THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

The first casualty of the main card in Hamburg was Ilir Latifi which has led to Corey Anderson filling the void to take on another Brazilian veteran in Glover Teixeira. Another rescheduling, but thankfully we have another great fight on paper.

At the ripe old age of 38, Teixeira is still a menace and has one of the strongest skill sets in the division. He is a nasty boxer and a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace. However, his new opponent is an exceptional wrestler who believes he can overpower and overwhelm the dangerous Brazilian.

THE PREDICTION

They have both bounced back from devastating knockouts but they know a win is essential in maintaining their title challenging hopes – especially Teixeira. We should expect Anderson to initiate the pace with takedown attempts.

Teixeira will be confident if the fight goes to the ground but he knows the grappling will be the young American’s easiest route to victory so he will try and keep the fight standing and despite the stats, he is a better striker.

Although both men are susceptible to a knockout, they are also both more than capable of delivering one, but this fight is likely to end via a Teixeira knockout or an Anderson decision and will come down to the success of Anderson’s wrestling.

Winner: Teixeira via KO/TKO
