THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Abu Azaitar welcomes Vitor Miranda to Germany and Miranda welcomes Azaitar into the UFC. Azaitar is finally in the UFC after going unbeaten in his last nine fights although he has not fought since October 2016.

Miranda has also had a year off and is coming off two dominant decision losses to Chris Camozzi and Marvin Vettori but this is a fantastic match-up as they are both extremely talented strikers. They are both desperate to shake off any ring rust and claim a spectacular knockout.

THE PREDICTION

On paper, this should be a masterclass in striking and what is often the case when two upper echelon strikers meet is that they begin rather tentatively, respecting each other’s talents. Add in the fact that they have not fought for a long time and this is Azaitar’s debut, and they may need time to settle but when they do it should be a spectacle.

Although Azaitar has been inactive, the thrill of his UFC debut should bring out the best in him, especially fighting at home in a favourable match-up.

Winner: Azaitar via Decision
