RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – OCTOBER 25: Beneil Dariush of the United States celebrates victory against Diego Ferreira of Brazil in their lightweight bout during the UFC 179 event at Maracanazinho on October 25, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. (Photo by Buda Mendes/Getty Images)


Name: Beneil Dariush

Opponent: Edson Barboza

Odds: +150 (bet $100 to win $150)


It’s clear that Barboza has far better striking than Dariush. After all, Barboza may have some of the best pure striking in the lightweight division. However, that is exactly what is making him an overrated favorite. While all fights start on the feet, Dariush is excellent in using his striking to get on the inside. Once he is inside, his grappling is a clear area of strength and a mismatch for Barboza. If this gets down to the mat, these odds would be nice to capitalize on.
