Anthony Pettis vs. Diego Ferreira Live Stream UFC 246 on January 19, 2020
Extreme Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight scrappers Anthony Pettis and Carlos Diego Ferreira will toss down this Saturday (Jan. 18, 2020) at UFC 246 from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Since 2016, Pettis has substituted wins and misfortunes, doing as such in three separate weight classes. That is something of a noteworthy accomplishment all alone, and Pettis has absolutely been battling first rate rivalry, yet one needs to envision that “Showtime” is wanting to turn a corner and recapture reliable achievement. In the mean time, Ferreira has unobtrusively worked himself into a situation as divisional dim steed. The capable Brazilian has won five straight battles, finishing the success dashes of two other people who were competing for that dim pony position in Rustam Khabilov and Mairbek Taisumov.
We should investigate the keys to triumph for each man:
Key Wins: Benson Henderson (UFC 164, WEC 53), Stephen Thompson (UFC Fight Night 148), Gilbert Melendez (UFC 181), Donald Cerrone (UFC on FOX 6), Michael Chiesa (UFC 223), Charles Oliveira (UFC on FOX 21)
Key Losses: Rafael dos Anjos (UFC 185), Tony Ferguson (UFC 229), Nate Diaz (UFC 241), Max Holloway (UFC 206), Dustin Poirier (UFC Fight Night 120)
Keys to Victory: Pettis is one of the most conspicuous kickboxers in the game, yet his viability is verifiable. There is not kidding power in both Pettis’ kicks and punches, and his jiu-jitsu remains misjudged and very hazardous.
The issue keeps on being pressure for the previous hero. At the point when offered space to work, he’s as yet able to do entirely unimaginable things, as we saw with his flying Superman punch knockout of Stephen Thompson. Be that as it may, when Nate Diaz turned up the warmth and made it appalling, Pettis essentially didn’t perform.
Fortunately, Ferreira isn’t exactly as given to advance weight as Diaz, however he’ll likely attempt. Pettis is the slicker man and heavier kicker, and it’s significant he set the pace early. In the event that Pettis can truly rip off a couple of body kicks early, that might be only the weapon expected to drive Ferreira to back off and regard Pettis’ offense a piece.
Carlos Diego Ferreira
Key Wins: Rustam Khabilov (UFC Fight Night 145), Mairbek Taisumov (UFC 242), Jared Gordon (UFC Fight Night 126), Olivier Aubin-Mercier (UFC on FOX 18), Ramsey Nijem (UFC 177)
Key Losses: Dustin Poirier (UFC Fight Night 63), Beneil Dariush (UFC 179)
Keys to Victory: Ferreira is an undervalued ability, an astounding grappler who has truly built up the remainder of his game. Ferreira is by all accounts hitting more earnestly than any time in recent memory, wrestling all the more productively, is still out and out terrible when ready to increase top position.
Basically, there isn’t a warrior on the list who I wouldn’t encourage to pressure if confronting Pettis. He’s incidentally lost in different manners —, for example, when Edson Barboza beat up his legs all things considered — yet not compelling Pettis incredibly builds the chances that he’ll pull off some sort of insane knockout.
Ferreira needs to cleverly drive Pettis onto his back foot. His striking has progressed to the point that he doesn’t need to compel a fight however, which is acceptable — Pettis can even now split messy warriors with counters. Rather, Ferreira can progress behind his long snap kick, hope to remove the pen, and inevitably time takedowns underneath Pettis’ punches or while his back is to the fence.
It’s a great Lightweight battle.
Now, Pettis isn’t generally being taken a gander at as a contender in any division. In any case, it’s not in any manner incomprehensible for him to recover that position. His battling style is as yet astonishing to watch, and individuals essentially love Pettis! Getting passed an extremely intense and balanced Ferreira would be a beginning, yet to truly reignite his vocation as a contender, Pettis needs back to back successes.
Concerning Ferreira, this is actually a represent the deciding moment minute. The jiu-jitsu dark belt has done very well to skip once again from successive misfortunes in 2015, however he’s presently 34 years of age. In the event that Ferreira is to make an impossible run at the title, it must be on his present win streak, as losing to Pettis would demonstrate too major a mishap.
Fortunately, it is likewise an opportunity to score the most prominent triumph of his profession, and 6th consecutive successes is difficult to overlook, even at 155 pounds.
