During UFC Fight Night 194, an exciting middleweight game will take place. Between Phil Hawes and Deron Winn.
Phil Hawes is undefeated in the UFC. He first tried his shot in 2017, but suffered a 3rd round knockout loss in the Dana White Contender Series. After that, Phil fought at Bellator and won a TKO victory in the first round; he also fought at Brave and won another first round, but this time with submission. Before trying his second shot at Dana White Contender Series, he got another first round victory at Brave Fc, and finally, he got another shot.
At the Dana White Contender Series, he faced Khadzimurat Bestaev and beat him in the first round via TKO. His UFC debut was impressive. He took the KO victory in under 18 seconds against Jacob Malkin. After that, he won back-to-back wins, both by unanimous decision. In 2021, he has fought twice already and will try to secure another victory. He’s very strong physically, has a good shot and excellent ground defense. Last time around, he fought one of the most skilled BJJ fighters, Kyle Daukaus, and beat him by unanimous decision.
Bet on Phil Hawes against Deron Winn with 1xBet
Deron Winn is an unusual middleweight. It measures only 167 cm. However, he did have two UFC victories. He beat Eric Spicely (12-8-0), who is no longer a UFC fighter, and Antonio Arroyo (0-3-0 in UFC), who is no longer a UFC fighter either. He is fast and powerful because he is small and he weighs like an average weight. But all the same, it’s not about skill anymore, it’s a lot easier to fight against such a small guy while hitting, but it’s also too hard to finish such a strong guy.
From my perspective, Phil will take the win, but it will be by unanimous decision. If this fight continues on the pitch it will be Winn’s incentive, but in the strike I don’t think it’s possible to finish Deron Winn. I think Phil will start fighting as an L2 fighter and use as much jab as possible; he will gain away points and a unanimous decision victory. The only opportunity Winn has is to defeat Phil and control him on the ground, but if Kyle Daukaus couldn’t handle that I don’t think Winn will be able to.
