UFC 223 Betting Odds and Predictions
UFC 223 has become a complete mess. After Conor McGregor’s bus episode on Thursday and Max Holloway being deemed unfit to compete, the card looks completely different than it’d 48 hours before the function.
So, I am going to give you a quicker, shorter than normal preview and forecasts for the newly revised UFC 223 card.
First, the primary event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Al Iaquinta. Iaquinta is a fighter with defense in every aspect of the game. However, the only time we have seen him fight in the last two years was a quick victory on a shop-worn Diego Sanchez. Nurmagomedov has the ideal grappling in MMA although there are absolutely some holes in his remarkable match, it just does not matter once”The Eagle” gets his hands on his competitor. Nurmagomedov will win however, don’t doubt Iaquinta’s capacity to make this one demanding for the Russian.
The co-main occasion, which thankfully has not yet been influenced, sees Joanna Jedrzejczyk look to regain her strawweight title vs Rose Namajunas. Jedrzejczyk was clearly not herself in the very first battle, which can likely be attributed to her inability to crack Namajunas emotionally before stepping foot to the Octagon. Although Jedrzejczyk is more focused this time around, Namajunas is a much more full mixed martial artist and I visit”Thug Rose” squeaking out a tough win.
Calvin Kattar and Renato Moicano are comparable fighters from the fact that they prefer to conquer opponents in the striking game. Kattar prefers to be the aggressor while Moicano likes to stick at range, working his jabs and leg kicks. I give the advantage to Moicano thanks to his movement and ability to stay calm against a competitive striker.
Zabit Magomedsharipov, among the best prospects at the featherweight division, has his opportunity to shine on the PPV when he takes on Kyle Bochniak. Magomedsharipov absolutely demolished his first two opponents from the UFC on his approach to entry successes. Bochniak is a low-output striker who is more worried about defense than offense. But in all honesty, Bochniak has been fed to Magomedsharipov. This should not even be a competition.
A couple high-octane combatants confront at the PPV curtain-jerker, as UFC stalwart Joe Lauzon takes on Chris Gruetzemacher. Lauzon has natural pop in his hands but poor striking defense and is at his finest at scrambles when he can utilize his slick submissions. Gruetzemacher has not tried a takedown in his UFC tenure; instead,”Gritz” targets relentless forward strain in the game that was striking. Lauzon’s tendency to get hit is a big issue but I expect his grappling skills to shine through.
