Julio Arce vs Andre Ewell: Analysis

Many people believe Julio Arce to be the slight favorite in his fight against Andre Ewell. It might seem weird as Arce is the shorter fighter and will suffer from a height and reach disadvantage to Ewell. The fighter also hasn’t competed in the Octagon for lost 2 years now and yet is still considered the favorite to win against Ewell.

This is because Arce is a tremendous kickboxer and has the grappling ability to deal with Ewell. And even though Ewell has shown great attacking prowess, his defense hasn’t been great at times. This could be problematic against someone like Arce whose only concern could be the lack of fighting in recent times.

Final Prediction: Julio Arce wins via unanimous decision.
