Lightning Locks is here to preview Charles Jourdain vs Lando Vannata. Will Lando Vannata be able to get to Charles Jourdain early or will we see this one get into the third round?

Charles Jourdain vs Lando Vannata Prediction: How Long will Jourdain Last?

With fights like Manuel Kape and Tanner Boser falling off the face of the earth, one of the few bouts worth a damn still taking place this coming Saturday undoubtedly has to be Charles "Air" Jourdain versus "Groovy" Lando Vannata. Besides having absolutely sick nicknames, the heart and vigor these two bring to the table is nothing to scoff at either. But will both of their Kung fu power levels cancel each other out? Lightning Locks is here to wade through the misinformation and deliver you, the people, an absolute Whale of a play that is guaranteed to smack twelve times over.

Lando Vannata

Sporting a record of 12-5, Mr. Groovy comes into this bout the slight underdog but the more grizzled vet.  If "nice and flowy Artem" was a fighting style, Lando would for sure be the frontrunner who would be utilizing it in the current day and age. Although having a breakthrough debut all those years back against Tony Ferguson garnered him instant heap and praise, his UFC tenure ever since has been a mixture of up and down affairs. What is interesting to note is that more recently he has incorporated takedowns into his arsenal, with the decision to round out his game proving to be rather fruitful as he has rallied off 3 victories in his last 5 outings.

Charles Jourdain 

The Canadian crippler from down north is emerging from his last dominant performance as the small favorite this week against the more experienced Octagon inhibitor. Mr. Air has had what can only be described as an action movie blockbuster career so far in the UFC, with multiple flights accumulated in victories and defeats in the perennial squared circle. Not much for a repertoire in jabs, Charles wholeheartedly makes up for that deficiency with thunderous leg kicks and disgusting power hooks that could put down an elephant. He will look to use his brutality to overpower Vannatas' more valid fluidity and prowess.

So who wins this Saturday, or for that matter, what bet is there to be had? Although I was favoring Jourdain to win comfortably early in the week because of his veracity, upon further inspection I have now realized that he is anything but a lock to win. Even though Vannata has a Pentiant for being punched in the face, he is now rectifying that glaring hole by mixing in reactive takedowns and more general offensive and defensive grappling. 

Although Jourdain might still win due to his more damage inducing nature, his weakness in the grappling exchanges he has had in the octagon along with sketchy judges leads me to believe the over is the best bet you should end up going with.
