Two of the top fighters in the UFC battle it out in a Featherweight match on Saturday as Frankie Edgar and Yair Rodriguez battle.
The winner of this bout is likely set up for a title fight, which puts heavy implications and pressure on both fighters.
We’ll see a lot of experience, but certainly get a lot more from the side of Edgar. While Rodriguez is still a more youthful fighter, he’s making his name known extremely quick and is really climbing the rankings as he enters with just one loss.
One thing interesting to watch here will be whether or not Rodriguez can handle that big stage. This is going to be his first fight on the national stage against one of the top fighters.
He’s got a different style that always leaves his opposition guessing what he can do on his feet or on the ground.
Edgar has to lean on his experience here. He’s seen almost every style of fighter in his career, which should play to his advantage.
He doesn’t have bad odds here and probably has the value.
MMA Betting Pick: Frankie Edgar -150
