UFC 190 features the women’s bantamweight title fight between the greatest women’s fighter ever, Ronda Rousey, and the undefeated challenger Bethe Correia.

Rousey comes into the fight winning her last two fights by a combined thirty seconds. No one has really been able to show that Rousey is beatable and she will be looking to show once again that she is the greatest.

Bethe Correia is someone that people talk about as a probable fighter to finally knock off Rousey, but it is easier said than done. She comes into the fight with a professional record of 9-0, 3-0 in the UFC, is will be looking to improve to 10-0 against Rousey

UFC 190 may be all about Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia, but there is also a very good heavyweight fight between #15 Stefan Struve and Minotauro Nogueira.

Struve comes into the fight on a two fight losing streak, but before he lost those two fights, Struve won four in a row. Struve is still ranked in the division and with a win over a big name like Nogueira; Struve will cement himself as a top fifteen heavyweight.

Nogueira also comes into the fight on a two fight losing streak. Since winning the heavyweight title in 2008, Nogueira is 3-5, with his last win coming in 2012. Nogueira is looking to show that he still has it and still has some gas in the tank.

It will be a tough fight for Struve, but here are his keys to victory at UFC 190.

Keep His Distance:

Struve’s nickname is “Skyscraper” and for good reason. Struve stands at 7’ 0” tall and has a ridiculously long reach, tied for largest with Jon Jones. Struve needs to use his reach advantage against Nogueira to make sure he can dictate the fight and force the pressure on his opponent from the outside.

Throw More Punches:

If Struve can use his reach to his advantage, he should be able to use his jab effectively. If Struve wants to walk away victorious on Saturday night he needs to make sure that he throws more punches than Nogueira so that he can be one step closer to winning the fight. Being able to throw more punches should hopefully allow him to land more punches as well.

Do Not Get Submitted:

There is no secret as to what Nogueira is best at. He has world-class submissions and has won 62% of his fights by way of submission. Struve is also very good at submissions himself, but if he can make Nogueira try to beat him some other way than by submission, he will very well be on his way to another victory inside the octagon.
