ANTHONY HERNANDEZ VS MARC-ANDRE BARRIAULT LOWDOWN
Anthony Hernandez (9-2(1)) is as consistent as he is exciting to watch. On his debut he got caught in Markus Perez’s (2019) Anaconda choke. Six months later he wrapped his own Anaconda around Jun Yong Park but then went on to get poleaxed by Kevin Holland’s (2020) knee. As a reward, he was paired with the unbeaten jiu-jitsu master Rodolfo Vieira (2021) and pulled off one of the biggest upsets in terms of a result by submitting the Brazilian in the second round. He followed that up with a more routine unanimous decision over Josh Fremd back in April and is now ready for his second fight of the year.
Marc-Andre Barriault (14-5-1 (1)) is also not one for consistency and his last two results this year were very surprising. Not necessarily the outcomes but how they were finished. He entered 2022 off the back of a brilliant TKO over Abu Azaitar (2021) and unanimous decision over Dalcha Lungiambula (2021). He was then lined up for Chidi Njokuani’s debut who is also on the card and suffered the first knockout loss of his career. He then took on Jordan Wright and was expected to knock him out or grind out a decision however, he decided to mix things up by claiming his first submission win.
ANTHONY HERNANDEZ VS MARC-ANDRE BARRIAULT PREDICTION
Expect Barriault to try and walk Hernandez down and attempt to break his will with his heavy output and weight in the clinch. He relies on his durability and cardio, but he is up against someone who will not slow down.
Hernandez has exceptional cardio and his jiu-jitsu skills are plain to see. Barriault will look stronger in the clinch, but he will have to be careful if he tries to drag the fight to the ground as if he leaves his neck exposed, Hernandez will pounce on a guillotine.
We expect the majority of this fight to play out on the feet with Hernandez threatening the takedown and Barriault the clinch. This will be a very competitive scrap, but we are leaning towards Hernandez with better output and the cardio to finish the third round stronger to sway the judges.
