This fight is kind of up in the air, which makes it an intriguing and compelling main event. Normally, I would pick Ronaldo Souza over most middleweights, but with Souza’s last performance against champ Robert Whittaker, and Derek Brunson’s current win streak, I really wonder how this will all play out.
Before the fight against Whittaker, Souza was seen as a killer that deserved a shot at the belt. Today, that perception is perhaps a little different. Souza has lost relevancy at middleweight and this fight is a crucial for him to prove that he’s till a top contender. Souza is 38 years old now, so I don’t expect a much improved or different fighter to step in the cage against Brunson. In my opinion, Souza will be the same elite fighter that we’re accustomed of seeing or lesser version of his old self.
The outcome of this bout depends on what version of Souza will show up that night. For the most part, Brunson is a very consistent fighter that always shows a decent amount of improvement in each fight. Meaning, Souza is the wild card here.
This is a tough fight to call, but I think we’re going to see Brunson emerge as a serious contender here. Being close to 40, I’m not sure we’ll get the 2012 Souza that knocked out Brunson in a Strikeforce event. Souza is very dangerous, but I think Brunson will be the quicker guy here and beat the Brazilian to the punch. Brunson has the wrestling to deal with Souza’s takedowns, and I believe he’s now experienced and composed enough to strike with Souza.
