Rafael “Macapa” Estevam Analysis
Rafael Estevam has emerged as an outstanding flyweight contender with an undefeated record of 11-0-0 since making his UFC debut. Estevam stands 5 feet 8 inches at 125 lbs with 69 inch reach primarily fighting from an orthodox stance stance. Estevam’s striking game is undeniably his specialty, as evidenced by his remarkable statistics. He scores an amazing 6.47 significant strikes per minute with an 80% striking accuracy rate and impressive striking defense skills (absorbing only 0.40 significant strikes per minute while maintaining a 50% striking defense rating), both indicators of effective opponent destruction. These numbers demonstrate his masterful control of stand-up combat.
Estevam continues his dominance in grappling. He averages 4.04 takedowns every 15 minutes at 50% accuracy with no one able to defend against them; his takedown defense rate remains at zero! Estevam’s wrestling skills can therefore influence fight outcomes significantly by taking opponents down at will and maintaining control. Noteworthy though is Estevam’s relatively untested submission game as his submission attempts per 15 minutes remain at 0. Rafael Estevam recently demonstrated his prowess by defeating Elias and adding another victory to his unblemished record, solidifying himself as one of the premier prospects in the flyweight division.
