UFC 260 is already down to 11 fights, we haven’t even had weigh ins yet. Thankfully as of now we still have Stipe Miocic vs. Francis N’Gannou II. I remember seeing the first fight live in Boston, now we get the long awaited rematch. I am torn on this fight, Vegas has Stipe Miocic as the underdog so part of me want to hammer the champion underdog. But it only takes one punch from N’Gannou and the fight is over. I might stay away from betting the Main event, here are two picks, one whale play and one underdog pick for UFC 260.
Vicente Luque (-260) vs. Tyron Woodley (+210)
Tyron Woodley has lost 14 rounds in a row, that definitely is a hit to your ego after being one of the most dominating welterweight fighter for years. The 38 year old Tyron Woodley has been a shell of himself in this past three fights. While Luque is 29 entering the prime of his career. Woodley has been coming out slow in each of these past three fights. Luque could capitalize on the slow start from Woodley and look to finish him within the first round. I feel bad for Woodley I really do but I think his time is done. The 38 year old is just not the same fighter he once was, we may see him in Bellator soon.
Vicente Luque (-260)
William Knight (-110) vs. Alonzo Menifield (-110)
Pick em fight and it could be a banger. Both Knight and Menifield have good striking and unreal power. Alonzo Menifield just does not have the cardio to last more than 2 rounds. William Knight has an unbelivable coach in Tyson Chartier. Trust Chartier drew a game plan up to get Knight out of the first round and get a later round finish. Menifield may have the better fight resume but Knight is dangerous. Trust in the 2020 coach of the year Tyson Chartier.
William Knight (-110)
Khama Worthy (-130) vs. Jamie Mullarkey (+110)
I do not understand these odds, this is such a mismatch for Mullarkey. We already know Worthy has the knock out power. Also proved himself on the ground against Luis Pena, where Pena is most comfortable. Jamie Mullarkey has gone 0-2 since entering the UFC a year ago. Mullarkey is only 26 years old, a loss may get him cut from the UFC. Might be best if he goes to another league to get some more experience. Khama Worthy is a much more well rounded fighter, I’m predicting a late round finish.
Khama Worthy (-130)
Thomas Almeida (+250) vs. Sean O’Malley (-310)
Thomas Almeida vs. Sean O’Malley is an interesting match up. I will admit Thomas Almeida has not been the same since Cody Garbrandt took his soul. Fight is close on paper but I believe a few different factors will come into play. Sean O’Malley clearly struggled with the weight cut against Vera. It has also become very clear O’Malley has a bad right ankle, it has been injured twice now in the UFC causing him to lose against Vera. If the Brazilian can survive O’Malley’s overwhelming amount strikes I strongly believe he can pull off the win. O’Malley is fighter who is constantly using his footwork to his advantage. If Almeida’s can land some combinations involving the right leg, his ankle will start to give out on him again. One final point I will make for you is Almeida is one loss away from getting cut. Hard to bet against a man whose back is against the wall. We got a great match up here and if you disagree I do not blame you.
Thomas Almeida (+250)
Two normal picks, a Whale play and a risky underdog. UFC 260 looked to be a great ppv event back when it was originally planned, but injuries are inevitable in this sport. Alexander Volkanovski vs a new and improved Brian Ortega will be reschedule. Feeling confident in these predictions, lets win some money on UFC 260.
