Islam Makhachev v Bobby Green UFC Vegas 49 Betting Tips & Predictions

Bobby Green has stepped in at the last minute to replace the injured Beneil Dariush, and he fully expects to get his arm raised against Islam Makhachev.

Makhachev was scheduled to face Dariush in Las Vegas in the main event, but the whole card looked in doubt until Green answered the SOS.

Green, who is 35 years of age, is ready to go and he believes he is the ‘uncrowned BMF’ champion of the lightweight division.

Big talk, and people will only believe him if he manages to make light work of Makhachev and gets an early stoppage.

Green has 42 fights under his belt. He has won 29 – 10 by knockout, eight by submission and 11 courtesy of a points decision.

Green has the experience, but can he do it at the top level? He has 12 losses to his name, and he is going up against a man who has only tasted one defeat since turning professional.

Makhachev has not tasted defeat since losing to Adriano Martins back at UFC 192 in October 2015. He has since gone nine fights undefeated – including wins over Dan Hooker and Thiago Moses.

Makhachev has won 10 of his 21 victories by submission and I am backing him to make Green tap out.

Green will go for a quick knockout to try and prove his dominance, but Makhachev will be wise to his tactics. He will take his time and finally wear him down to get him to submit.
