Darrick Minner (24-10), a 29-year-old fighter from the United States. Darrick was a member of Dana White’s “Dana Looking for Talent” show, just like his opponent. But unlike Dawson, Minner lost his final fight to Herbert Burns. After two wins in the row, Darrick still got his chance, and this weekend will hold his debut fight in UFC, against Grant Dawson.
For the 29-year-old American Minner, the upcoming fight will be his first UFC promotion performance. Earlier, Darrick fought only in tournaments of secondary combat organizations, performing recently with varying success. The fight against Dawson is being won by an experienced American as a substitute on short notice.
Like his future opponent, Minner is a basic jitter with a quality grappler base.Darrick is the Finisher, mostly he either loses or wins early. Not bad jiu – jitsu skills, but most of his defeats were choking techniques.
The 26-year-old American fighter has been performing on a professional level since 2014. Prior to signing the contract with UFC, Dawson’s track record included twelve wins in thirteen fights. The only defeat he suffered was Hugh Pully – by technical knockout in the 1st round. At the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Grant had two bouts: winning on points by Julian Erosa and suffocating Michael Trizano. Dawson is a basic jitter player with excellent grappling skills and effective achievement.
Dawson is the rising star of the UFC. The fighter was promoted through Dana White’s “Dana Looking for Talent” show, in the final battle of which he defeated Adrian Diaz as a submissive in the second round. Grant also defeated Michael Trizano as a submissive in the second round of his ultimate fight.
Dawson has a good wrestling base and endurance, the stand is mediocre, but the whole game is tied to take a takedown and finish off his opponent on the ground. Originally Grant was supposed to fight Skelly Hour, but their fight breaks down for the second time in 2020.
Darrick Minner vs Grant Dawson Prediction
Grant Dawson is a clear favorite and he is very likely to win this meeting, the only question is how. Dawson is constantly translating his opponents and looking for ways out, but if his opponent doesn’t allow him to do so, Grant confidently controls the game. Darrick Minner has suffered most of his defeats with the sub, so it is not difficult to assume that Dawson will most likely win either by strangling or by points. The only risks in this bet are that Dawson may actively engage the Grand End Pound and score Minner and that Derrick may knock out lacquers – pancha, otherwise I don’t see preconditions for the bet not to go in.
- Our prediction Grant Dawson will win.
