Andre Petroski vs. Wellington Turman UFC 281 MSG New York Fight Video Replay Livestream Full HD Part 1
Andre Petroski( 8-- 1) started his UFC career well. From The Ultimate Fighter he TKO would Micheal Gilmore( 2021) and submitted Yaozong Hu( 2021). He still had everything to prove as they were the easiest match- ups in the division. He then met Nick Maximov back in May, which was a significant step up in the competition but credit to him. He rose to the occasion and submitted the grappler.
He now takes on another talented grappler in Wellington Turman( 18-- 5). Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt was one step away from being cut in the UFC. He was starved by Andrew Sanchez( 2020) who is not known for his striking and then Bruno Silva( 2021). He was then paired with Sam Alvey( 2021) who has forgotten how to win and earned a much needed split decision to stop the skid. Then paired with submission wizard Misha Cirkunov, he dropped a division and Turman welcomed him with an armbar to seal an impressive win.
They are both superb all- round grapplers, but the main question here is whether Petroski 's wrestling will outperform Turmans Jiu Jitsu. Petroski has the wrestling to control Turman and out muscle him on the deck, but as we saw in the Cirkunov fight, you can not make any mistake and leave a neck or limb out there.
It will be interesting to see if Petroski backs his own Jiu Jitsu to fend off the attacks and look for a finish himself. Or we see most of this fight contested on the feet.
In the first round Petroski will look super dangerous and if this goes into the second round, his gas tank will be tested.
We can envision a submission or decision as Petroski gasses. However, we can also see Petroski blow the Brazilian out of the water in the first round.
