UFC 122: What Andre Winner Must Do To Beat Dennis Siver
In four fights with UFC, Andre Winner has had three of them go to decision. In his other fight, he got a knockout victory over Rolando Delgado. In his professional career, he has 11 victories to four losses. Of the 11 wins, six came via decision. In total, nine of his fights have come to the judges decision. This tells me two things: One, he likely does not have a strong standing game or ground game; two, he has a lot of stamina to be able to compete in that many fights that have gone the distance.
His opponent, Dennis Siver, has a better attack game than does Winner. He has more power, and his ground game is also better. So, Winner's best chance to take this fight is going to be to try and come out and land some punches to rattle Siver's cage. If he can do that, then he will have a shot in this fight.
To be frank, Andre Winner doesn't impress at all. He can't do a lot of things and he gets by based purely on stamina alone. That could work for him in this fight because Siver is not a great striker and Winner can run around for three rounds trying to land some jabs and get the decision victory. I don't see Winner getting a knockout so it will have to come on the ground, if it doesn't get to the judges.
