Predictions & Preview: Wood vs Fili 7/22/2023

July 21, 2023


Fight Preview


UFC London will take place at England’s O2 Arena on Saturday July 22 and feature an exciting main card featuring two top featherweight competitors: Nathaniel Wood faces off against veteran Andre Fili for what should be an intriguing fight.


Both fighters are looking to advance in their respective divisions with an impressive victory, which would likely earn them a title shot down the road. Wood is 13-6-1 overall as a professional and 6-2 in UFC fights; most recently he beat Charles Jourdain via split decision at UFC Fight Night Paris last September. Fili is a 22-9 professional who holds a 10-8 mark in UFC. The Team Alpha Male competitor defeated Bill Algeo via split decision during UFC Fight Night 210 this past September.


Wood is currently listed as the favorite against Fili. Both fighters have proven themselves in previous bouts and possess very similar levels of skill. Wood can be difficult to predict in the ring – connecting 6.34 significant strikes per minute while only taking 4.42 hits himself; also showing impressive defense abilities by blocking 57% of significant hits coming his way from opponents.



Fili is an extremely technical grappler with superior submission skills. He has won 10 out of 16 bouts via submission, stopping 9 of his opponents. Although lacking Wood’s striking power, Fili makes up for it with his wrestling: he averages 2.38 takedowns every 15 minutes while defending against 57% of significant strikes that opponents try to land against him.


This fight should provide fans with an incredible spectacle at O2 Arena, in front of an enthusiastic sold-out crowd. This fight should make for an excellent showdown between two well-rounded fighters on UFC London’s main card.


Nathaniel Wood and Andre Fili are two tremendously talented fighters, both offering fans an exciting main event bout at this event. Wood is known to be a superior striker with longer reach, yet Fili is no slouch either.
