Event: UFC 241: Cormier vs. Miocic 2
Date: August 17th 2019
Time: 10 PM ET
Location: Honda Center
Broadcast: PPV, ESPN, ESPN +
Main Card (10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT on Pay-Per-View)
Daniel Cormier (-140) vs. Stipe Miocic (+110)
The main event features Daniel Cormier going against Stipe Miocic for the second time. These two fought last year too with Cormier ending the fight int he first round by knockout.
Cormier has been talking a lot heading into this fight and I think he is squarely in Miocic’s head at this point and that is going to be bad news for Miocic.
I think Miocic is going to come out early and make some mistakes because he wants this so bad. Look for Cormier to win this one again by knockout.
MMA Betting Pick: Cormier KO
Anthony Pettis (-135) vs. Nate Diaz (+105)
Anthony Pettis has been fighting a lot of good fighters heading into this one, while Nate Diaz hasn’t had a fight in over three years.
I think that layoff is going to hurt Diaz and although I don’t think he will gas early, I think the nerves are going to get him.
This is a big fight for Diaz and there has been talk that with a win he could face McGregor, but I don’t think that will happen.
This one will probably going to decision, but Pettis will win.
MMA Betting Pick: Pettis
Yoel Romero (-160) vs. Paulo Costa (+125)
Yoel Romero really hard to work hard to get a weight cut and I think that is going to affect him in this fight, and I expect the late money is going to come in on Costa.
If Costa is still at plus money when this fight happens I really love this pick, but if it’s not plus money I would stay far away from this one.
This one is all about the value, and Costa presents that in this one.
MMA Betting Pick: Back Costa, but only at plus money.
