Marcelo Alfaya might not be the most recognized name in MMA, but Jon Fitch sure does know him. He takes on the debuting Alfaya at World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 6 and has a good idea where he wants the fight to go.
“I feel like he lacks the wrestling skills to really implement his BJJ,” said Fitch to Chris Leslie at MMAFrenzy. “So with that said I think his heavy hands stand out as the biggest weapon since he doesn’t have the wrestling skills to get it to the ground when he wants.”
Fitch has only a single win over the past three years and made his WSOF debut in June. He went to sleep via a choke thanks to Josh Burkman.
Alfaya is 15-6 and rides three wins. He stopped his previous two CFA appearances in the opening round.
WSOF 6 is October 26 and comes from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL. They will serve as the co-main event, which airs live on the NBC Sports Network.
