Dustin Jacoby vs Khalil Rountree Prediction

Khalil "Warhorse" Rountree stands 6 foot 1, with a hefty 77-inch reach to add insult to injury. Across the other side of the pond is Dustin Jacoby, stationed at 6 foot 4 while simultaneously possessing a 78-inch wingspan, a whopping 1 inch over the dark horse of the light heavyweight division.

While predominantly a middleweight throughout his MMA/kickboxing career, Jacoby has since successfully moved up into the 205 division, gathering an assortment of names to add to his mantle as he has gone through a commendable six-fight winning streak to start off his second tenure with the promotion.

Utilizing a wide assortment of kicks and rangefinders, Dustin will look to pull counter and pivot religiously when on the feet. While not having the greatest wrestling as his base is kickboxing, Jacoby will do his best to stay on the outside and pick apart the adversary in front of him early and often.

For Rountree the name of the game is simple: implement his Bangkok-ready Muay Thai in order to eviscerate the victim that stands before him. Sure we could see a calculated, hellacious approach from the 32-year-old like we saw when he fought Eryk Anders, but moreover, I elect that his best course of victory will probably be if he just lets his hands go and bum rushes Jacoby, similar to his very last performance over Karl Roberson. 

While the explosivity edge is clearly with Khalil, in the end, I'm going to side with Dustin Jacoby to get it done this weekend. The fact of the matter is Rountree is blessed with all the finest genetics and killer instincts the world could possibly offer, but time in and time out he has shown that his performances are very much inconsistent, with the man dropping the ball so disgustingly to the likes of Marcin Prachnio and Johnny Walker ultimately raising a fair cause for concern.

Give me Dustin Jacoby to systematically dismantle Khalil Rountree as soon as the fight hits the second round, either getting him out of there late or winning lopsided on the scorecards when it's all said and done.
