Njokuani, a 30-fight veteran, has established himself by using striking to win his last three fights. Njokuani is a precise striker who doesn’t squander his opportunity to score. He barely takes 1.45 strikes in return while landing 4.93 significant strikes per minute with a 73% accuracy rate. Although he lacks a ground game, he blocks 76% of attempted takedowns and uses his 80-inch reach to keep opponents at bay. His average bout lasts 7:55, and he has finished off victories in half of them. However, Rodrigues lands six significant strikes per minute at 55% accuracy and scores 2.53 takedowns per 15 minutes at 53%. What he brags about in offence, he lacks in defence, absorbing 5.56 strikes per minute and has two stoppage losses.

Even though Rodrigues is simpler to hit, Njokuani might struggle with his diverse offence. In addition, Njokuani is the superior striker when comparing shot-for-shot strength, and his accuracy and reach may be fatal to Rodrigues. As soon as the battle begins, Rodrigues must be aware of Njokuani’s jab and counteract his reach. Njokuani might walk away with an easy K.O. if he doesn’t. Njokuani has demonstrated solid defence and amazing get-ups throughout his current four-fight winning streak. Due to his proactive approach to leaving undesirable places, his opponents find it difficult to deal him damage. He can deal his damage whenever he enters an area of freedom, which commonly leads to him knocking out his opponent cold. I’d back Njokuani to extend his win streak in this one.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Njokuani has won his last four fights by K.O

  • Njokuani has 14-career K.O. wins to his name
  • Both fighters have 2 K.O. wins each in the UFC
  • Njokuani has three career submission losses

Njokuani typically gets going quickly and waits near the cage for his prey to approach him. Njokuani unleashes strong kicks and reliable boxing effortlessly when his opponents are within striking distance. Njokuani will try and prevent Rodrigues from getting close to him enough for a takedown. He’d want to avoid taking the fight to the ground, where Rodrigues is an absolute beast. With his reach advantage, I’d back Njokuani to defend Rodrigues’ attempt at a successful takedown and prevent the bout from going the distance.
