UFC 223 Betting Odds and Predictions

Publié par

UFC 223 has turned into a whole mess. Following Conor McGregor’s bus episode on Thursday and Max Holloway being deemed unfit to compete, the card looks completely different than it did 48 hours ahead of the function.
So, I will provide you a quicker, shorter than usual preview and forecasts for the recently revised UFC 223 card.
First, the primary event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Al Iaquinta. Iaquinta is a well-rounded fighter with superior defense in every aspect of the game. On the other hand, the only real time we have seen him fight in the previous two years was a quick victory on a shop-worn Diego Sanchez. Nurmagomedov has the best grappling in MMA and though there are some holes in his striking game, it just doesn’t matter once »The Eagle » gets his hands on his opponent. Nurmagomedov will win but don’t doubt Iaquinta’s capacity to make this one tough for the Russian.
The co-main event, which thankfully has not been affected, sees Joanna Jedrzejczyk look to regain her strawweight title vs Rose Namajunas. Jedrzejczyk was clearly not herself at the first battle, which can probably be attributed to her inability to crack Namajunas mentally before stepping foot into the Octagon. Although Jedrzejczyk is more focused this time round, Namajunas is a much more full mixed martial artist and I visit »Thug Rose » squeaking out a tough win.
Calvin Kattar and Renato Moicano are comparable fighters from the fact that they prefer to overwhelm opponents from the striking game. Kattar prefers to be the aggressor while Moicano likes to stay at scope, working his jabs and leg kicks. I give the advantage to Moicano thanks for his movement and ability to stay calm against a competitive striker.
Zabit Magomedsharipov, one of the greatest prospects at the featherweight division, gets his chance to shine on the PPV when he takes on Kyle Bochniak. Magomedsharipov absolutely demolished his first two opponents from the UFC on his way to submission successes. Bochniak is a low-output striker who is more concerned about defense than offense. However, in all honesty, Bochniak is being fed to Magomedsharipov. This should not be a contest.
A couple of high-octane combatants confront at the PPV curtain-jerker, as UFC stalwart Joe Lauzon takes on Chris Gruetzemacher. Lauzon has natural pop from his hands but weak striking defense and is at his best in scrambles when he could utilize his glossy submissions. Gruetzemacher has not tried a takedown in his UFC tenure; instead, »Gritz » focuses on persistent forward pressure in the striking game. Lauzon’s inclination to get hit is a significant issue but I expect his working skills to shine through.
