UFC Paris Odds

The oddsmakers expect this fight between the UFC’s middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and No. 5 ranked contender Sean Strickland lopsided in favor of the champion. Adesanya’s only loss at middleweight was a last round knockout to the former champion Alex Pereira after dominating the whole fight which then Adesanya avenged that loss when he knocked out Pereira to finally get a win over his arch-nemesis. Strickland on the other hand, has won three in a row and took this title fight on about a month’s notice after Dricus Du Plessis declined to fight due to injury.

UFC 293 Best Bets & Predictions

Shane Young (-170)

Shane Young comes into this fight on a three-fight skid winless over the last four years and is desperate for a win as he takes on Gabriel Miranda this weekend in Sydney, Australia. Young just hasn’t been up to his skill level in recent fights, letting winnable fights slip out of his grasp. Now, he gets to take on a fighter who’s primarily a grappler in Gabriel Miranda in hopes of getting back on track.

Miranda is a fun fighter to watch as he is always going to bring the fight to his opponent all while throwing caution to the wind. He will look to throw powerful strikes into a takedown and once it hits the mat it’s his world but that will be easier said than done when taking on someone as experienced as Young. Young has done well in the past defending takedowns and on the feet, he is much more polished and should be the minute-winner there. As long as Young keeps this fight standing it should be his fight to lose.

 

Carlos Ulberg (-260)

Carlos Ulberg is a big part of the City Kickboxing crew that is finally rounding out to form as he is currently on a four-fight winning streak ever since dropping his UFC debut. Three of those four wins have come by knockout and he has a real chance at making it four straight knockout victories in a row when he takes on Da Un Jung this weekend at UFC 293.

Da Un Jung looked like a real contender when he rattled off four victories in his first five fights with the UFC but he has since lost two in a row and just looked out of place against a slow and methodical Devin Clark. Jung will certainly attempt takedowns in this fight but not being able to hold down someone like William Knight leads me to believe Ulberg will get back to his feet and when this fight is on the feet and at range, Ulberg will win every moment of it. Ultimately, Ulberg will look to sprawl and brawl to yet another knockout victory on his resume.

Jack Jenkins (-200)

Jack Jenkins got his shot in the UFC off a great showing on the Contender Series and he has done one better winning both of his two fights in the UFC. Granted his last fight was a close and controversial split decision against a tough Jamall Emmers but Jenkins will be looking to show that fight was a fluke when he takes on the very game Chepe Mariscal at UFC 293ย  in front of his home crowd.

Chepe Mariscal got the call to fight in the UFC on short notice when he stepped up in weight to take on Trevor Peek who he out brawled for 15 minutes. It was a savage performance and more of that will be needed in this fight against the much more technical Jenkins. Jenkins has the perfect style to combat what Mariscal will be throwing at him. Mariscal will be looking to push the pace and be the aggressor and attempt to make this a dirty and gritty fight meanwhile, Jenkins will be looking to keep his distance and keep this a clean and technical striking affair. As long as Jenkins doesn’t get drawn into a brawl with Mariscal, he should be able to keep this fight at kicking range just mixing up his attacks and outstriking him to a unanimous decision victory.
