Chris Weidman Stats: Luke Rockhold Stats: Numbers that jump out in the matchup: Total Takedowns: Weidman: 21 (3.75 Avg./ fight) Rockhold: 1 (0.35 Avg./ fight) Submission Passes: Weidman: 22 Rockhold: 5 Takedown Defense: Weidman: 100% Rockhold: 72% Significant Body Strike Accuracy: Weidman: 46% Rockhold: 78.6% Total Zuffa Wins by sub. Weidman: 3 Rockhold: 9 I see this as a very tough matchup for Rockhold. Rockhold's biggest strength is overpowering his opponents by grappling. He has 9 wins in Zuffa by submission and has submitted Lyoto, Bisping and Boetsch in his last 3 wins. Weidman's biggest strength is his grappling, he has never been taken down. The standup is pretty even, both guys move forward. Luke may be a little more diverse with his kicking game but he will have to be very cautious for the takedown. Weidman has more ways to win and should be able to take luke down and control the fight. My early prediction is Weidman by Decision or late ground and pound. How do you see the fight playing out?
