The Argentine fighter, Laureano Staropoli, returns to the octagon of UFC for a new and difficult challenge this Saturday against Tim Means. In what will be the stellar fight of the UFC Vegas 6 preliminaries, he wants to return in the best way to the most important octagon in the world. ‘Pepi’ aims to return to victory and leave behind the defeat in his last fight against Muslim Salikhov, on October 26, 2019, at UFC Singapore. Therefore, you want to close early.
In the Argentine’s own words, that night he did not feel like himself and this Saturday he has a perfect opportunity to remove his thorn and look much more like the one who dominated Thiago Alves and Héctor Aldana. In his first two presentations at UFC, he was able to get the best of himself. But, he will not have it easy at all against an experienced rival like Means, who has more than 40 fights in his professional career, with a record of 29-12-1 (1).
Look for your best image
Staropoli He announced that his combat plan will be to seek the initiative from the beginning and that the style of his rival “fits him perfectly.” Means, for his part, is a fighter who is no stranger to the definitions before the limit, with 19 knockouts and 5 submissions in favor and 2 knockouts and 5 submissions against. The American is coming off a loss to Daniel Rodríguez in February 2020, where he was subjected to a guillotine in the first round. Now, you want to reverse your last image in the cage.
