Aug. 12 * All Chances Taken
Cormier (22-1 and a single no-contest) is coming off of an entry win over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 and is looking to defend his heavyweight title for the very first time. Before he pumped out Miocic at UFC 226 to win the belt and turned into a two-division winner.
Back in Strikeforce,’DC’ was also a heavyweight where he won the branch’s Grand Prix and will be undefeated at heavyweight with notable wins over Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva, Frank Mir, and Roy Nelson.
Miocic (18-3) is coming off of a knockout loss to Cormier past July and has been waiting for a rematch ever since. Before the reduction to’DC’ the Cleveland-native defended his title a record three times as he pumped out Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, also overcome Francis Ngannou by choice.
He won the belt in UFC 198 when he pumped out Fabricio Werdum.
The odds suggest it’s going to be a close struggle and a difficult fight to call, and I am in that boat. In the very first fight, Miocic had success on his feet using his attain and jab efficiently to stay at range and fire combinations in Cormier. Cormier’s game plan finally won out because he managed to get inside and make it a’filthy’ boxing fight, where he would clinch, throw elbows and short shouts — the specific punch that pumped Miocic out.
Within this fight, I don’t see that happening, since I think it’s going to be a very close battle, but both will probably go the distance. If they do, then it is going to be Daniel Cormier receiving his hands raised as he’ll utilize his wrestling inside this battle and his pressure to design and also dictate the pace to win a close battle.
Pick: Daniel Cormier (-140)
Pettis (22-8) is coming off of his welterweight debut back in March at which he knocked out Stephen Thompson in dramatic style. Before he dropped to Tony Ferguson at UFC 229 after he had beaten Michael Chiesa in UFC 226. ‘Showtime’ is that the former UFC lightweight winner and had struggled like a?? featherweight before.
Diaz (19-11) hasn’t fought since UFC 202 at August of 2016 in which he dropped to Conor McGregor. Ever since then, he’s been on the sidelines for unknown reasons waiting for a fight. Prior to the reduction to the Irishman, he shockingly beat him by submission at UFC 196.
Another super close struggle to call. Pettis has fought far more lately which I give the advantage to given that you never know what sort of shape somebody will be in following three years away in the Octagon. However, the Diaz brothers are always training and in form, and at welterweight, the two fighters ought to be better.
In this struggle, for Pettis, it’ll be tough to knock out Diaz as he has a very good chin, however, the potency at 170 is legit. But many are pointing to Diaz’s pace and cardio that is too much for Pettis that is a good point, as they suit up so equally standing and on the ground. However, I think Pettis is only marginally better and will get his hand raised by choice.
Pick: Anthony Pettis (-125)
Here are the odds for your remaining conflicts on this card.
Let’s have fun and keep it civil.
