UFC Fight Night: Curtis Blaydes vs Derrick Lewis Predictions

Curtis Blaydes vs Derrick Lewis 

Toppling off Justin Willis, Shamil Abdurakhimov, Junior Dos Santos and Alexander Volkov, Curtis Blaydes is on a four-match winning streak. Winning 14 clashes, losing in two and one no contest, Blaydes is ranked third in his weight class trailing Stipe Miocic and Ngannou. If the Razor cut the Black Beast into two, he can contend for the heavyweight title once the Ngannou-Miocic result is released. Shedding light on Blaydes two knockouts, Junior Dos Santos and Shamil Abdurakhimov, out of last four matches the pairing looks terrific and a power-laden fight it will be.

Once in the Octagon, Lewis prefers to end his fights early as possible, his profile stands witness, knocking out 16 leaving only four to the judges’ decision. Although, the Black Beast can travel the distance if needed, fighting till the third round in two of his last three fights. Derrick Lewis created a record for most UFC heavyweight knockouts by knocking off Aleksei Oleinik through a TKO earlier this year.

Starting his journey as a boxer before shifting to MMA, Lewis can stand up straight to deliver hooks, spicing it up with flying knees and kicks irrespective of his mammoth figure and finish everything off with a big right hand. Blaydes’ style of fighting is different, he grapples, holds, spears in, fights on the ground, he is cunning. Lewis lost to Junior Dos Santos, won against Francis Ngannou. Interestingly, Blaydes lost to Ngannou twice, won against Junior Dos Santos. Although Lewis is a colossal opponent and he can turn the table if he stays for long, Blaydes will probably outwit him.

Renato Moicano vs Rafael Fiziev                                     

Renato Moicano had a whale of a time submitting Damir Hadzovic at UFC Brasilia as he moved up to the lightweight category. Moicano is a submission specialist, reigning a victor in half of his bouts through submission. However, the former featherweight championship contender came a cropper against Chan Sung Jung and Jose Aldo, both of them via technical knockouts. The Brazilian is a hothead sludging Hadzovic, after the match ended, stands testimony.

Rafael Fiziev rebounded back getting the best of Alex White and Marc Diakiese, after his debut defeat to Magamed Mustafaev. Going as an underdog agin Diakiese in his previous bout, Fiziev stood his ground delivering blow after blow to the Bonecrusher while defending his high switch knees. The Kyrgyzstani fighter has won five of his nine matches through knockouts, so the upcoming fight night can become the ground to unleash the knockout beast hidden within him. Moicano might have a slight upper hand in terms of size and experience, but Fiziev has proved that he is unstoppable through his recent clashes.

Josh Parisian vs Parker Porter                                                         

An import from Dana White’s Contender Series Josh Parisian, debuts in the octagon clashing with Parker Porter. A spinning back fist? That’s how Parisian finished Greg Rebello in the first round at DWTNCS. Parisian missed the chance to make it to the Octagon two years before when he lost an Ultimate Fighter contest following a victory in the Contender Series. Parker Porter made his debut into UFC earlier this year, against Chris Daukaus, the fight he lost through knockout. Josh Parisian is on a streak of six wins, smashing them all through knockouts. Standing at 6′ 4″, size is on Parisian’s favour. Porter is a ruthless fighter in his own right and will mostly shrug the debut loss when he enters the octagon. Nonetheless, Josh Parisian is on a momentum and he will mostly carry it till the end.

Gina Mazany vs Rachael Ostovich                                                  

After getting suspended for an out-of-competition urine test in January, Rachael Ostovich is back into the octagon. Rachael’s career wasn’t rosy even before that, succumbing to Paige VanZant’s armbar and Montana De La Rosa’s rear-naked choke. Her sole victory inside the Octagon came in her debut subduing Karine Gevorgyan via an armbar. Rachael’s chances of lasting the fight are minimal based on her record of four wins and five losses.

Gina Mazany will be eager to bounce back following her whirlwind loss to Julia Avila in the first round through a TKO, after just getting promoted to the UFC. Mazany has stepped down to flyweight for her clash against Ostovich, which gives her a major advantage in terms of power. Add the height factor, and she might become ‘Danger’ against Ostovich. Even if it doesn’t go all her way, this fight will at the least be entertaining not like Mazany’s wild debut as Mazany and Ostovich enter the Octagon as equals more or less.

Anthony Smith vs Devin Clark

‘Lionheart’ Anthony Smith will be looking to bounce back after two losses this year, a technical knockout by Glover Teixeira in May and defeat by decision on August to Aleksandar Rakic. Ranking sixth in the light heavyweight division, Smith has lost three of his last four fights, a title clash against Jon Jones being one among them. The Muay Thai fighter’s overall record is on the bad side too, losing five times in the Octagon out of his 13 appearances. Golden days of his career between 2017 and 2018 has vanished off and it was apparent in Rakic fight when the Austrian repeatedly punished Smith.

Devin Clark’s profile is also not that impressive but his form is. Clark is on a 2-match winning streak after beating an unbeaten Alonzo Menifield and Dequan Townsend by decision earlier this year. He is a hitter but not a knockout fighter like Smith. Clark can win this fight if he can thrive for five minutes and make use of Smith’s fatigue. Having an unflattering technique, Clarke might hope for the best but Lionheart will probably be the one celebrating at the end of the day.

Miguel Baeza vs Takashi Sato

Takashi ‘Ten’ Sato touches gloves with ‘Caramel Thunder’ Miguel Baeza under the Welterweight division. Kissing the canvas hasn’t happened for Baeza before and in UFC. Matt Brown and Hector Aldana fell to the ground receiving kicks and punches from the ‘Caramel Thunder’. Opening the stanza in UFC opposition to Ben Saunders, the taste of victory came in the second round for Sato as he TKO’d Saunders landing punches and elbows.

Knockouts are the go-to weapon for the two rivals, Baeza loves it more triumphing in seven of his nine matches through knockouts. On the other hand, Sato procured eleven of his 16 wins were through KO/TKO. The Pancrase veteran certainly has the skill, does he have the heart? Baeza is formidable in the Octagon compared to his rival. Indeed, Sato’s come back agin Jason Witt after Belal Muhammad was exceptional but, facing the Caramel thunder in the Octagon would be a herculean task for the Japanese. The prisoner of war, in the end, will be Sato as Baeza subdues him in his homeland.
