Name: John Moraga
Opponent: Deiveson Figueiredo
Odds: +140 (bet $100 to win $140)
It’s kind of criminal how underrated John Moraga has been in his time. People forget that this guy was the second challenger for Demetrious Johnson’s flyweight title. He’s beaten a pretty impressive list of flyweights, including back to back ranked fighters.
In his last fight against #7 ranked Wilson Reis, he showed off just how dominant of a wrestler he can be by dragging Reis to the ground eight times. Seeing as Figuerido allowed 7 of 11 takedowns to inferior wrestler Jarred Brooks, this seems like a clear advantage for Moraga.
It’s pretty easy to see a path for Moraga to use dominating wrestling and win a decision here.
