MARCIN TYBURA VS WALT HARRIS LOWDOWN

Marcin Tybura (21-6) is enjoying the best form of his UFC career so far. After getting knocked out twice in a row back in 2019 by Shamil Abdurakhimov and Augusto Sakai, he has gone on an excellent four-fight win streak. He started 2020 with a unanimous decision over Sergey Spivak and earnt two more over Maxim Grishin and Ben Rothwell. He then capped off a brilliant year by knocking out Greg Hardy in December.

Walt Harris (13-9(1)) had a completely contrasting 2020. In 2019, he knocked out Spivak and Alexey Oleynik but at the end of the year he had to deal with the sickening news of the abduction and murder of his stepdaughter. He somehow found the courage to get back in the cage in May last year but got knocked out by Alistair Overeem and again by Alexander Volkov in October.

MARCIN TYBURA VS WALT HARRIS PREDICTION

Harris is not getting any easy fights gifted to him. but he will be eyeing up those four knockout losses on Tybura’s record. All 13 of Harris’ wins have come via knockout and he knows he requires one touch of leather to walk away with a 14th.

Tybura can strike as well but he knows he needs to avoid Harris’ hands at all costs so we can expect him to call upon his grappling where he has a significant advantage. Harris has good takedown defence, so he will have to work hard to get him down.

If Tybura does get the fight to the ground, a submission is likely as Tybura is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Harris has a weakness off his back. Tybura also has the cardio advantage, so a Tybura decision or late submission is most likely, but with Harris’ explosiveness and speed, a knockout is always one punch away.
