Where: KFC Yum! Center, Louisville, Kentucky, USA


Dominick Reyes Analysis

Dominick Reyes steps into the octagon with the record stabilization of 12 wins 4 losses and 0 draws. Known for his explosive power and strategic acumen, Reyes has an average fight time of just 8:25, this is due to his rush prowess which enables him to finish fights fast more often than not, sometimes even before the fight has truly begun. The man is a tall fighter with a reach of 74 inches and a fighting weight of 205 pounds; he is a switch hitter and this makes him more comfortable in terms of reach and angle against the orthodox styled Jacobs.

His stand out attributes are also tallied averaging four point seventy five significant strikes per minute and getting fifty percent of his shots on target. Reyes on average takes 3.77 shots per minute; however, he adequately evades 48% of those shots coming at him. Still on the ground, Reyes exhibits fairness though not superb performance, scoring 0.36 takedowns per 15 minutes and exemplary takedown defense of 80%. His last fight, the defeat against Spann, showed some weaknesses when being pressured, which he probably worked on during his training for this fight.


Dustin Jacoby Analysis

Dustin Jacoby, with a record of 19 wins, 8 losts and 1 draw, has more experience. His average fight time of 11:00 minutes shows his willingness for taking the fight to even more abstract level, and proving that his opponents are as exhausted and lacking in *strategic* stamina as he is. Jacoby is also a little inactive standing at 6’3” but he is as heavy as Reyes and only an inch shorter in reach at 76″.

According to statistics, Jacoby has a takedown accuracy of 0.36 per minute, and an average of (5.53) significant strikes per minute with 47% accuracy. He has the defensive capability outshining the previous with a strike avoidance too risqué at 57 percent. Though Reyes could potentially take advantage of his 60% in takedown defense, the fight will be mainly swinging. The last example of Jacoby was the defeat of Menifield where it can be seen that his defensive setup falls vulnerable against heavy strikers, which again can play a vital role in this fight.

Dominick Reyes vs. Dustin Jacoby Betting Picks

This fight presents a tight matchup with interesting dynamics due to the contrasting styles and strengths of both fighters. Reyes, with his powerful striking and superior takedown defense, seems well-suited to capitalize on Jacoby’s lower takedown defense rate. However, Jacoby’s experience and higher strike output per minute should not be underestimated, as he can outwork Reyes in a prolonged battle.

Considering the betting odds and statistics, Reyes might just have the edge due to his ability to finish fights early and his physical advantages. However, Jacoby’s resilience and higher defensive skills make him a tough opponent to finish. The key to this fight will likely be Reyes’ ability to manage Jacoby’s volume striking and use his southpaw stance to disrupt Jacoby’s rhythm.
