UFC, Ultimate Fighting Championship is going to host another battle between two hungry fighters who are still in their prime, Curtis Razer Blaydes vs. Junior dos Santos. The pair is going to face each other at UFC Fight Night 166 on the 25th of January,2020. Both are looking to knock their opponent out in the cage and get a path towards the title shot. Here we are going to have a glance at the strengths and weaknesses of both to predict a winner.

Firstly, we will have a look at the Blaydes; If we look at Razor’s 15 match career, we come to know that he has 12 wins and 2 losses while one was declared “no contest” as he was tested positive for marijuana when he fought against Adam Milstead in January 2017. Nine times he has knocked his opponents out and 3 times he has won by a decision. The American has 2 “Performance of the Night” awards in his whole career and he has not won any “Knockout of the Night” in his 9 stoppage victories. When we take a look at his strengths, we come to know that he can hit his opponents hard and can knock them out at any stage of the fight, we cannot forget a fight when he knocked the former heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem out with brutal elbows in the third round of the match. Winning 3 bouts through the decision show him as a good point scorer but we also have to keep in mind that he was knocked 2 times out and his opponent was the same on both occasions; Francis Ngannou.  Now we have to wait until he goes in the cage against his deadly opponent.

In the other corner, we have Junior dos Santos who has more experience and has faced more tough opposition as compared to Curtis, he is the former heavyweight champion. The Brazilian fighter has 3 “Knockout of the Night” and 2 “Fight of the Night” awards on his credit. He has been the heavyweight champion and once he has defended his title before giving it back to Cain Velasquez. The Brazilian has fought 27 times and out of those, 21 times he was victorious and 15 times he has taken the fight from the hands of judges by knocking his opponents out, Once he won by submission and the rest by decision. He has the power to smash his opponent’s face with brutal punches along with the ability to score points. We all remember how he knocked Mark Hunt out by spinning hook kick, furthermore, when he successfully defended his heavyweight title against Frank Mir and knocked him out in the second round of that game.


Now, if we compare the pair, we come to know that both are able to surprise the other one. Blaydes can win the bout through his technique while dos Santos has the power, stamina, and most of all, he has the experience of fighting the elite class fighters. He has never inhaled marijuana before facing deadly fighters in the cage.

Prediction: Junior dos Santos TKO 3.
