UFC is back and we have plenty of action of the next few weeks including tonight’s UFC Fight Night w/ the headliner being Anthony Smith vs. Glover Teixeira!
We’ll start off our lineup with focusing on the Smith/Teixeira fight. Teixeira is very tempting at his price-point however, I’m going to have a hard time getting away from Anthony Smith with his tremendous power that can end any fight very quickly. Smith has looked good as of late, with his only recent loss being to Jon Jones and as he has both youth and power on his side, I see Smith knocking out Teixeira.
I’m paying up for Ricky Simon in his match-up agianst Ray Borg. Simon has dropped his last two matches however, Simon is outstanding when it comes to takedowns & advances and although I think Borg is going to be a challenge, I think Simon walks away with a victory here.
I’m going to be spending up a bit up for both Drew Dober & Philipe Lins who I think both have solid potential to knock out their opponents tonight.
Dober is averaging about 4.5 significant strikes per minutes and has ended his last two fights by KO/TKO in the 1st round.
This will be Lins first UFC fight but he has some solid experience with 17 professional MMA fight in which he has racked up 14 wins. Lins should have the power advantage over Arlovski who hasn’t looked great as of late, losing 5 of his last 6 fights.
Rounding out our team, we’re going to be going with Thiago Moises & Gabriel Benitez.
