ANDRE FILI VS BILL ALGEO LOWDOWN
Andre Fili (21-9(1)) was preparing for Lando Vannata which was great matchmaking especially as the vets have struggled to get any streaks going. Fili is 9-8(1) in the UFC now but he is not getting worse, just the standard of competition continues to evolve. His last win was a split decision over Charles Jourdain (2019) and he has since got wrestled for three rounds by Bryce Mitchell (2020), poked Daniel Pineda (2021 – no contest) in the eye and got TKO’d by Joanderson Brito back in April.
Bill Algeo (16-6) steps in for Vannata and although he lost two of his first three UFC fights, he is coming off two impressive wins. One of those includes a unanimous decision over Brito back in January and followed it up five months later with a ‘Performance of the Night’ forcing Herbert Burns to retire. Those wins came with great relief after losing two of his first three fights which all went to a unanimous decision.
ANDRE FILI VS BILL ALGEO PREDICTION
This is still a great match-up. They stack up very similarly physically and are both well-rounded. They both brilliant strikers, particularly from range, but if there is one discrepancy, it is the grappling.
Fili is a very underrated grappler. He is a solid wrestler with good jiu-jitsu and Algeo has been taken down is all of his fights with a mediocre 54% defence.
We expect a mixture of striking and grappling here, and the more grappling there is, the more you have to back Fili. So, this depends on Fili’s strategy. The more boring he makes it, the better chance he has, but he does not like to do boring.
Fili is the slight favourite due to his wrestling and as this is destined to be a very close and competitive scrap, the value is with Algeo especially with his cardio and volume.
