Garry vs Rodriguez Preview: Who Will Win?

Surely Garry has this in the bag, right?

How Garry Wins

The 25-year-old enters this fight vs Rodriguez on a four-fight UFC win streak with two knockouts. Both KOs were exceptional, too, with Garry wailing on his opponent through a spell of whizzing hooks and uppercuts. The kid has wicked quick hands – almost like a longer Conor McGregor – and knows how to entertain a crowd.

Rodriguez is a brutally hard-headed opponent but isn’t even close to Garry in the speed department. “The Future” is best to make this fight about movement – that will also neutralize the American’s power. If Garry bounces around and drains Rodriguez’s gas tank by making him play a game of chase, that’ll be perfect. When the time comes to pounce, Garry won’t miss his mark. 

How Rodriguez Wins

Garry’s not unbreakable – Kenan Song dropped the Irishman at UFC 285. Rodriguez needs to do everything he can to make Garry less mobile. “D-Rod” needs a stationary opponent, like Li Jingliang at UFC 279, to have success.

Watch for Rodriguez to unload with low kicks. He’s more of a methodical bruiser than a headhunter, and establishing the body will open things up for him. Garry might be surprised (even frustrated) with how tough D-Rod is and overswing. And if he gets flustered, Rodriguez will capitalize with some cinder blocks of his own. 

Garry vs Rodriguez Pick

Just like how I handled my Jack Della Maddalena pick at UFC 284, I’m a believer in young talent. Young stars aren’t worth fading, and that’s why I’m backing Garry to win. 

Rodriguez is made of bricks, though, so I’ll take the young phenom to win by decision, injecting some much-needed value into this play. 

Pick: Garry to win by decision (+125); OVER 2.5 Rounds (-170)
