UFC 153 – The Battle Plans for Main Card Fighters
This will be a tough battle. Erick Silva better have his dancing shoes on, because staying on his feet will be the key to victory. The Brazilian is excellent at ju-jitsu, which means Erick Silva should surprise his American opponent with a huge swipe.
Jon Fitch is no pushover. The American is extremely athletic and has a lot of stamina. Jon Fitch also has a history of taking down opponents who love to play on the ground, which is bad news for Erick Silva.
So, I guess the battle plan is to catch Erick Silva off guard and deal a couple of clinical blows.
Fabio Maldonado vs. Glover Teixeira
Fabio Maldonado is under the gun by the UFC President Dana White for his third straight loss. So, expect Fabio Maldonado to fight till his last breath against Glover Teixeira.
Glover Teixeira is an all-rounder, who is technically a sounder fighter than Fabio Maldonado. Therefore, Fabio Maldonado should aim for a slow fight – suck the life force out of Glover Teixeira.
Glover Teixeira needs to avoid a slugfest. He also needs to avoid the powerful fists of Fabio Maldonado. Glover Teixeira is better a favorite to win this fight, but he should end this fight before Fabio Maldonado gets into rhythm.
