Chris Curtis and Jack Hermansson face off on Saturday in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 208 in a middleweight showdown at the O2 Arena in London, England. Hermanson is ranked 8th in the league while Curtis is ranked 9th. 

Chris Curtis comes into this fight with a 29-8 record overall and since coming into the UFC he has won four fights in a row. Curtis last fight came against Rodolfo Vieira in June of 2022 and he won that fight by unanimous decision. The other three wins inside the UFC were by knockout. Curtis is averaging 7.23 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 6.28 significant strikes per minute. Curtis wants to keep the fight on the feet and he hasn’t had a takedown inside the UFC. He also stops 100 percent of his opponent's takedown attempts. 

On the other side of this fight is Jack Hermansson who sits with a 22-7 record overall but he has lost two of his last three fights. In Hermansson’s last fight against Sean Strickland, he was competitive, but he lost by split decision. Hermansson is averaging 4.97 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.83 significant strikes per minute. He is averaging 1.73 takedowns every 15 minutes and he is successful on 30 percent of his takedown attempts. He also stops 75 percent of his opponent's takedown attempts. He is also averaging 0.5 submission attempts every 15 minutes. 

On paper this fight is really close, but I think Hermansson is going to get the job done here. Hermanson at times doesn’t have finishing power, but he is still going to have strong defense here to get the job done. Curtis absorbs 6.28 significant strikes per minute, and he is going to take some damage from Hermansson here. He might not get the finish, but Hermansson will get the job done.
