UFC Paris Prelims: Stephanie Egger vs Ailin Perez Fight Breakdown and Prediction
Stephanie Egger had a great start to her UFC career with two back-to-back finishes to her name. From her recent performances, it is needless to say that the 34-year-old featherweight fighter has good potential to rise through the ranks and contend for the title.
Speaking about this matchup, fans can expect a barn burner given their aggressive fighting styles. Ailin Perez who is making her debut has previously fought in different fighting organizations like NFC, CFU, and Samurai Fight House and has grabbed seven wins, out of which she has finished five of her opponents.
However, there is a lot of scrutiny on her record considering five of her eight opponents have a very poor record. Going into this fight, Fiona’s power will be something that Stephanie needs to take care of. Other than that, Egger is more well-rounded and has several tools in her arsenal to get the job done.
Stephanie’s superior grappling skills will give her an edge in this fight and consequently, one can expect her to go for an early takedown and finish the fight as a striking battle could prove fatal given her opponent’s superior power.
In the end, if Egger manages to fight smart and not engage in any meaningless striking exchanges, then the likelihood of her winning the fight with her skills and experience increases significantly.
