Name: Danny Henry
Opponent: Dan Ige
Odds: +125 (bet $100 to win $125)
Danny Henry enters his third UFC fight as the underdog yet again. He’s never been listed as the favorite for any of his fights. After his two-fight win streak, it’s sort of surprising to see him not a favorite here either.
This is especially true since Henry is a talented defensive wrestler and Ige relies a bit too heavily on the takedown. In Ige’s only loss in the UFC, a decision to Julio Arce, he was stuffed on 12 of 13 takedown attempts. Arce is a solid defensive grappler as well, but I’m not sure the difference is all that great. This means that Ige may be forced to stand and trade with Henry, who throws a real heavy right cross that put away Hakeem Dawodu.
