Aug. 12 * All Odds Taken
Cormier (22-1 plus one no-contest) is coming off of a submission win over Derrick Lewis in UFC 230 and now is looking to defend his heavyweight title for the very first time. Before that, he knocked out Miocic at UFC 226 to acquire the belt and turned into a two-division winner.
In Strikeforce,’DC’ was also a heavyweight where he won the division’s Grand Prix and is undefeated at heavyweight with notable wins over Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva, Frank Mir, and Roy Nelson.
Miocic (18-3) is coming off of a weight reduction to Cormier past July and was waiting for a rematch ever since. Before the reduction to’DC’ that the Cleveland-native defended his title a record three times because he knocked out Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, also conquer Francis Ngannou by decision.
He won the belt in UFC 198 when he knocked out Fabricio Werdum.
The odds suggest it will be a close battle and a difficult fight to phone, and I am in this boat. In the first fight, Miocic had success on his toes using his attain and jab efficiently to stay at range and flame combinations at Cormier. Cormier’s game strategy eventually won out since he managed to get inside and make it a’filthy’ boxing battle, where he would clinch, throw elbows along with short punches — the specific punch that knocked Miocic out.
Within this fight, I don’t see that happening, as I think it will be a very close fight, but the two will move the distance. When they do, then it is going to be Daniel Cormier becoming his hands raised as he will utilize his wrestling inside this fight and his strain to design and dictate the pace to win a close fight.
Pick: Daniel Cormier (-140)
Pettis (22-8) is coming from the welterweight debut back in March in which he pumped out Stephen Thompson in spectacular fashion. Before he dropped to Tony Ferguson at UFC 229 later he had defeated Michael Chiesa in UFC 226. ‘Showtime’ is the former UFC lightweight champion and had fought as a?? featherweight before.
Diaz (19-11) hasn’t fought as UFC 202 at August of 2016 at which he lost to Conor McGregor. Ever since then, he’s been on the sidelines for unknown reasons awaiting a fight. Prior to the reduction to the Irishman, he shockingly beat him by entry at UFC 196.
Another superb close fight to predict. Pettis has fought far more lately which I give the benefit to given that you never know what type of shape somebody would probably be in after three decades away from the Octagon. Yet, the Diaz brothers are constantly training and in form, and at welterweight, the two fighters should be improved.
In this fight, for Pettis, it’ll be tough to knock out Diaz as he has an excellent chin, however, the potency at 170 is untrue. But many are pointing towards Diaz’s speed and cardio which is too much for Pettis that is a good point, as they suit up so evenly standing and on the ground. However, I think Pettis is just slightly better and will receive his hands increased by choice.
Pick: Anthony Pettis (-125)
Here are the odds for the remaining conflicts on the card.
Let’s have fun and keep it civil.
