Enrique Marin enters this fight with a 9-3 record and has won 56 percent of his fights by submission. Marin has won five of his last six fights and is coming off a November loss to Erick Montano. Marin is averaging 1.8 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 28.7 percent. Marin is averaging one takedowns with an accuracy percentage of 33.3 percent. Marin looks for a bounce back performance after losing his UFC debut in a split decision. Marin is most effective in the clinch and knows how to finish fights if they get to the canvas, as his last four victories have come by submission. Marin must be more aggressive in this fight if he hopes to pull off the upset and snag his first career victory in the UFC.
This is a fight Northcutt should win rather easily, as he’s the more polished striker, is just as effective on the canvas and is more experienced overall with several fights under his belt despite just turning 20 years old. We just haven’t see enough from Marin to provide confidence he can get the job done here.
I have Super winning this fight.
