Two of the most surging fighters in the UFC meet in this Welterweight Division battle as Demian Maia and Jorge Masvidal get set for battle.
Demian Maia dropped down to the Welterweight Division and has rattled off 6 straight wins, looking extremely impressive in each one.
What has been his recipe for success during this run has been his ability to control kind of the tempo and the style of fighting in his bouts.
He’s extremely good on the mat and once he gets his opponent down, it’s almost game over.
On the other hand, Masvidal he will do everything he possibly can to keep this fight up on his feet. He has a solid striking ability, but besides that, he doesn’t have many other edges on his side.
Maia has him in the experience category, which may be the biggest thing. He’s an experienced fighter that knows when to make his move as he’ll just wear you down.
Masvidal simply cannot let this fight drag on. He’ll have to get to Maia early and often and hope he can land a strike that really injures the veteran.
