THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Khalil Rountree Jr. welcomes Brazilian Johnny Walker for his UFC debut and on paper, this could easily be a ‘fight of the night’ contender. Although Rountree has looked rather one-dimensional so far in his career, he is a stand-up beast with severe knockout power but Walker has the skills to match.

The Brazilian is also a stand-up specialist and has a huge frame. Add in the fact he has 11 knockout wins, and you have the reason why fans have been eagerly awaiting his UFC debut.

THE PREDICTION

This will be fireworks on the feet but may not last long. Rountree displayed his confidence by deciding to stand with the multiple time world champion Kickboxer Gokhan Saki and starching him in the first round in his last fight.

Walker is also most comfortable in rendering opponents unconscious and with a sizable reach advantage, he will be confident of lighting Rountree up but he does tend to engage in brawls which is a terrible idea against Rountree. A lot of Walker's knockout wins have come in the clinch and in scrambles but he is going to have to keep the distance in this fight as one mistake will shut the lights off.

Winner: Rountree via KO/TKO
