Ufc Apex Las Vegas, NV
Maurice Greene -220
Gian Villante is coming into the fight here with a 17-11 record overall. However, he is giving up quite a bt when it comes to the size and reach. Villante has a 6’3” and 205 pounds. What else is interesting is the fact that at a 76 inch reach he is unable to get the reach advantage.
Heading into the fight here Villante is known for being a striker who is using an orthodox fighting style. However, what is really interesting is the fact that in his last 5 bouts Villante has only managed to snag a pair of wins and both of those were split decisions. With his 3 losses they have been by 2 split decision losses, but also a KO/TKO loss as well.
Maurice Greene is coming into the fight here as the bigger fighter, but also with a marked advantage in his record as well. Greene is coming into the fight standing at 6’7” and 243 pounds, but he has an 80 inch reach. His overall record is sitting at 8-5.
While Greene is coming in using the orthodox stance he tends to rely on the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu when it comes to his fighting style. The last 5 bouts for Greene have seen him pick up 3 wins and 2 losses. The wins have been by a split decision, a submission, and a KO/TKO decision. The 2 losses, which were his past 2 fights ended up being by a KO/TKO and a submission loss.
This fight is one that is actually a little bit easier to call than what you would expect. Granted, the size difference is one of the major factors, but also thefact that Greene will have more tape to study to prepare for the fight and that coupled with the recent struggles of Villante definitely tip this fight in favor of Greene.
