Elias Theodorou vs. Cezar Ferreira
A spot in the middleweight top 15 could be up for grabs when Elias Theodorou faces Cezar Ferreira on Sunday.
Theodorou battles at a blistering pace as he makes it one of his primary objectives to push his challenger from bell to bell. He lands 3.45 strikes per minute, almost double that of his challenger, and absorbs less strikes per minute (1.9) than the typical UFC fighter (2.5).
Ferreira lands a much lower volume than Theodorou however packs a bit more power and knows ways to mix in takedowns to win rounds.
Ferreira might be the more skilled fighter, here, but I think Theodorou’s speed and grinding style helps him walk away with the win.
Forecast: Elias Theodorou by decision
