UFC 252 Fight Analysis

Updated: Sep 8

There has been a lot of buzz around the heavyweight GOAT question in the past week so allow me to give the correct answer: Stipe and Fedor are the 2 best heavyweights of all time - I don't really care what order you decide to put them in but nothing will change after tonight. Fedor advocates will cite his incredible record over the years in and Stipe defenders will point to his record breaking number of UFC title defenses against stiffer and more consistent competition. Either way, DC winning does not elevate his heavyweight status over either of these two. While he is a great heavyweight, one title defense against Derrick Lewis does not propel you into GOAT status.


..Unless you are the type of person that ranks Chris Weidman over Anderson Silva, then I really have nothing to say to you.


Career statistics breakdown of the key match ups tonight:


Picks:


Sean O'Malley -265

Notes: The height, the reach, the legend.


Jim Miller +105

Notes: Miller had a nice performance in his last bout and I think he will continue with the

momentum.


Junior Dos Santos +108

Notes: Serious question - do you trust Rozenstruik bouncing back this early after that

Ngannou loss?


Stipe Miocic -106

Notes: Full disclosure I am a big Stipe fan so take this pick with a grain of salt


Virna Jandiroba -315

Notes: See Herrig's "Opponent Signature Strikes per Minute".


Ashley Yoder +130

Notes: Yoder is 2-4 in the UFC and coming off a loss. She does have a significant height

and reach advantage in this fight and I am hoping she can put that to use.


Herbert Burns -250

Notes: Burns is 2-0 in the UFC and going up against a struggling opponent in Daniel

Pineda.
