Bryan Barberena (15-7) vs Jason Witt (18-7)

Welterweight (170)

Bryan Barberena

One of the original blood Gods, a true Just Bleed fan, Bryan Barberena is back baby. Coasting on his incredible, Barberena’s disgustingly brutal style has already started to fall apart. Stopped late by Vincente Luque and Randy Brown, albeit after CTE-inducing amounts of punishment, Barberena is still recovering from a recent medical scare. It was only last November that Barberena needed four litres of blood drained from his stomach. As long as Barberena isn’t a changed fighter on his return, this is the perfect fight for himself. Despite a clear athletic ceiling, Barberena pushes an insane pace and volume which couple nicely with his heavy hands. The Blood God can drag Witt into an ugly war in which Barberena comes on top during extended onslaughts in the pocket.

Jason Witt

Usually, you want a wrestle-boxer to operate on crisp footwork. Unfortunately for Witt, his cumbersome footwork often leaves him fighting to an opponent’s tune. Witt has a clear advantage in the grappling department, but he will struggle to keep Barberena down. If, as is to be expected, Witt is forced to trade on the feet – he will be ground down by virtue of Barberena’s crazy durability.

Predicted Result: Barberena TKO Round 2

It has to be noted, Barberena may enter Saturday night a changed fight. It was just last November that Barberena needed four litres of blood drained from his stomach. As long as Barberena isn’t a changed fighter on his return, this is the perfect fight for himself. Despite a clear athletic ceiling, Barberena pushes an insane pace and volume which couple nicely with his heavy hands. Witt has a clear advantage in the grappling department, but he will struggle to keep Barberena down. The Blood God can drag Witt into an ugly war in which Barberena comes on top during extended onslaughts in the pocket.
