View the Stakes below for UFC FN148:
Justin Willis Breakdown:
Willis is moving up the ranking and keeps his underrated tag. Though he looks to hold a lot of extra weight he’s among the more athletic heavyweights. On the feet he has fast hands and will certainly have an adequate advantage over Curtis Blaydes, whose stand-up continues to look rigid and predictable. Willis hasn’t been tested in the takedown department but trains with superior wrestlers like DC and Cain. Having a complete camp preparing for Blaydes, we expect him to at least be aggressive in this region to keep the fight standing for considerable time. Blaydes struggled to takedown southpaw fighters in the past and also the size of Willis should be of further assistance. With the chances presented, the value lies with the underdog at a stylistic fight that could present many opportunities.John Makdessi Breakdown:
Makdessi has rather solid stand-up and impenetrable takedown defense. He appears to be a couple of levels above his opponent Jesus Pinedo, who is relatively inexperienced and awkward on the feet. He favours flashy kicks but his lack of footwork leaves him open to be bloated and weathered. Makdessi includes a higher volume and will have the ability to consistently land on Pinedo. Since moving to a top new camp he seems rejuvenated and appeared really impressive in recent outings. The encounter advantage for Makdessi is enormous and the only clear way to lose this one is by getting clipped with a crazy kick. The choice is Makdessi.
Bet = Makdessi at 1.38 (-260) chances. Risk 4 Units to win 1.52 Units.
Frankie Saenz Breakdown:
Saenz is getting older but still possesses a style to provide his opponent trouble. He depends upon his wrestling and pressure to secure rounds while his standup is serviceable. Vera is a crazy fighter who is often losing struggles until he finds out a comeback win. He is obviously dangerous but if he cant locate the end the fight will quickly slip away. Vera will have the youth and rate advantage but Saenz are the one securing rounds with volume and takedowns against a fighter who fights off his spine. The experience advantage for Saenz will be a big factor against this kind of fighter. Saenz will have to avoid submissions but a route to success for the underdog is apparent.
Bet = Saenz at 2.45 (+145) chances. Risk 3 Units to acquire 4.35 Units.
Chris Gutierrez Breakdown:
Gutierrez seems to get his competitor outmatched in just about any aspect with this matchup. He has the exceptional striking skills, more recognized grappling and takedown defense. Furthermore the degree of resistance he’s experienced far surpasses Macdonald who has largely faced fighters with losing records. Macdonald may be undefeated but he’s fought against such lesser fighters and had several really close fights visit decision. His one positive appears to be toughness as he recovers well from being dropped. We like the favorite to get this one finished early.
Bet = Gutierrez at 1.4 (-250) chances. Risk 4 Units to acquire 1.6 Units.
