Result:
LOSS

39-year old Ed Herman has lost three of his last five UFC fights, and he is on a 5-6 run. This is his first bout in 2020. Age is a concern as he's lost four of seven, two via decisions on a second-round KO, plus a first-round TKO by Derek Brunson. All those losses were to younger opponents. One defeat came against 37-year old C.C. Dolloway while another was to 35-year old Gian Villante. Both those fighters have dropped five of their last seven bouts. He runs up against another younger man in Mike Rodriguez, on a 9-3-1 run, including 2-1-1 in the UFC. He comes off a huge victory last month over Marcin Prachnio. He needed a win to stay at this level, and he delivered in high-style with a first-round knockout. Both fighters play decent defense, but Rodriguez has excellent power averaging 4.59 significant strikes per minute in his UFC career with a 54% accuracy. Of his 11 career victories, nine were by KO/TKO. For this bout, Rodriguez has a two-inch height advantage, a five-inch reach edge, and is seven years younger. Take Mike Rodriguez to win the fight.
