The forecast for Luis Saldana – Jordan Griffin. The opponents will meet as part of a preliminary card at UFC Vegas 23 on April 10, 2021. The fighters will perform in the weight category up to 65.8 kg, and we will try to predict the course of the fight.
Luis Saldanha was invited to the UFC thanks to last year's success at the Contender Series, where he knocked out Vince Murdoch in the third round. Before that, the American fought in minor promotions, the most famous of which can be called the LFA. As a professional since 2011, the current record is 14-6. All the victories Saldanha got ahead of schedule: 6 KO/TKO and 8 sambishenom. But Louis loses more often by decision – this was the case in half of the failures, that is, three times.
Jordan Griffin is a 31-year-old fighter with an 18-8 record, who has been playing pro since 2011. However, in the UFC, the American's statistics are much more modest: 1-3. Griffin should be attributed to strong wrestlers. The American achieved half of his victories (9) with the help of sambishens. But in the stand, although Jordan holds a punch (only 1 defeat via KO/TKO), he regularly concedes to the referee's decision. Therefore, against Saldana, Griffin should try to pass in the legs and transfer the fight to the ground.
