Jamie Mullarkey and Khama Worthy face off on Saturday in a lightweight bout in a main card showdown at UFC 260 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Jamie Mullarkey comes into this fight with a 12-4 record overall but since coming into the UFC he has lost two fights in a row. Mullarkey’s last fight came against Fares Ziam in October of 2020 and even though he had five takedowns in that fight he still lost by unanimous decision. Mullarkey was outstruck 47-20 during that fight. Mullarkey is averaging 1.87 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 4.60 significant strikes per minute. Mullarkey is also averaging 4.00 successful takedowns every 15 minutes and there is no doubt that is going to be the goal in this game. Mullarkey is successful on 30 percent of his takedown attempts and he is stopping 66 percent of his opponents takedown attempts. Mullarkey is averaging 0.5 submission attempts every 15 minutes.
On the other side of this matchup is Khama Worthy who sits with a 16-7 record overall and since coming into the UFC he has won two of his last three fights. The only loss for Worthy came against Ottman Azaitar in the last fight and in that one he was outstruck 16-1 and just over a minute into the fight he was knocked out. Worthy is averaging 4.12 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.69 significant strikes per minute. Worthy wants to keep the fight on the feet and he is stopping 57 percent of his opponents takedown attempts. Worthy is also averaging 0.8 submission attempts every 15 minutes
Worthy got caught in the last fight, but I don’t think it happens again in this game. Worthy is going to use his power early, and that will be the difference as he comes away with the easy victory. Back Worthy at a very nice price.
