Daniel Rodriguez vs Preston Parsons fight breakdown and analysis
Daniel Rodriguez is certainly the favorite going into the fight. Rodriguez has more experience inside the Octagon and has been able to dictate the pace of the fight in all his UFC outings. With notable wins over the likes of Mike Perry, Tim Means among others, Rodriguez is a threatening individual who is never uncomfortable in any situation.
Rodriguez likes to strike and will look to make a statement with a stoppage win over Preston Parsons. However, the young kid coming in the back of four straight wins has shown an incredible amount of resilience in his fights. He has a deadly ground game, but a lack of elite-level experience might prove to be the downfall in his fight against Rodriguez.
Preston Parsons has shown very little in his striking in his last few fights. While his submission game is top-notch and something that Rodriguez will definitely keep the focus on, it’s safe to say that Rodriguez has the upper hand in overall skills on the mat. Be that as it may, Preston Parsons is just 26 years old, and has an entire career ahead of him. We are going with Daniel Rodriguez via stoppage in the third round.
