Steven Peterson vs Lucas Alexander Analysis

Steven Peterson, 19-10, returns to action on Saturday as he attempts to secure a victory after suffering a heartbreaking split decision loss against Julian Erosa. The fighter best known as “Ocho” is notable for his second-round knockout win over Martin Bravo in September 2019 when he unleashed a spinning backfist directly onto his rival’s face. With 13 finishes in 29 fights – eight by submission and five by knockout – only once has Peterson been stopped; most of his losses came via decision. His striking has also improved significantly throughout this tenure with 5.17 significant strikes per minute in the UFC cage.

Lucas Alexander 7-3 hopes to prove Brito’s quick submission defeat was just a fluke and fight longer against Peterson with the aim of earning victory after the fight. In 10 fights, Alexander has produced three stoppages by knockout, showing off power in his hands that has yet to be tested in the big leagues; his last knockout came after only 122 seconds. However, The Lion must avoid getting caught in another submission attempt since all his victories have come by that method. Against Peterson though, Alexander hopes to stay longer and demonstrate all his MMA skills more fully.
