Money Line Prediction
The fourth fight first fight at UFC on ESPN 27 will see Mickey Gall take on Jordan Williams. This will be a fight in the UFC Welterweight division. Gall comes into this fight with an MMA record of 6-3. He is 5-3 in the UFC, most recently losing to Mike Perry by unanimous decision back in June of 2020. Gall is averaging 2.55 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 46 percent. He is absorbing 3.65 strikes and has a striking defense of 42 percent. His grappling is decent, averaging 1.15 takedowns per every 15 minutes and 2.1 submission attempts during the same time period. His takedown accuracy is only 26 percent and his takedown defense is 40 percent.
Williams comes into this fight with an MMA record of 9-4. He is 1-2 in the UFC, most recently losing to Nassourdine Imavov. This was a loss by unanimous decision. Williams is averaging 6.07 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 51 percent. He is absorbing 5.77 strikes and has a striking defense of 35 percent. His grappling is decent, averaging 0.88 takedowns per every 15 minutes. Williams has a takedown accuracy of 50 percent and a takedown defense of 88 percent.
This fight looks to be a little lackluster between two guys who are trying to break out in the UFC. Gall has probably been the better fighter and has the ability to submit his opponents more so than Williams. Even though Williams has a high takedown defense, he was dominated on the mat by Imavov, so I will look to back Gall as a lean.
