Brady Hiestand vs. Garrett Armfield Game Info

When: Saturday, June 15, 2024, at 4:00 PM ET
Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA


Brady Hiestand Analysis

Brady “Bam Bam” Hiestand boasts an 8-2-0 record and displays both youthful vigor and strategic acumen in his UFC bantamweight division fights. At 5’ 8″, Hiestand weighs 135 lbs with an orthodox stance and reach of 71 inches that gives him an edge when keeping opponents at bay. Hiestand draws heavily upon his wrestling background – as evidenced by an average takedown rate of 4.06 per 15 minutes with takedown accuracy rates at 46%; his grappling acumen allows him to dictate fight pace while usually staying in control on the ground.

Hiestand has an effective striking game, evidenced by 2.93 strikes landed per minute with 52% accuracy, yet his striking game remains a secondary weapon due to defensive flaws; 3.65 strike intake points out potential vulnerabilities during stand-up exchanges. His last bout against Danaa highlighted how well he combined wrestling base and sufficient striking to control and win strategic victories that demonstrated both his fight IQ and adaptability in octagon combat sports.


Garrett Armfield Analysis

Garrett Armfield enters this fight boasting an impeccable 10-3-0 record and an enviable reputation in bantamweight class as a dynamic striker. Even his smaller stature of 5′ 6″, with only 70 inches reach and 5.22 significant strikes per minute at 53% accuracy is no detriment in terms of his striking output; further, 58% strike defense proves this skill sets off enemy attacks against Armfield’s body.

Armfield stands out by maintaining fights in standing positions where his striking superiority can shine through. His takedown defense rate of 64% effectively blocks most grappling attempts from his opponents and keeps fights within Armfield’s comfort zone; as evidenced by his zero takedown average and submission attempts. Nonetheless, Armfield recently defeated Katona through strategic acumen where his striking prowess earned victory; Armfield is an effective opponent that uses high striking output coupled with solid defense to control both pace and outcome through superior stand-up skills alone.

The betting odds depict this as fairly tight with Armfield on -119 and Hiestand on -111.
