By the end of 2021, many considered Raphael Assunção‘s career to be over. However, the Brazilian martial artist made it very clear that at the age of 40 he still has a lot to give.
I have three more fights left on my contract, so it’s very hard to put it into words and put it into perspective. But I just feel good.Raphael Assunção
However, his reality cannot be overlooked: he has lost his last four fights, three of them before the limit: two in 2019, one in 2020, and the remaining one in December 2021, against Ricky Simon. Therefore, he knows that now is the time to reverse this and leave a better image at the end of his career.

At 35 years old, American Victor Henry has a long history in the octagon, but he only arrived in the UFC universe last January, when he was part of the Ngannou vs Gane card. There, he defeated Raoni Barcelos by unanimous decision and made his debut in the bantamweight category, where he will now have a new test against another Brazilian, the experienced Raphael Assunção.
Nicknamed The Mongoose, Henry was not submitted or knocked out in any of his five defeats, which gives great credit to his stamina. In addition, 14 of the 22 victories were before the limit: 6 by KO and 8 by submission.
It is clear that something very surprising would have to happen for Raphael Assunção to win this Raphael Assuncao vs Victor Henry, as he is in the final stage of his career, and is going downhill. Henry, on the other hand, arrives at this bout in a great moment and will surely use his greater freshness to win before the cards come in.
Prediction: Victor Henry wins by KO.
