We were all skeptical at first, but they really put together UFC 279 Chimaev vs Diaz at the last minute.
Tough to spend time on a breakdown for Khamzat Chimaev vs Nate Diaz, not planning on putting any action on it. As for Jingliang Li vs. Tony Ferguson, the fan in me, wants Ferguson to win so badly, just not sure I can put my money where my mouth is.
Johnny Walker (+170) vs. Ion Cutelaba (-200)
Originally picked this fight with intentions of betting on Johnny Walker. Started to think about it and I realized how bad of an idea that sounded. We all loved Johnny Walker when he was coming up, the pure athletic advantage he had over everyone was incredible to watch.
Now that he has to fight guys with skill, things have not been panning out for good old Walker. Hard to rely on just athleticism and jump from gym to gym hoping for something to change overnight.
Ion Cutelaba is tough as nails, hard to put his guy away unless you submit him. I'm not sure Walker knows any submissions. Don't see this being a flashy fight by any means, Cutelaba is a very safe bet here
Bet: Ion Cutelaba (-200)
Darian Weeks (-125) vs. Yohan Lainesse (+105)
Darian Weeks is 0-2 in the UFC but was fed to the wolves right out the gate, but he showed a ton of promise against Ian Garry and Bryan Barberena. Now Weeks takes on Dana White Contender Series alumni, Yohan Lainesse.
Take a look at Tapology, the public seems to be siding with Lainesse, which is great for us. By the time weigh-ins come around this very well could be a pick em fight. Lainesse is a flashy knockout artist, but other than his power, he does not have much else to rely on.
Weeks went to the judges score card against Garry and Barberena, favorable experience to gain so early on. Other than the experience factor, overall skills are my two biggest reasons for picking Darian Weeks here. Weeks has more tools to win this fight, he is dangerous on the ground and standing, whereas Lainesse is just a knockout artist. Love the value of Weeks here, feels like a steal.
Bet: Darian Weeks (-125)
