|Fighter Name||Marlon Vera||Dominick Cruz|
|Notable Wins||Rob Font, Frankie Edgar, Davey Grand, Sean O’malley||Pedro Munhoz, TJ Dillashaw, Urijah Faber, Demetrious Johnson|
|Height||5′ 8″||5′ 8″|
|Significant Striking Accuracy||51%||33%|
Statistically, I would say Dominick Cruz has the advantage. especially his experience of fighting top fighters might give him a little edge over Vera.
But the problem is Marlon Vera has momentum with him, he has won all of his last three fights where he defeated top bantamweights like Davey Grant, Frankie Edgar & Rob Font.
Marlon Vera (19-7-1) is a more aggressive fighter here and has 51% striking accuracy but the problem for him is Dominick Cruz’s orthodox movement. will Vera land more significant shots on Cruz or Cruz hit him from different angles?
I think Cruz’s orthodox movement makes it hard for Vera to find a target so we predict Dominick Cruz to get decision victory as Vera is much tougher to get knocked down.
