Who will win Blaydes vs Dos Santos?
Firstly, these two fighters have something in common – their last losses both came against the same man. Francis 'The Predator' Ngannou finished both by TKO (punches). Dos Santos' defeat was in June last year and he hasn't fought since.
Blaydes' loss to the Cameroon behemoth was in November 2018 and he rebounded with two victories in 2019 from as many attempts. The American also has a bigger tank than his older opponent and we suspect will have the edge in this heavyweight showdown.
