Steve Erceg Analysis: Currently on a winning stretch of 10 bouts

Steve Erceg (11-1) prevailed in both of his bouts within the octagon and is now on a 10-fight winning run. When he faces UFC flyweight expert Matt Schnell this weekend at the UFC Apex, he will be trying to break into the top 10. He is currently placed among the top 15 of the rankings. Steve Erceg emerged as Australia’s most promising flyweight prospect. Erceg was supposed to be making his UFC debut versus Clayton Carpenter, another prospect, however Carpenter had to walk away from the fight, leaving Erceg to face David Dvorak on the ropes. Erceg won all 25 fights against the veteran, and he also took his ranking. He is currently 2-0 in the UFC and hopes to make it to 11 when he faces Matt Schnell this coming weekend at UFC Vegas 87.


Matt Schnell Analysis: Coming back from hiatus

Finally making his octagon comeback, Matt Schnell (16-7) lost his last fight by knockout to Matheus Nicolau, which sent him into a 15-month hiatus. This weekend at UFC Vegas 87, Schnell and Steve Erceg, who were originally slated to fight in November 2023, will finally take the octagon in 4 months after Schnell had to withdraw from the match. He has been out of action for some time due to injuries and postponed fights, but he is still listed among the top 10 flyweights and will try to maintain that position when he faces the rapidly rising Steve “AstroBoy” Erceg. Schnell made a big impression on the UFC stage as a promising flyweight contender who won 4 of his initial 6 bouts. He has only fought 6 times in the last 5 years after dropping 3 of his next 5 bouts. Now Schnell will face Steve Erceg, who is on the rise and difficult to strategy against.
