Jones vs Santos

Main Event

This takes place in Las Vegas on July 6, 2019

Thiago Santos is a dangerous type fighter and a powerful kicker and Jones has never fought anyone like him. The only place this could be an issue is if he goes in for the clinch. Santos likes space and Jones will attempt to take that away.

Santos has a tendency to go with the wild and powerful shots and Jones will fare better if he can kickbox with his opponent. Jones is a smart fighter and will likely find the correct avenue to handle Santos.

Pick: Jones has many advantages being a better wrestler, bigger body, stronger and more durable and is a good grappler while Santos is better if the event gets wild and crazy and borders on out of control. The first round is where Jones must be wary of the wild and out of control opponent. HE will figure it out as we take Jones to win (if I was guessing it would be TKO in round 3).
