Kelvin Gastelum – Jan Heinisch. Forecast and announcement for the fight


UFC 258 tournament bout

Almost all the attention of MMA fans at the UFC 258 tournament is focused on the welterweight championship fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns. But let’s take a look at the main clashes that will open for the two this coming Sunday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Once-top middleweight Gastelum at UFC 258 will try to break the black line by meeting in the cage with Heinish.

After big victories over yesterday’s UFC champ Michael Bisping and Ronaldo Souza, Gastelum has been on a losing streak. It all started with a loss on points in a stunning interim title fight against Israel Adesanya two years ago. Calvin then lost a split decision to Darren Till and in July 2020 at UFC Fight Night 172, Jack Hermansson quickly made him tap.

In June at UFC 250, Hainisch managed to close two consecutive losses to Derek Brunson and Omari Akhmedov by knocking out Gerald Meerschaert in a minute and 14 seconds.

Prediction for the fight

Gastelum is an excellent BJJ black belt wrestler. In the standing position, he is primarily dangerous with his sweeping powerful punches. Hainisch prefers to fight on his feet, having a good strike arsenal, but on the ground he sometimes has problems.

Gastelum can use his advantage on the ground or try to catch Hainisch with an accented punch and win by knockout. However, Hainish’s chin has not let him down so far, and due to his height and Muay Thai skills, he can interrupt an opponent from a distance. We believe that this will be a very competitive fight, where Hainisch will still be a little more convincing for the judges.
