Chase Sherman (15-7) vs Parker Porter (11-6)

Heavyweight (265)

Chase Sherman

Three-inch reach advantage, clear technical gameplans based around his movement and straight shots, and a clear speed differential mean this fight is truly Sherman’s to lose. Porter won’t be able to match Sherman’s pace on the feet, and could well be drowned in a similar fashion to Chris Daukaus’s victory. Moreover, while Sherman doesn’t own the heaviest hands, Porter’s chin isn’t designed for 265lb fights. There isn’t a need to break Porter’s chin with one shot as an extended barrage will have him covering up and forcing the referee to intervene.

Parker Porter

What the hell is this match-up? A volume striker lacking any physical gifts, Porter is a more technically sharpened Heavyweight than the usual trife, but his ceiling peaks at unranked UFC heavyweight. There is the wrestling outlet that could grind down Sherman and avoid extended periods on the feet. Unfortunately for Porter, he lacks the speed to close the distance necessary to shoot on Sherman.

Predicted Result: Sherman TKO Round 2

A volume striker lacking any physical gifts, Porter is a more technically sharpened Heavyweight than the usual trife, but his ceiling peaks at unranked UFC heavyweight. A solid enough wrestler, it is very unlikely that Porter has the speed necessary to close the distance and takedown Sherman. With a 3″ reach advantage, vastly superior movement and a furious pace, Porter’s questionable chin will be drowned under vicious early barrages.
