Matt Semelsberger (8-2) vs Khaos Williams (11-2)

Welterweight (170)

Matt Semelsberger

Surprising almost everyone, Semelsberger has hit the ground running in the UFC. Sure, one of his victories was over the athletically illiterate, Carlton Minus, but Semelsberger proved his ability to maintain a solid pace for three rounds. Dictating pace is key against Khaos Williams, a terrifying knockout artist. Semelsberger can counter off opponent’s counters, which may force William’s into an even more gun-shy approach. There remain many holes in Semelsberger’s striking defence, however, and it will only take one from Williams to cause all kinds of… Khaos.

Khaos Williams

Khaos Williams has freak power. Moreover, Williams has proven that power against decent competition. Alex Morono and Abdul Razak Alhassan are no slouches. Unfortunately for Williams, his powerful counter punching falls to the wayside when opponents force him to engage first (i.e. Michel Pereira). While calf kicks are a decent weapon used to keep active on the outside, the script looks to be out on beating Williams by forcing him to lead the tango. Against Semelsberger, however? There will be ample opportunity to flatline his foe.

Predicted Result: Khaos TKO Round 1

Surprising almost everyone, Semelsberger has hit the ground running in the UFC. Able to maintain a solid pace for three rounds, Semelsberger can also counter opponents off their own counters. By dictating the pace and exchanges, Semelsberger is already halfway there to beating Khaos Williams. Despite the freakish power and accurate counter-punching, Williams is lost when forced to engage first (i.e. Michel Periera). Semelsberger has holes in his striking defence, however, and Williams has proven his quality against much stronger competition in the UFC.
