In the Welterweight division, we have a showdown between Dwight ‘The Body Snatcher’ Grant and Francisco ‘Massaranduba’ Trinaldo. With three wins in his last four, Grant seems to be headed in the right direction. However, Grant will be tasked to beat Trinaldo. A veteran, who has twenty three fights inside the octagon. At 43 years old, Trinaldo continues to defy time. While the Brazilian dropped his most recent fight, prior to it, he had won three consecutive.
I’m not sure what to make of this fight, as Francisco Trinaldo just can never be counted out. At his age, you’d think father time would have paid him a visit. However, father time has taken a back seat, as he continues to beat up those younger than him. Dwight Grant though will look buck that trend. The American is a striker who while hesitant to throw his hands, has legitimate knockout power. With seven of his eleven wins coming via knockout, Trinaldo will have to be wary of getting caught clean. The Brazilian is not afraid to trade on the feet though, as two of his last four wins have come via knockout. Obviously though, Trinaldo would prefer to get the fight to the mat, where he has shown to have excellent top control.
As for a prediction, I’m going to go with Trinaldo by the slightest of margins. While I believe Grant is the better striker, I do worry that he gets taken down. Trinaldo may not be a brute on the ground, but his ability to smother opponents and grab control time, has led him to several wins. Now, I could be totally off on this. Grant could shrug off the grappling, keep this standing and use his reach and power edge to outpoint Trinaldo. However, Trinaldo has a tendency to surprise and I certainly want to be on the side of him yet again defying the odds. So with all that said, I predict that Trinaldo wins via decision.
PICK: Francisco Trinaldo (-125)
