Kleydson Rodrigues takes on Shannon Ross today for UFC 284 at 8:00 pm ET. Can Rodrigues dominate? Lightning Locks breaks it down

Shannon Ross vs Kleydson Rodrigues Prediction: Will Rodrigues Dominate This UFC 284 Fight?

And now for the fight that no one asked for but by the end of it everybody will be in awe of what transpires. Kleydson Rodrigues versus "The Turkish Delight" Shannon Ross. Why this is such a verbal wtf, at least on paper, is in large part because Shannon Ross is only getting this call-up because he's native to the arena, as he not only lost his Contender Series debut, but he got dropped several times during that showing in borderline sadomasochistic fashion.

Shannon Ross vs Kleydson Rodrigues Prediction

Pushing thirty at flyweight, this aging damaged-out veteran is simply too worse for wear ahead of his undeserved UFC debut, with the general prognosis being that he is getting brought in not just for some cheap local boy promotion, but to put over the half a decade younger, more promising upstart in the form of Kleydson Rodrigues.

While dropping his first appearance in the UFC's octagon, "KR" managed actually to win his Contender Series fight, and in stupendous fashion, shutting out Santo Curatolo from opening bell to closing. Suppose that particular Rodrigues shows guns blazing come Saturday. In that case, we are due for a highlight reel finish over a guy who pushes the action nonstop and is not defensively responsible in Shannon Ross. 

Yes, there might be some cause for concern in the form of jet lag and the hometown cooking of the judges being an inevitable variable. Barring some haphazardly hungover performance, Rodrigues should win in any fashion he pleases. Look for the newest commodity from Brazil Kleydson Rodrigues to implement his superior length and counter wrestling, negating Shannon Ross' pressure boxing entirely with a blast double leg after some feeling out, securing top position en route to an emphatic submission victory sometime inside of the second round.
