The 32-year-old Brazilian has long been performing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Oliveira’s debut in the promotion took place in March 2015. In total, at the UFC tournaments, Alex spent sixteen fights, of which nine completed in his favor. The best achievement of his career – a win by a suffocating trick over Carlos Condit.
Last year, Oliveira had two fights, and in both, he was defeated on points – from Mike Perry and Nicholas Dalby. The Brazilian is a versatile fighter with good Muay Thai and grappling skills. Also in his arsenal, there is a powerful one-shot.
The 34-year-old fighter from the USA also lacks stars from the sky. Before getting into promotion in 2016, Griffin had a track record of twelve wins with two defeats. And at UFC tournaments, Max pretty badly spoiled his record – having gained only three victories in eight fights.
The best achievement is the win by unanimous decision over Mike Perry. Last year, the American lost on points Tiago Alves and Alex Morono and also won the decision of the majority of judges Zelim Imadaev. Griffin wears a black kickboxing belt and acts confidently in the stance.
Alex Oliveira vs Max Griffin Prediction
In the stance, the fighters will compete on equal terms with each other, and in the stalls, the advantage should be on the side of Oliveira. It is this factor that will allow him to gain a win by taking or on points – due to the control of the opponent in the stalls.
