He has only fought twice in the UFC and could not bring his name on the winning column.

Yorgan De Castro comes from Cape Verde with a record of 6 victories and 2 defeats. He arrived from Dana White’s Contender Series: Season 3, where he knocked out his opponent in round number 1. UFC welcomed ‘The Mad Titan’ at UFC 243 under the main event of Whittaker vs Adesanya, where he rose victorious in the very first round via knockout. He has suffered two back-to-back defeats and looks desperate to get a win on his record.

Yorgan De Castro and Jarjis Danho are nearly identical

Both Heavyweights are not in the best of form and are unsettled in the division. Castro and Jarjis Danho use an orthodox stance. Looking at the stats, both fighters look similar, with a reach of 1.88 m for Castro and 1.89 m for Danho.

But the difference comes in the amount of activity each fighter has had in the past few years- the fact that Jarjis Danho hasn’t fought since 2016 narrows his chances of winning.
