Tybura has more than one tool

The former M-1 Global champion hasn’t exactly hit the ground running in the UFC, but he’s won his last four fights, with his most recent victory coming against Greg Hardy last December.

Tybura has made a decent account of himself even in defeat. While he works behind his excellent kickboxing, he is a decent grappler, and can be quite strong on the ground.

Harris goes out on his shield

Harris is the epitome of kill or be killed. All of his wins have come by stoppage, and half of his losses are by stoppage too. The last time we saw Harris, he was kicked so hard by Alexander Volkov in a cringe-worthy KO that stood out as one of the best of 2020.

Harris is an explosive striker, something made that much more dangerous with his reckless style. His unpredictability may come off as amateurish, but his stopping power speaks for itself.

Tybura will weather an early storm to score a stoppage

Tybura may not be the flashiest fighter, but Harris’ disregard for defense makes him an open book. As long as Tybura doesn’t get caught, he can end the fight similarly as Volkov did.

That being said, Harris stopping Tybura cold isn’t outside the realm of possibility. For him to do that though, he’ll have to throw himself right at Tybura and overwhelm him with activity. If Harris can’t detonate one of his bombs, he’ll either get snuffed out, or eat potshots for the duration of the fight.

Tybura should be fresh enough and skilled enough to avoid Harris’ offense. Once he gets into a rhythm and starts timing Harris, he will line him up for a home run head kick that will put him out. Expect Tybura to put Harris down for the count in the third.

MMA pick: Tybura
