WALKER JOHNNY vs SANTOS THIAGO Prediction & Preview – Live MMA UFC Boxing Streams

This Saturday, the UFC provides a solid match card to follow up on an excellent UFC 266 last weekend, and with that comes the potential for a lot of stop wins.

UFC Fight Night 193, which is the headline of heavy-hitting lightweight heavyweight athletes Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker, boasts plenty of intrigue from fighters changing weight classes to two of the wildest fighters on the team list squaring off.

Thiago Santos (21-9) vs Johnny Walker (18-5)

BOther fighters are known for their knockout power, but how they achieve their highs victories tends to be very different.

While Johnny Walker tends to be explosive and aggressive early on, Santos is much more comfortable with the action coming towards him and can counter his opponents.

With the power both men pack, this can end at any time, but I will for the time being stand with the older statesmen of Santos to get the victory.

Despite his poor form, Santos has been competitive in all his fights and appears to carry injuries at 205 lbs better than Walker can.

Select: Thiago Santos

Kevin Holland (21-7) vs. Kyle Daukaus (10-2)

Holland’s willingness to tackle his removal defense makes this a fascinating match, as he is likely to be tested in the realm of Daukaus.

On its feet, Holland has been a major threat thanks to output, range and power, and should the fight remain upright, you would want the ‘Trailblazer’ to connect with some powerful shots.

For Daukaus to win, he will have to work hard all the time to keep Holland down, but I’m not sure he has the quality to deliver a dominant controlling performance for 15 minutes..

Select: Kevin Holland

Alex Oliveira (22-10-1, 2 NC) vs.Niko Price (14-5, 2 NC)

Both Oliveira and Price are strong and unpredictable inside the octagon, but I think the Brazilian wars are catching up with him.

Although his long strikes may cause some problems, Price is just as slow but much more active on his feet.

Because of their ruthless abandonment, there is potential to either catch the other with something big, but all the signs point to ‘The Hybrid’ picking up the win.

Misha Cirkunov (15-6) against Krzysztof Jotko (22-5)

It will be interesting to see how Cirkunov reacts to a drop in weight class as his problems with light heavyweight tended to come from a weak chin.

Whether due to the power of 205 lbs or Cirkunov himself, it will probably be the deciding factor in how successful he will be at the middleweight limit.

Technically, Cirkunov is a talented grappler and also quite active on his feet. Jotko is similarly pretty well-rounded, but he lacks athleticism or power to get beyond his perennial # 15 ranking.

If Jotko had more stitches behind his strikes, this could be a really tough test for Cirkunov, but I think this will be a solid welcome to 185 lbs for the Latvian-Canadian.

Select: Misha Cirkunov

Alexander Hernandez (12-4) vs. Mike Breeden (10-3)

Breeden appears to be a scrappy and willing fighter, but Hernandez has the much larger sides inside the cage.

Whether it’s athletics, power or in his wrestling, Hernandez seems to have the edge over his opponent at short notice.

Breeden’s best chance is to take the fight to Hernandez and maybe play on the confidence issues ‘The Great’ has, but I can not see a return to winning ways for Hernandez in the past.

Select: Alexander Hernandez
