UFC 153 – The Battle Plans for Main Card Fighters
There is a long list of Brazilian fighters at UFC 153. Well, that was expected as the event is being held in Rio de Janiero. The list of fighters contains a good mix of experience and rising prospects, so another successful UFC event can be expected.
Sadly, UFC 153 was devastated by injuries. Nonetheless, the event still packs a jaw-breaking punch with Anderson Silva stealing most of the spotlight.
The following are the battle plans for fighters featuring on the main card.
Rick Story vs. Demian Maia
Rick Story should open the history books for this one. Going against the submission specialist Demian Maia won’t be easy. Therefore, Rick Story needs to learn Demian Maia’s weaknesses from his past defeats.
Demian Maia has never been good with strikes and takedown shots, just Chris Weidman or Mark Munoz. Therefore, Rick Story needs bring the fight to Demian Maia.
We all know that Demian Maia is a submission specialist, so he needs to mix up things. Getting into the head of Rick Story will be the key to victory. Stay on top and use clinical strikes – that’s my advice to him.
Wagner Prado vs. Phil Davis
For starters Wagner Prado should wear goggles when he steps in the Octagon. Getting poked in the eye will be a very sad excuse in his rematch with Phil Davis. Other than that, “Mr. Wonderful” should keep his guard up and stay on his feat.
Phil Davis won’t let go the opportunity to dig Wagner Prado’s grave if he finds him on the ground – and we all ready know that the Brazilian is excellent at hammering things into oblivion.
The battle plans for Phil Davis are pretty straightforward. Get Wagner Prado on the ground – and SMASH!
