UFC Betting – Jared Cannonier vs. Kelvin Gastelum
Jared Cannonier and Kelvin Gastelum are both coming off losses at the hands of Aussie Robert Whittaker. They both suffered decision losses against the former UFC middleweight champ and are looking to rebound on August 21.
Cannonier knows a win will get him to closer to his dream of fighting for a UFC title while Gastelum knows that an impressive win over Cannonier will once again put him in the mix for a title shot against champ Israel Adesanya.
Bet365 has Cannonier as the favorite (1.66) while Gastelum is an underdog with odds of (2.25). Cannonier is known for walking his opponents down and taking them apart but that’s going to be hard to do against Gastelum as he can not only take a shot but give it back as well.
Gastelum’s best chance to win will be to take Cannonier down and use his wrestling to keep him down and win each round. That’s going to be hard to do as Cannonier has shown in the past that he does have good take down defense.
Our experts think that Cannonier will have the better cardio as the fight progresses and it will help him win by decision.
UFC Betting – Clay Guida vs. Mark Madsen
UFC veteran Clay Guida is as tough as they come and loves nothing more than to stand and bang. His opponent Mark Madsen does not like to stand and bang as his strength is his wrestling. Dutch fighter Madsen is an Olympic silver medallist and has won 4 medals at the World Wrestling Championships.
Madsen is the favorite (1.58) as Guida is going to find it difficult to keep the fight standing. He is the underdog (2.40) who will give it his best but we don’t think that is going to be good enough against the wrestling skill and expertise of Madsen who has an undefeated record.
UFC Betting – Brandon Royval vs. Alexandre Pantoja
If you like to see a slug fest, you must watch this featherweight fight between Brandon Royval and Alexandre Pantoja. Bookmakers have Pantoja (1.57) as the betting favorite while Royval is the underdog (2.50).
Pantoja is ranked number 3 in the featherweight division while Royval is ranked number 6. If Pantoja gets an impressive win in this fight, he will be just one fight away from a title fight. Should Royval get the better of Pantoja it will move him into the top 5 rankings and make him a serious contender in the division.
We are going to back Pantoja to win this fight as we feel that he is the better overall fighter.
