Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Chris Weidman and Brad Tavares fight this weekend (Saturday, August 19, 2023) at UFC 292 inside the TD Garden in Boston. Massachusetts
It’s been over two years since Weidman was seen in the Octagon, breaking his leg almost immediately upon a collision with Uriah Hall (try it if you dare). Orson Silva, but it’s a testament to his determination that he will definitely return. At 39, only Weidman still believes his dream is alive and well. But this fight should be a complete reveal of his current abilities. Tavares is a well-tested middleweight challenger. A perfectly consistent veteran who has been in the shooting range of the top 10 for as long as anyone can remember.
Let’s take a closer look at the keys to victory for each of them:
win key: Anderson Silva (UFC 168, UFC 162), Kelvin Gastelum (UFC on FOX 25), Lyoto Machida (UFC 175), Vitor Belfort (UFC 187)
loss of keys: Uriah Hall (UFC 261), Luke Rockhold (UFC 194), Yoel Romero (UFC 205), Ronaldo Souza (UFC 230), Dominick Reyes (UFC on ESPN 6).
key to victory: At the peak Wideman is a well-rounded athlete and an outstanding physique with positive all-around skill. However, what really elevates him to a championship is his ability to strategize games intelligently and stay calm in fights. top fighter
in this competition I think it’s very important that Weidman doesn’t rely too much on subversion. That doesn’t mean he shouldn’t fight at all. Because that’s his greatest strength. at the same time If we were to rank Tavares’ skill, his attack defense was his best feature by a fair margin. The most likely outcome was that he was exhausted after his initial successes.
Luckily, Weidman was able to hit the Hawaiian, assuming Weidman still had nearly the same speed. He should be able to punch Tavares by putting pressure in the mix. Tavares’ chin had cracked before. And Wild Man can hurt him too.
Major victories: Krzysztof Jotko (UFC on FOX 29), Thales Leites (UFC 216), Elias Theodorou (TUF 25 Finale), Lorenz Larkin (UFC Fight Night 35), Nate Marquardt (UFC 182), Antonio Carlos Junior (UFC 257), Omari Akhmedov. (UFC 264)
Key loss: Israel Adesanya (TUF 27 Finale), Yoel Romero (UFC on FOX 11), Robert Whittaker (UFC Fight Night 65), Dricus du Plessis (UFC 276), Bruno Silva (UFC Vegas 71).
Key to Victory: Tavares is the epitome of consistency. Tavares is the best goalkeeper in the division’s history who flirt with his top 10 a few times. with a reasonable rate and still hard to fall
Again, look at the resume above: Tavares fought everyone!
Tavares’ leg kick is probably his best weapon. He’s not an amazing artist. Therefore, defeating an opponent is crucial for his success. Luckily, Wildman’s leg kick was a good idea in the past. Silva broke his leg and Tavares set up a good kick. Therefore, checking is not a concern.
Actually, the key to outlasting Wildman Even at his best, Weidman is a fast starter who tends to slow down a bit over time. Can the 39-year-old keep up with Tavares? If the Hawaiian rider keeps the pitch high, attacks the lead leg and fights hard topdowns. It’s hard to imagine Weidman being able to match his speed throughout round three.
It’s not what I would call a fight involved. But it’s a pair of venerable names in wrestling that go well together.
Obviously, this was a huge moment for Weidman, getting into the cage was a huge win in and of itself. But Wideman truly believes he has another position in him. I didn’t buy them all—was there anyone outside the Serra-Longo sphere?—but his comeback victory at least kept the dream alive. But this man is already a champion.
for tavares Bet higher than expected He’s been the middleweight champion since 2010 (!!!), but losing here means losing three straight matches. I don’t think the UFC will rule him out since he’s a known name that does A valuable duty at £185, but certainly not possible in today’s cost-cutting era. On the other hand, victory should buy the 35-year-old a job security.
