Warlley Alves: Height Differences Prior to Short-Term UFC Joint Main Event “Maximum Change” – MMA Sports

TUF Brazil 3 Champion Warley Auves faces challenges other than fighting ahead of his joint main event match at UFC Fight Island 8.

Wally, who originally paired with Christian Aguilera in the January 16th match, saw the match fail in late December when the “Beast” had to withdraw. As a result, the Brazilians will face Munir El Haddes at an event four days later. This change interfered slightly with Alves’ game plan.

Wally said he was set to play a memorable lean striker at the UFC debut. combat The adaptive camp during training was the biggest surprise for his team. However, despite Lazzez being much taller than Aguilera and 6’1 “against 5’9”, Alves thinks there isn’t much difference in style.

“I think the biggest change is height. Aguilera is 5’9” and Razez is 6’1. I think that was the biggest difference. Both are strikers, so they are both excellent boxers. Mounir is a looser kickboxer, but Aguilera has a lot of power and throws a lot of volume. I think it was height that really attracted me to this change in opponents. “

Still confident despite the changes, Wally anticipates a thrilling stand-up battle with Razes. Given that both men have kickboxing as their original martial arts, Alves hopes he can play where he feels most comfortable.

“It’s going to be a kickboxing fight. I’m from kickboxing and so is he. I think I’ll prioritize an impressive fight. That’s what I drew.”

On his last outing, Wally Alves (13-4) was tapped out by Randy Brown in November 2019 with a triangle choke. Prior to that, the 30-year-old won a knockout victory over Sergio Moraes in May of the same year.

Warlley Alves is currently scheduled to face Munir El Haddes at the UFC Fight Island 8 joint main event on January 20th in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The card will be headlined in a welterweight match between veteran Michael Chiesa and Neil Magny.
