Dalcha Lungiambula (11-2) vs Marc-Andre Barriault (12-4)

Middleweight (185)

Dalcha Lungiambula

Heavy-handed, for sure, but as a stout Middleweight, Lungiambula relies on his grinding top control. His ceiling at 185 was evident against Markus Perez, falling into a back-and-forth affair against a shockingly limited fighter. Conditioning and pacing issues raise further red flags that leave a lot to be desired.

Marc-Andre Barriault

Eh. That’s the greatest compliment one could give Barriault. The Canadian made an absolute meal of beating Abu Azaitar – a one-round striker without any nuance. Barriault is well-rounded to a brutally boring tee, perhaps finding his most effective work in the clinch. By virtue of the better gas tank and a decent-ish chin, Barriault should collect another ugly win deep into the fight.

Predicted Result: Barriault Decision

Lungiambula is a Middleweight who carries heavy hands, but his stout frame leaves him relying heavily on his grinding top control. His ceiling at 185 was evidenced by a back-and-forth war with Markus Perez. Barriault is well-rounded to a boring tee, yet by virtue of owning the better gas tank, he is best prepared to collect an ugly win deep into the fight.
