Great match making, could've been a title fight 3 years ago and winnable fight for both guys In their primes I would've favoured Assuncao by being more patient and a top notch counter striker and having stupid good defence. Cody is an insane counter striker but his lead game is a bit weak (for the highest level) Assuncao hasn't looked the greatest in his last 2 and has been shown speed is starting to become a factor in his last 2 losses, Moraes (amazing fighter) was able to blitz the shit out of him with a very quick overhand and Sandhagen used amazing set ups and offensive IQ but speed was a big factor in that fight. Cody doesn't have the offensive IQ of Sandhagen but when he has his feet properly planted (not lunging like he did against TJ, Munhoz and even Almedia) Cody has the fastest hands in BW history. If I had to throw money down on this fight it would go with Assuncao decision, huge fan of him and he has the tools to break Cody with good wrestling entries, counters and feints in a decent paced match. His defence seems to be slipping up though and that's a big key for Cody, Cody needs to draw out the over hands that will definitely be coming his way and unload with his insane barrage of 4-6 punches and catch Raphael's respect early but not over commit on the vet. what do you guys think?
