year earlier. The heavily-muscled Russian has also never fought beyond the opening round, finishing most of his foes inside the first half of frame 1.
Of his 9 stoppages, 6 have come by submission- mostly choke-based finishes. Johnson has gone the distance in 4 consecutive fights, including his 3 UFC wins. His low completion percentage is a product of dogged pursuit of the takedown. In addition to the aforementioned issues, there is a lot of controversy surrounding Yandiev. Sekulic is riding a 2-fight winning streak after rebounding from injury based TKO loss.
Sekulic is replacing Claudio Silva on roughly 2 weeks notice. A former M-1 Middleweight champion, Emeev has finished 10 opponents- 7 by knockout. His 2 UFC victories are the product of a low volume grinding attacking- working in the clinch with a couple of key takedowns while limiting the output of his foe. Emeev made his Welterweight debut against Mina which should give him a better feel for how his body will perform this time around.
Winning the majority of his fights by submission 6 , Sekulic has a pretty decent takedown game to go along with an opportunistic guillotine choke. All of his submission wins transpire early in the fight, suggesting he switches his focus to controlling position over submission if he is unable to get the early stoppage. This could be a closely contested fight with both men offering similar skill sets.
Dvalishvili will also attempt to break his UFC slump, as he has been defeated in both Octagon tussles- including a controversial submission loss to Ricky Simon. Dvalishvili is the younger man by 5-years. Mail will not be published required. Stephens vs Choi Jan. Miocic vs Ngannou Jan. Jacare vs Brunson 2 February Feb. Machida vs Anders Feb.
