Jimmy Crute and Modestas Bukauskas meet in a light heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Island 6 on October 17th. Two true prospects in the light heavyweight division will look to add a win to their belt as they climb the ranks.
In Crute you have a ‘Contender Series’ standout who will look to make a name for himself on the main card. At 11-1, his star is still on the rise and as a true grappler will look to take this to the ground. Winning by submission his last time out that seems his best bet for a win, as he’s averaged 4.63 takedowns per 15 minutes in his fights.
A fairly new fighter, Bukauskas is looking to use his unorthodox striking to score another win. At 10-0 overall and 1-0 in the UFC having won earlier this year, he is looking to build on the momentum. Pressure seems to be an issue for him and with a grappler in Crute things don’t seem promising from the outside. He will look to keep things close in the stand-up and win that way. There’s a reason he is the underdog.
