Vanderaa is close to being fired from the UFC, Jared is on a series of three defeats: a knockout to Alexander Romanov, points to Andrei Orlovsky and a first-round submission to Alexei Oleinik at UFC 273 in April.

Sherman is no better off, Vanilla Gorilla has four losses in his last four fights, putting him 1-7 in his last eight fights in the UFC. Sherman lost by decisions to Andrey Orlovsky and Parker Porter in 2021, and this year he was finished in the first round by submissions by Jake Collier and Alexander Romanov in January and April, respectively.

Prediction for the fight

A typical fight for survival in the promotion. The chances of the fighters to win are approximately equal, both prefer to cut while standing on their feet, and can send opponents to a knockout.

Only Sherman is a more pronounced puncher, and Vanderaa is a better wrestler. It is difficult to give someone a clear preference, we predict that Vanderaa’s versatility will be the key to his victory, and he will be able to record more points for himself due to actions on the surface. But in this fight, a knockout can happen at any moment, and former fist fighter Sherman will be especially dangerous in exchanges with his 14 knockout victories out of 15.
