He's a strong puncher (3.00 significant strikes per minute) and has fine defense (69% takedown 'D,' 63% striking defense). Though most of his fights have ended via decision, he possesses excellent power, and he's comfortable taking this to the ground, averaging 1.75 takedowns every 15 minutes. Take Brandon Moreno to win the match.
