Jan Blachowicz Breakdown:
Both guys come into this battle career highs. Santos has looked unstoppable since moving up to light heavyweight, whilst Blachowicz now rides a dominant four fight win streak. This matchup however looks to favour Blachowicz in lots of ways. Durability and cardio is going to be a big factor and there a few tougher than Blachowicz. Santos yells everything with full power and is based on completing competitions. At a five round combat this strategy is a risky one that will backfire in the subsequent rounds. Blachowicz brings stopping power of their own but conserves cardio for a output. On the feet both guys can have their moments, but the exact jab of Blachowicz will be very likely to trigger Santos problems. His boxing is dangerous yet crazy and also a straight jab is one of the best counters to looping hooks. The largest advantage goes to Blachowicz around the ground. As Santos tires that the takedowns will be open and Santos has historically struggled at the grappling department. The BJJ black-belt skills should find Blachowicz a complete when the opportunity presents.
Bet = Blachowicz at 2.00 (+100) odds. Risk 3 Units to acquire 3.0 Units.
Damir Ismagulov Breakdown:
Ismagulov welcomes the UFC newcomer in what ought to be a one sided affair. On the feet Ismagulov is quick with his out and in striking. Defensively he avoids trouble whilst throwing in some flashy strikes to keep opponents guessing. Alvarez looks slower on the feet using a riskier design. He keeps his hands low but does throw competitive combinations. The significant differential lies at the grappling section. Alvarez hasn’t shown great takedown defense on the regional landscape and is based on high hazard admissions off his spine. Against UFC calibre opponents this strategy succeeds. Search for Ismagulov to push his edge standing and look for trips and takedowns into the mat in which he favours top and control position via ground and pound.
Bet = Ismagulov in 1.34 (-290) chances. Risk 5 Units to win 1.70 Units.
