Still never a good look to get dropped by a jab. I will try to keep this short because I don't want to spend much time on a shitty match up. Kennedy is green. I dont really rate both guys, but skills are in Darko's favor. He offsets that with being very low volume and plodding with his feet. He doesn't have much volume at all. He has bursts of attacks and that's it. He can def crack when he uses those bursts and carries power. Kennedy has reach and his striking is green, but he can use his pity patter punches and kicks here to keep Darko at bay. He has a big reach advantage as well. And with that Darko will have to cover more distance when he bursts. He could be missing at air a good bit here if Kennedy is just keeping his distance. Darko's slow plodding style will make it hard for him to walk down Kennedy as well. Then you got others saying Darko can land td's. But how often has Darko shot a take down in open field? He hasn't in the UFC. And only once in one of his past fights years ago I saw. Shooting in open space isn't really his thing. it could happen here but then you banking on him doing something he has rarely shown. Yes he got Clark down, but it was Clark who engaged in the clinch, with Darko reversing against the fence and then ducking low to pick up Clark and slam him. So if that was to be the case in the Kennedy fight, he would need to close distance and clinch up Kennedy (hard with his style) or have Kennedy engage in the clinch which I doubt he does. Darko could use one of his bursts and get Kennedy to back up to the fence and then try to duck down for a td. But just so many what if's. Darko is facing someone with the longest reach he has faced, it may take him a while to adjust. I think it mostly plays out on the feet with Kennedy staying on the outside with his pitty punches and kicking forearm of Darko but scoring points in a low volume affair. Darko landing a bomb wouldn't surprise me either. You also got a small sample size of Darko at 205. Only his quick win of Kimball which didn't show much and the Clark fight do you have to go on. One thing for sure is it's a shit fight I don't want my money on.
