When: Saturday, April 6, 2024 at 6:00 PM ET
Where: UFC Apex Las Vegas, Nevada, USA


Alexander “The Great Ape” Hernandez Analysis


“The Great Ape” Alexander Hernandez does not have a perfect result sheet, as he has 14 wins and 7 losses and no draws in the ring. What stands out in his striking game is the average of 4.63 strikes landed per minute and 41% accuracy. Nevertheless, he gets hit slightly more often than he hits with 4.90 strikes absorbed per minute, which may be a problem when he meets a fighter like Jackson, who is very strategic. Organically, Hernandez is not an overly aggressive fighter with only 1.2 takedowns per 15 minutes and a low submission average. The end of his last bout was a loss to Algeo, which increased the burden on Hernandez by virtue of an expected victory through his stand-up martial arts.


Damon “The Leech” Jackson Analysis


Damon “The Leech” Jackson is an opponent who promises to make the fight a bloody one. His record is 22 wins, 6 losses, and 1 draw (1 NC). Jackson’s shooting prowess may not be as aggressive as Hernandez’s with his 3.02 strikes landed per minute and 40% accuracy rate, but in terms of grappling skills, he outperforms others decisively. Having an average of 2.44 takedowns and 1.6 submissions every 5 minutes Jackson’s game plan suggests that the fights might be taken to the ground. While his last fight against Quarantillo could also give an indication that while he is as tough, he surely has weaknesses and 40% takedown defense which Mendes can exploit during their fight.
