Who will win the match Lima vs Paige?
We start the analysis as usual with anthropometry, which usually has Michael Paige has the advantage. He is over 5 cm, but the length of the levers he has the advantage of 21cm.
As we have said, Michael was a very unusual fighter, his style is unconventional. Much of course depends on his anthropometry. But the basis of this all is his talent.
In the last battle, Paige was faced with the most difficult opponent in his career, and it became clear that not that he is invulnerable. Weaknesses of Michael's struggle. After all, even Paul Daley, who is not a base fighter could translate it and control. As well as the lack of a Briton in physics. The floor is too "dry" fighter. It will be extremely difficult to compete in physics with such a fighter like Douglas Lima.
About Douglas say in last fight he was surprised. Lima has demonstrated a great "homemade", improved their physical fitness and protection from takedowns. Douglas is a very dangerous fighter, as in a rack and orchestra seats. Despite plenty of experience, he continues to progress.
We believe that Douglas is literally too tough for Michael page. The level of the British was visible in the last match and in a short time he will not be able to catch up. We bet on the victory of Douglas Lima.
