Timmy “Twilight” Cuamba Analysis


Timmy “Twilight” Cuamba boasts an 8-2-0 professional record that showcases his well-balanced approach to fighting. This includes both methodical striking game tactics and sound defensive strategies. Cuamba averaged 15 minute fight times–the full duration for non-title UFC bouts–in his fights; landing 2.53 strikes per minute indicates his deep competitive ability. Furthermore, Cuamba used calculated yet deliberate striking strategies; his average of 2.53 per minute suggests calculated, potentially cautious attacking strategies.


Cuamba may seem disproportionally inaccurate with striking accuracy at 34%; however, his defensive acumen helps balance this by successfully dodging 57% of incoming strikes. Cuamba’s grappling game also stands out, including 0.50 takedowns per 15 minutes at 16% accuracy with 71% takedown defense; in his recent fight with Oki he encountered challenges that threatened his performance as well as handling aggressive opponents while managing energy effectively across all rounds.


Lucas Almeida Analysis


Lucas Almeida enters the Octagon with an extensive 14-3-0 record that boasts of his aggressive fighting style that sees him spend less than 9 minutes per fight, an indicator that shows his preference for quick, decisive confrontations, often quickly overwhelming opponents early. Almeida strikes vigorously and effectively – landing 5.05 strikes per minute with 47% accuracy rate while also taking 5.32 strikes per minute from opponents which speaks of engaging rather than dodging his rival’s attacks. This high output strategy results in frequent exchanges rather than dodging.


Almeida’s defense rate, at 45%, could present him with some vulnerabilities against an experienced striker like Cuamba. On the grappling front, Almeida does not display much presence with no takedown attempts attempted; his previous fight with Fili revealed some gaps in his defense which left him susceptible to counter strikes; for Almeida to defeat Cuamba successfully, strengthening defensive maneuvers to mitigate counter attacks while continuing aggressive striking will be crucial in order for success.
