An exciting fight in the Heavyweight division is upon us, as Alexandr ‘King Kong’ Romanov takes on Jared ‘The Mountain’ Vanderaa. This will be Romanov’s second appearance in 2021, as the undefeated Moldovan narrily edged out Juan Espino in a technical split decision. One that snapped Romanov’s 100% finishing rate. Meanwhile, Vanderaa most recently nabbed his first UFC victory over Justin Tafa. A fight in which Vanderaa landed a whopping 121 significant strikes, while also taking home the Fight of the Night bonus.
This is going to be a fun fight for however long it lasts, as both men enter this fight with a knack of finishing opponents. Alexandr Romanov is a well rounded fighter, who has shown a propensity to take opponents down. In three UFC fights, Romanov has landed eight takedowns. In two of those fights, he has won via submission. Jared Vanderaa will like to avoid being taken down, as the Heavyweight profiles as a striker. With good cardio and an ability to fire off strikes at a high output, Vanderaa isn’t someone that can easily be outpointed on the feet.
As for a prediction, I have Romanov winning. In Vanderaa’s debut against Serghei Spivac, he showed an inability to stay upright. In fact, Spivac was successful in all three takedown attempts. While on the mat, Spivac controlled Vanderaa for a whopping 8:30 of the 9:32 of the fight - eventually winning via TKO. Given all that, I don’t see how Vanderaa doesn’t suffer the same fate. Romanov is a strong wrestler, who is insanely active with ground-and-pound and submission attempts. In other words, this fight ends in round one via TKO.
PICK: Alexander Romanov (-550)
