MMA Preview – Thiago Santos vs Jack Hermansson at UFC Fight Night 119

Date: Sunday 29th October, 2am (UK)

Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil

Venue: Ginasio do Ibirapuera

Thiago Santos welcomes Jack Hermansson for his second fight in Brazil and the two are fully expected to put on a show and contend for ‘Fight of the Night’.

Santos is a UFC veteran, amassing a record of 7-4, and is coming off two superb knockouts over Jack Marshman and Gerald Meerschaert. Santos is no slouch on the ground but makes it clear he wants the fight to stay on the feet and why wouldn’t he with a black belt in Muay Thai.

Hermansson has looked electrifying throughout his career, finishing 13 of his 16 wins with 10 knockouts. Last time he fought in São Paulo, he got caught in an arm triangle courtesy of Cezar Ferreira but bounced back with two blistering knockouts in the first round.

The key stat highlighted is their tally of knockouts, illustrating their preferred game plans. Both will hunt each other’s chin which will have all the fans on the edge of their seat.
