Khalil Rountree Jr. (-205) is set to face off against Chris Daukaus (+175) in the UFC Fight Night: Luque vs. Dos Anjos headliner bout. Rountree is coming off a first round submission win over Don’Tale Mayes, while Daukaus earned a split-decision victory against Parker Porter at UFC Vegas 9 last month. Both fighters have impressive resumes and this should be an exciting battle between two of the top light heavyweights in the world.
Rountree has been on an impressive run lately, with four wins in his past five fights and all but one ending within the distance (his only decision loss came against Johnny Walker back in 2018). Rountree possesses some of the most powerful striking in MMA today and he will look to use that power to overwhelm Daukaus early on Saturday night. His unorthodox striking style makes him very unpredictable and dangerous for any opponent standing across from him inside of the octagon. He also has plenty of experience inside of UFC’s Octagon after participating in 20 professional bouts already; this could prove invaluable when facing someone like Daukaus who will be making his promotional debut at this event – as well as fighting at such a high level for only his fifth professional fight overall!
Daukaus entered into combat sports late compared to other combatants in his weight class, which works both ways – it can give freshness or lack experience depending on how you look at it! The Philadelphia native recently signed with UFC after putting together an impressive amateur record before having just 4 pro fights thus far (3-1). He brings a heavy hands approach when entering into any match up, along with quick feet and good conditioning which allows him to keep up pressure throughout each round that he competes if needed…This gives him an advantage despite being relatively new to competing professionally due to how little damage he takes per fight statistically speaking (resulting from good defensive skills combined with effective offense!). Additionally, even though there may not be much tape available on Daukaus yet considering that most fans don’t know what exactly they’re getting themselves into by betting/watching this matchup–it’s likely going be quite entertaining nonetheless given their respective styles!
Overall, I think Khalil Rountree Jr (-205) has too many tools for Chris Daukaus (+175) here as he possesses more experience than his opponent both within and outside of UFC’s Octagon — so my prediction would have Rountree taking home the win via TKO/KO sometime around mid-to-late rounds due mainly due aggressive striking power & technique advantages possessed by himself rather than technical ones like wrestling etc., It’ll certainly be interesting however if we witness something else entirely come out during their contest come Saturday night….
