Pros and Cons

Aleksa Camur


  • Good left jab
  • Right hand has knockout power
  • Good ground-and-pound
  • Excellent finishing ability


  • Doesn’t check leg kicks

Fabio Cherant


  • Good ground-and-pound
  • Good guillotine
  • Good grappling


  • Takedown defense needs work
  • Does not offer much on the feet

Who has the Advantage?

Striking: Camur
Speed: Cherant
Knockout Power: Camur
Chin: Camur
Kickboxing: Neither
Footwork: Cherant
Wrestling: Neither
Grappling: Cherant
Submissions: Cherant
Cardio: Camur


Both men are young in their career and this is the biggest test for both of these guys. Cherant has fought awful competition, beating guys with a combined record of 3-14 with eight total fights (pro and amateur). Camur’s opponents combined record is 18-4 showing to be much better. Camur has a big advantage on the feet as his jab and power will play a factor. Cherant may have the better grappling but that usually shows when the opposition goes for takedowns. Cherant just isn’t ready and I think better suited for 185. I have Camur getting it done.

Next: Steven Nguyen vs. Aalon Cruz
