  • Current champion & #10 UFC

Pound for Pound fighter Alexandre Pantoja, comes into this fight riding a solid performance over Brandon Moreno.

Pantoja is an experienced fighter with a record of 26-5 with 18 of those wins coming inside the distance. On the feet, he will throw volume, and a mix of kicks, punches & nasty elbow strikes. reference -

"Pantoja is averaging 4.41 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 48%. He is absorbing 3.81 and has a striking defense of 51%. His grappling is also solid, averaging 1.75 takedowns per every 15 minutes and 1.0 submission attempts during the same time period"

Brandon Royval Preview

  • The Challenger Brandon Royval comes into this fight on a hot three-fight win streak, & two quick first-round finishes in his last two fights.

Royval 15-6 currently, has a wild style of kill or be killed lately. Likes to bring the pace forward, will throw some spinning attacks or wild knees that are dangerous when successful but is also very receptive to a takedown. Royval has under 50% takedown defense, will often rely on getting backup. Reference

"Royval is only decent at grappling, averaging 0.66 takedowns per every 15 minutes and 2.3 submission attempts during the same time period. His takedown accuracy is 100% and he has a takedown defense of 39%."

Prediction- Pantoja has shown great durability against some dangerous fighters like Figueiredo, Moreno & even Royval previously, besides a puncher's chance I just don't see an advantage here for Royval. Pantoja has his beat everywhere in my opinion and not just his fighting advantages physically, he also mentally comes with a great game plan and such a strong Jit Jits Su game.
