Renato Moicano and Jai Herbert face off on Saturday in a lightweight showdown in a main card matchup at UFC Vegas 30 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Renato Moicano comes into this fight with a 14-4-1 record overall but coming into this fight he has lost three of his last four fights. Moicano’s last fight came against Rafael Fiziev in December of 2020 and it was late in the first round that he was knocked out. Moicano is averaging 5.40 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.74 significant strikes per minute. Moicano at times likes to get the fight to the ground and is averaging 1.28 successful takedowns every 15 minutes and he is successful on 52 percent of his takedown attempts. Moicano is also stopping 78 percent of his opponents takedown attempts, and that has been a big key when he has found success. Moicano is averaging 0.6 submission attempts. 

On the other side of this matchup is Jai Herbert who comes into this game with a 10-2 record overall but he lost his only fight inside the UFC. Herbert’s last fight was against Francisco Trinaldo in July of 2020 and it was in the third round that he was knocked out. Herbert was competitive in that fight, but he was taken down twice in that fight, Herbert is averaging only 1.83 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 2.61 significant strikes per minute. Herbert was taken down twice in the last fight, but he actually stopped 67 percent of the takedown attempts, 

Hebert looked bad in his first start inside the UFC and it’s not going to get any better in this one. Moicano is a strong striker, and he is going to have no issue getting the job done in this fight. Look for Moicano to have some damage early, and Moicano will win this fight by finish.
