View the Stakes below for UFC FN148:
Justin Willis Breakdown:
Willis is quietly moving up the position and keeps his own underrated tag. Although he looks to hold a lot of extra weight he is one of the more athletic heavyweights. On the feet he has quick hands and will certainly have an adequate advantage over Curtis Blaydes, whose stand-up continues to look rigid and predictable. Willis hasn’t yet been tested in the takedown division but trains using exceptional wrestlers such as DC and Cain. With a full camp preparing for Blaydes, we expect him to be competitive in this region to keep the fight standing for significant moment. Blaydes struggled to takedown southpaw fighters in the past and the size of Willis should be of further aid. Together with the chances presented, the value is located with the underdog in a stylistic battle that could present many opportunities.John Makdessi Breakdown:
Makdessi has rather solid stand-up and impenetrable takedown defense. He looks to be a few levels above his opponent Jesus Pinedo, who’s relatively inexperienced and awkward on the toes. He favours flashy kicks but his lack of footwork leaves him open to be countered and crowded. Makdessi includes a higher volume and will be able to consistently land on Pinedo. Since moving into a top rated new camp he seems rejuvenated and seemed very impressive in recent outings. The experience advantage for Makdessi is enormous and the only clear way to eliminate this one is by getting clipped with a wild kick. The choice is Makdessi, likely via TKO.
Bet = Makdessi in 1.38 (-260) odds. Risk 4 Units to acquire 1.52 Units.
Frankie Saenz Breakdown:
Saenz is getting older but nonetheless possesses a style to provide his competitor trouble. He depends upon his wrestling and anxiety to secure rounds while his standup is serviceable. Vera is a wild fighter who is frequently losing fights till he finds out a comeback win. He’s obviously dangerous but if he cant find the end the fight will quickly slip away. Vera will have the youth and speed advantage but Saenz are the one procuring rounds with quantity and takedowns from a fighter who fights off his back. The experience advantage for Saenz will be a big factor against this kind of fighter. Saenz will need to avoid submissions but a route to success for the underdog is clear.
Bet = Saenz in 2.45 (+145) chances. Risk 3 Units to acquire 4.35 Units.
Chris Gutierrez Breakdown:
Gutierrez seems to have his opponent outmatched in just about any aspect for this matchup. He has the exceptional striking skills, more proven grappling and takedown defense. Additionally the level of resistance he’s experienced far exceeds Macdonald who has largely faced fighters with losing records. Macdonald may be undefeated but he has struggled against such fighters and had a few really close fights visit conclusion. His one positive appears to be toughness as he recovers well from being lost. We enjoy the favorite to get this one finished.
Bet = Gutierrez at 1.4 (-250) odds. Risk 4 Units to win 1.6 Units.
