Jack Hermansson’s Path to Victory
Coming off a four-fight win streak, it’s no surprise that Hermansson is the betting favorite. In his most recent bouts he took out the perennial contender Jacare in a five round decision, proving that he is skilled everywhere. The Swedish fighter will also have home court advantage against Cannonier which statistically improves his winning odds. If Hermansson can avoid the big shots and leg kicks of Cannonier, it will be an easy night for “The Killa Gorilla.” Both men are dangerous in many aspects, however Hermannson will have the edge in being dangerous on the ground.
Jared Cannonier’s Path to Victory
Cannonier may not have the win streak that his opponent currently holds, but he has shown a massive growth in his skills in his last two outings. Against the former G.O.A.T. Anderson Silva, “The Killa Gorilla” quickly ended the bout with violent blows upstairs and ultimately to the leg. The precision and strength is going to be a danger for any opponent. The question is can Cannonier hang on the ground with a top five middleweight? If the answer is yes, we may be looking at the next middleweight contender.
Warning, our Hermansson vs Cannonier prediction is not a lock bet, but based on how their styles match up. Hermansson has more tools to finish the fight, and is the more well rounded fighter, however that is not the way MMA plays out usually. Look at Khabib if you need an example of what dominance in one aspect can do. Cannonier is showing glimpses of being the most dangerous dark horse in the division. Look for an upset TKO win for Cannonier on Sept. 18. Hermansson has the skills to win, however his stand-up is good enough to get him in trouble in the mid rounds.
