Free UFC Vegas 44 Pick: Rob Font -145 vs Jose Aldo +115 (Bet Now!)
The UFC featherweight, greatest of all time Jose Aldo, caps off the main card in fashion against Rob Font. These two are head to head in the rankings, with Aldo looking to advance from the 5th to the 4th spot.
Some may believe Aldo is past his prime, however he’s far from washed up. Jose is currently on a two fight win streak, against top contenders, with his last loss handed to him by current dominant interim champion.
Regarding his opponent, Font’s on a dominant win streak after a stuttering start to his UFC career. Recently, he’s coming off an impressive win over former Bantamweight champion, Cody Garbrandt.
In addition, he’s also on a 4 fight win streak, with his last loss handed to him in 2018 by Raphael Assuncao.
Also keep in mind, many would believe Jose is the older fighter, however Rob had a later start to his career and they’re virtually the same age at 34, and 35.
MMA Betting Prediction: Jose Aldo – Decision
A lot of hype follows Rob Font after his impressive victory over Garbrandt, and his current streak against formidable opponents. However, Jose is way to experienced in every facet of the fight game, and he should win the fight everywhere it goes.
Free UFC Vegas 44 Pick: Brad Riddell +105 vs Rafael Fiziev -125 (Bet Now!)
This fight may steal fight of the night, as it’s expected to be a complete showstopper between these Muay Thai specialists. Riddell is currently 12th in the UFC lightweight rankings, while Fiziev is 14th.
Impressively, Brad Riddell has yet to taste defeat in the Octagon, amassing a four fight win streak so far with the promotion. However, he’s struggled to finish opponents, as he’s only won via decision.
Fair to note, two of those were fight of the nights, as he loves to put on a show for the fans.
On the the other side of the cage, will be Rafael Fiziev, who is very dangerous. He’s currently on a four fight win streak himself, only losing his first UFC fight. Also, in his short time with the promotion, he’s captured two fight of the nights, and a knockout of the night.
In addition, his last two victories came over Bobby Green, and Renato Moicano, two extremely game fighters.
MMA Prediction: Rafael Fiziev – KO
One thing is guaranteed, and that’s an absolute war between these two. The fight could go either way, but we’re leaning with Rafael Fiziev to knockout Riddell in spectacular fashion, handing him his first loss in the UFC.
Free UFC Vegas 44 Pick: Clay Guida +160 vs Leonardo Santos -190 (Bet Now!)
Both of these fighters are UFC veterans, but Clay Guida has been around far longer, with a much bigger fan base. In addition, many wrote off Clay a few years ago, while at the same time praising Santos as a future champ.
However, Leonardo lost most of his prime, due to multiple injury layoffs. Now, Santos is a ripe 41 years old and coming off the first knockout loss of his career, now with his back truly against the wall.
Moreover, this combination normally equals disaster in the fight game, as Santos could be very nervous to take risks, for fear of being knocked out again. Which in return, could result in a dominant decision win for the UFC veteran, Clay Guida.
In addition, the knockout could’ve been the start of his chin deteriorating, which could also result in an easy flash KO win for Clay Guida.
MMA Prediction: Clay Guida – Decision
Guida is on a mission as of late, beating a very game Michael Johnson, and going to a split decision with Olympian, Mark Madsen. While Leonardo Santos appears to be on his way out of The UFC, after getting knocked out by an unranked fighter in his last bout.
Free UFC Vegas 44 Pick: Jimmy Crute -190 vs Jamahal Hill +160 (Bet Now!)
Two Light Heavyweight division rising stars clash this Saturday night, in a fight which we ensure will bring carnage. Furthermore, Crute is ranked 13th, and Hill is ranked 14th in their division.
Unfortunately, both fighters come off important losses, which was just the first in Jamahal Hill’s career, and the second in Jimmy Crute’s.
This is the classic matchup of striker vs grappler, while Jimmy can strike, he prefers to be on the ground. On the flip, we’ve yet to see what Jamahal Hill can do on the mat, as he’s your typical knockout artist.
MMA Prediction: Jimmy Crute – Submission
With all that being said, we have to side with the more well rounded Jimmy Crute. Reason being, he should be able to control this fight with his grappling attributes, and win by submission or TKO via ground and pound.
