Justin Gaethje

  • Height/Weight: 5' 11", 156 lbs
  • Record: 25-4-0 (20 TKO, 1 SUB)

Justin Gaethje is known for his relentless pressure and devastating knockout power. With 20 of his 25 wins coming by TKO, Gaethje possesses one-punch knockout ability that can end fights in an instant. He also has a strong wrestling background, allowing him to control the fight and dictate where it takes place.

Recent Performance:

Gaethje is coming off an impressive victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 291, where he secured a KO/TKO victory in the second round. With a string of dominant performances against top contenders, Gaethje has established himself as one of the most dangerous fighters in the lightweight division.

 

Max Holloway

  • Height/Weight: 5' 11", 146 lbs
  • Record: 25-7-0 (11 TKO, 2 SUB)
  • Team: Gracie Technics
  • Nickname: Blessed
  • Stance: Orthodox

Strengths:

Max Holloway is a dynamic striker with exceptional boxing skills and cardio for days. He overwhelms his opponents with volume and accuracy, wearing them down as the fight progresses. Holloway's ability to maintain a high output throughout the fight makes him a difficult puzzle to solve for anyone in the featherweight division.

Recent Performance:

Holloway's most recent victory came against Chan Sung Jung at UFC Fight Night, where he secured a KO/TKO victory in the third round. Despite facing tough competition in the past, including losses to Alexander Volkanovski, Holloway remains one of the top contenders in the featherweight division.

 

Prediction:

Max Holloway's superior boxing skills and relentless pace will be the keys to victory in this matchup. Holloway's ability to control the distance and dictate the pace of the fight will frustrate Gaethje and prevent him from unleashing his trademark power shots. Additionally, Holloway's cardio advantage will allow him to maintain a high output throughout the fight, wearing down Gaethje and eventually securing a late TKO victory.
