Two of the oldest and most experienced fighters in all of UFC face off when heavyweights Aleksei Oleinik and Fabricio Werdum will fight at UFC 249 on Saturday night in Jacksonville, Florida at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.
Oleinik is the #12 ranked fighter in his weight class, and his massive record of 58-13-1 does not include any tussling he may have done with his five children in their home of Parkland, Florida. The 42-year-old Russia native is 7-4 in his UFC career. He’s a submission specialist that won his last fight over Maurice green via armbar, but prefers chokes to usually find victory. He leads all of MMA with 12 career submissions via Ezekiel choke.
There won’t be many more bouts where Fabricio Werdum is the younger man in the octagon, but he is 40 days younger than his opponent in this fight. The former UFC heavyweight champion is also a four-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu champ, and was the first fighter to defeat the legendary Fedor Emelianenko in an MMA contest. The Brazilian is also a submission specialist, and despite his relative lack of experience compared to his opponent, will be the heavy favorite here.
