Mike Davis and Viacheslav Borschev face off on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 211 in a lightweight bout at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Mike “Beast Boy” Davis comes into this game with a 9-2 record overall and he has won two fights in a row. Davis last fight came against Mason Jones in January of 2021 and it was a unanimous decision victory. Davis was actually outstruck 117-108 but he had three takedowns and that was enough to secure the victory. Davis is averaging 6.24 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 6.76 significant strikes per minute. He is averaging 1.39 takedowns every 15 minutes and he is successful on 33 percent of his takedown attempts. He is also stopping 69 percent of his opponents takedown attempts. In this fight Davis needs to put the pressure on early with his strikes. 

On the other side of this matchup is Viacheslav Borshchev who sits with a 6-2 record overall and since coming into the UFC he has won two of the three fights. In March of 2022 he faced off against Marc Diakiese and he was taken down 11 times on the way to the unanimous decision loss. Borshchev is averaging 2.85 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 2.64 significant strikes per minute. He is averaging 0.0 successful takedowns every 15 minutes and he is stopping only 37 percent of his opponents takedown attempts. 

As long as Davis gets to the fight to the ground, he is going to find success. Borshchev isn’t good with the wrestling defense and once the fight gets to the ground, he’s going to really struggle there. Look for Davis to wear down Borschev on the ground, and that is going to be the difference as he gets the job done. Back Davis to win this fight by decision.
