Prediction for the bout Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar. Analytics
The very first thing that catches your eye is Max’s advantage in anthropometry. It is 13 cm taller. The arm span is 3 cm more, and the leg span is 12 cm more.Frankie will not just get to the opponent, due to the fact that Holloway skillfully uses the distance in their battles. According to the main characteristics, everything is clear, Max will have an advantage in the stand, while Frankie will have an advantage in the wrestling. It is necessary to consider how these advantages fighters can realize.
Recall the battle between Edgar and Ortega, where the Answer did not particularly strive to wrestle. Since Brian is not bad at grappling and the most important thing that pushed him away from rash takedowns is Ortega’s ability to close the guillotine in time.So, Max has the same skill as Brian, he performs the guillotine well.Plus, Holloway has 83% protection against takedowns, it practically does not allow passing rivals to the legs. Pretty vague prospects for Edgar to transfer the fight to the ground.
It will be easier for Max to take advantage of the rack. The first plus is the distance with which he shoots his rivals with feeling, with sense and accuracy. The second plus is a lot of serial combinations, of which Max has a substantial amount. In the last fight of Edgar with Swanson, as soon as Kab was able to conduct a series of three strokes, Frankie was a bit lost. Plus in the stand Edgar loves to press and does not like when he is pressed. And that is exactly what Max loves and knows how to do.
