UFC On FOX 17: Strikezone Predictions

ufc on fox 17

The crew on “UFC Tonight” offered up their thoughts on tonight’s UFC on FOX 17 event during a recent episode.

Florian on what Dos Anjos usually does well in fights

“He’s the best pressure fighter in UFC. He does it with his footwork and with his big power. He does it by cutting off the cage. He always follows you. He’ll stay right in front of you. If you go left, he’ll throw the overhand left. He landed that against Cerrone in the first fight. If you go wide, he’ll throw the left high kick. If you go right, he throws the right hook. That’s how he knocked out Benson Henderson.”

Bisping on Dos Anjos’ key’s to victory

“He’s got to use his footwork and he’s got to hit without getting hit. He’s got to throw combos – get in the face of Cerrone and let the combos fly. And he’s got to score the takedowns and be unpredictable.”

Florian on Cerrone’s key’s to victory

“Cerrone can be a slow starter. But when he gets going he’s tough to stop and has a killer instinct. He’s got to control the distance. He’s taller and longer and has to keep Dos Anjos on the outside. He has to apply constant pressure. He’s got to come with his offense and move forward. Finally, he’s got to stop the takedown.”
