Aug. 12 * All Odds Taken
Cormier (22-1 and 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 pumped out Miocic at UFC 226 to acquire the belt and turned into a two-division winner.
Back in Strikeforce,’DC’ was likewise 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, also Roy Nelson.
Miocic (18-3) is coming from a knockout loss to Cormier past July and has been awaiting to get a rematch ever since. Before the reduction to’DC’ the Cleveland-native defended his title a record three times as he knocked out Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, and defeat Francis Ngannou by choice.
He won the buckle in UFC 198 if he knocked out Fabricio Werdum.
The chances suggest it’s going to be a close battle and a tough fight to call, and I am in that boat. In the first battle, Miocic had success on his feet with his attain and jab effectively to stay at range and flame combinations in Cormier. Cormier’s game strategy eventually won out as he was able to get inside and make it a’dirty’ boxing battle, where he would clinch, throw elbows and short punches — the specific punch that pumped Miocic out.
In this struggle, I do not see that happening, since I think it will be a very close battle, but both can move the distance. When they do, it will be Daniel Cormier becoming his hand raised as he’ll use his wrestling in this fight and his pressure to style and also dictate the pace to win a close fight.
Pick: Daniel Cormier (-140)
Pettis (22-8) is coming from the welterweight coming back in March where he pumped out Stephen Thompson in dramatic style. Before he dropped to Tony Ferguson at UFC 229 after he’d defeated Michael Chiesa in UFC 226. ‘Showtime’ is that the former UFC lightweight winner and had struggled to get a?? featherweight before.
Diaz (19-11) hasn’t fought as UFC 202 at August of 2016 in which he dropped to Conor McGregor. Ever since that time, he’s been on the sidelines for unidentified motives awaiting a struggle. Before the reduction to the Irishman, he beat him by submission at UFC 196.
Another super close fight to call. Pettis has fought way more lately which I give the benefit to given the fact you never know what type of shape somebody would probably be in following three years away from the Octagon. Yet, the Diaz brothers ‘ are always training and in shape, and in welterweight, the two fighters should be better.
In this struggle, for Pettis, it’ll be tough to knock Diaz as he has a very good chin, however, the strength at 170 is legit. However, many are pointing towards Diaz’s pace and cardio that is a lot for Pettis which is a fantastic point, as they suit up so evenly standing and around the floor. But, I think Pettis is just marginally better and will get his hand raised by choice.
Select: Anthony Pettis (-125)
