Jack Hermansson (22-6-0)

Fighting out of Oslo, Norway, “The Joker” will step back into the octagon Saturday looking to alternate wins and losses since a four-fight win streak ended in September 2019 to Jared Cannonier. In that loss, Hermansson was going against the now #3 ranked Cannonier, with his only loss since coming to the now #2 Marvin Vettori.

A sneaky sharp striker, Hermansson is a ground specialist and comes into this fight with edges over his opponent in takedown averages per 15 minutes (2.09 vs. 1.32) and submission averages at .61 (vs. .33). As the #6 contender in the division, a win here sets him on a crash course for a rematch vs. one of the aforementioned middleweight elites.

Sean Strickland (24-3-0)

Having won five straight fights entering Saturday, Strickland is getting a lot of love in the build-up to this one, and for good reason. Since 2015, he has just two losses inside the octagon with one coming to the eventual champ in April 2017.

Despite having just one submission since 2014, Strickland is actually a Brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has all the pedigrees, on paper, to compete there. Instead, he’s largely chosen to stand and strike, which has translated to 5.45 significant strikes landed per minute.

Likely a mix of sharp and public money with a swing this big, Strickland’s perfect record has attracted a lot of cash for better or worse.
