Matt Mitrione vs Shawn Jordan UFC Heavyweight Preview
This weekend the UFC returns to China for the UFC Fight Night where heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Shawn Jordan will face each other.
Mitrione is known as a heavy-handed striker who hasn’t stopped improving since he first came to the UFC in The Ultimate Fighter season 10. Jordan has been studying with strategist Greg Jackson and is known for his extreme strength and bull-like attitude when fighting.
Most expect it to be a very close match, but Jordan is generally thought to have the upper hand. Odds of 8/11 are available on a Jordan victory; however, Mitrione isn’t far behind with odds of 11/10.
However, Mitrione has often been considered a great prospect in the heavyweight division. The former NFL pro has some of the fastest hands and feet in the division and there is no reason he couldn’t become a top ten-level contender.
Furthermore, Mitrione is as equally powerful as Jordan and he could win with one good knockout punch. However, in order to do that he will have to remain fast on his feet and keep Jordan guessing. Nonetheless, it’s not unfeasible, and there’s a good chance the bookies have got this one wrong.
