What was wrong with UFC 270?

I hugely underestimated the struggle of Jasmine Jasudavicius, Silvana Gomez Juarez gave up her fight going to the floor with Vanessa Demopoulos, and Victor Henry proved to be much tougher than expected, but we still achieved a little benefit. Progress is progress!

UFC Vegas 47 Odds for bottom board:

Miles Johns (-210) against John Castaneda (+175)
Hakeem Dawodu (-170) against Mike Trizano (+150)
Marc-André Barriault (-115) against Chidi Njokuani (-105)
Alexis Davis (-225) against Julija Stoliarenko (+185)
Jailton Almeida (-380) against Danilo Marques (+290)
Philip Rowe (-140) vs. Jason Witt (+120)
Denys Bondar (-240) against Malcolm Gordon (+195)

Thoughts: There’s a lot to work on here…give me Hakeem Dawodu, Chidi Njokuani, Alexis Davis and Denys Bondar.

He may be prone to split decisions and take losses, but the fact remains that Dawodu is 5-2 in the Octagon with wins over dangerous clients in Julio Arce and Zubaira Tukhugov. By contrast, Mike Trizano’s only win in the past three years was a highly questionable decision against a Ludovit Klein man who has proven to be allergic to the kind of pressure Trizano offers.

In the end, Dawodu’s more varied and destructive strike should win without too much trouble.

On the one hand, I can absolutely imagine Marc-André Barriault doing his usual thing and just going through everything Chidi Njokuani has to offer en route to mauling him against the fence. At the same time, the UFC newcomer is much quicker and more polished than Barriault, a man who has gobbled up nearly 200 major strikes from below-average forwards in his last two fights.

In short, it is worth a solid look.

Davis’ recent 1-4 fall isn’t as damning as it seems. She’s actually beaten her opponent in each of her four losses, and more than one outlet has her beating Pannie Kianzad and Jennifer Maia. His rock-solid fundamentals are a huge problem for Stoliarenko, who relies on pulling off quick submissions.

Expect “Ally-Gator” to rip Stoliarenko off the feet and from the top position.

As admirable as Malcolm Gordon’s recent decision over Francisco Figueiredo is, it’s clear at this point that the man can’t fight. Denys Bondar, on the other hand, can. To make matters worse for Gordon, Bondar has a terrific gas tank and enough grappling chops to avoid being submissive when on top.

In other words, invest in “Psycho”.

UFC Vegas 47 odds for the main card:

Sean Strickland (-210) vs. Jack Hermansson (+175)
Punahele Soriano (-190) against Nick Maximov (+160)
Shavkat Rakhmonov (-240) vs. Carlston Harris (+195)
Tresean Gore (-160) vs Bryan Battle (+140)
Julian Erosa (-300) vs. Steven Peterson (+235)

Thoughts: Even though I don’t like him on a personal level, there is money to be made with Strickland.

Hermansson isn’t a bad striker by any stretch of the imagination, but his best work comes from the top position. Unfortunately for him, Strickland hasn’t been downed since a certain Kamaru Usman dragged him to the mat in 2017. On top of that, Strickland is the more durable of the two and has a higher hitting output, so I trust him to hold his own better in a five-round striking battle than me Hermansson.

Best UFC Vegas 47 bets:

  • Parlay – Hakeem Dawodu and Denys Bondar: Bet $60 to win $75
  • Single bet – Chidi Njokuani: Bet $52.50 to win $50
  • Parlay – Alexis Davis and Sean Strickland: Bet $80 to win $90.40

At least there are a handful of decent leftovers to look forward to this weekend at UFC Vegas 47. See you Saturday, Maniacs.
