ANALYSIS

William Knight vs Marcin Prachnio Prediction: Will Knight Dominate at UFC Fight Night?

We have a clash of some of the most deplorable human beings in UFC history as William "All Natty No Breaks" Knight goes toe to toe in contrast to the Crimson Chin himself, Marcin Prachnio. I feel like right off the bat this light heavyweight bout poses some frighteningly nagging questions that must be answered before one is to put any sort of real-world currency onto it. For starters, will the apex predator in Knight truly be able to make the weight? In his past few outings, he has had quite the egregious displays of dramatic misses on the scale.

William Knight vs Marcin Prachnio Prediction

This has led to the teeny specimen having to fight at heavyweight to the insult of not just Knight's opponent but his subsequent doctored pay. Another question that formulates from the depths of hell is will Prachnio's paper mache durability make yet another appearance, like during his initial three-fight run where he was sent to the shadow realm a multitude of times. While Knight is allegedly being coached by the great Flex Wheeler and Prachnio's chin has held up miraculously for three consecutive bouts, truth be told these savage individuals are not to be trusted in the grander scheme of things or in terms of being consistent. 

What can be more or less appreciated and relied upon to some extent is what I believe to be the smoking gun in this matchup: in a battle of similar technique and indomitable wills, what separates good fighters from great winning competitors is their unabashed fight IQ. William Knight has time and time again shown piss poor decision-making ability inside of the Octagon, culminating in a horrific TKO loss to Devin Clark being the unfortunate result in his last time out in the cage. This of course was following a series of rudimentary defenses exhibited on the feet and a general failure to implement a consistent wrestling game plan in which he had the edge by most conceivable metrics. 

At the end of the day, your ability to implement your will without bias or failure is the key to winning at the highest level in mixed martial arts, something that I trust Prachnio over Knight to execute at least in that respect. Analytics, length attributes, and a functioning brain should on paper lead to the deciding prognosis being that the Polak should walk away Saturday, the victor.

I am ultimately going to side with Knight however similar to the case of prime Derrick Lewis, sometimes data will be damned and freak genetics will prevail as the deciding x factor. Give me William Knight to rock Prachnio's world fairly early on, culminating in a second-round finish after one too many failed attempts at range take its toll on the glass-jawed Marcin.
