Potential Winning Pick
Both of these guys have been making progress in the featherweight division. Both have solid resumes and fighting stats. Are the odds justified?
Kelleher is an aggressor in his strikes and has a faster pace than Stamann. He will try to end the fight quickly. He is vulnerable to significant strikes absorbed which could play a factor in this fight.
Stamann has very solid numbers and good accuracy on strikes and grappling. He also likes to stay on his feet, but is not afraid to work on the ground. I look for him to be able to keep his pace and make Kelleher work a little harder.
