What It Means: Tybura is a durable, burly fighter whose toughness and fight IQ is clear. He is a patient fighter and works hard in grappling exchanges, showing strong control against the fence and pressure from top position. He doesn’t just lay-and-pray, though. His ground-and-pound is vicious and exhausting for opponents to deal with when he gets the fight to the ground.
What to Look For in the Fight: Knowing Harris is often a quick starter, Tybura might try to take some steam out of Harris’ sails early in the fight with either a takedown or just some control time along the fence. The early part of the fight is classically the most dangerous time when it comes to fighting Harris. That said, Tybura can’t relax because of Harris’ real power and speed on the feet. Tybura’s entries can’t be sloppy ones, but if Tybura can stretch the fight into the second and third round, he could find chances to control Harris on the ground and rain down ground-and-pound.
