The Livest Dog at UFC 270: Cody Stamann

  • Name: Cody Stamann
  • Opponent: Said Nurmagomedov
  • Odds: +168 (bet $100 to win $168)

I think part of the inflation of odds here comes in due to the fact that the name Nurmagomedov is there. The ironic thing about all of that is that I think the wrestling side of things is really what’s going to cost him in this fight. He gave up a pair of takedowns to Raoni Barcelos and it cost him a decision in that fight. Stamann, meanwhile, typically beats anyone he can regularly take to the ground.

So while Stamann most certainly will be in a slight striking disadvantage, he will likely control the location of this fight. As long as he does it enough to win two rounds, the price here is very nice.
