BettingPro’s 5 UFC Fight Night Brazil Bets
Bet 1) Kevin Lee to beat Charles Oliveira by KO/TKO or Submission @ EVS
The link-up with Firas Zahabi at the Tristar Gym in Montreal has provided Kevin Lee with the spark he needed to get back on track. He got back to winning ways with an impressive stoppage win last time out and we should see another here at Charles Oliveira’s expense.
Bet 2) Gilbert Burns to beat Demian Maia by Decision @ 6/5
This is a huge fight for Gilbert Burns – if he beats perennial contender Demian Maia he will become a legitimate contender at 170lbs himself. Maia may be a jiu jitsu wizard, but Burns can hold his own on the mat and he also has the striking ability to outwork the veteran Brazilian over three rounds.
Bet 3) Renato Moicano to beat Damir Hadzovic by Decision @ 11/10
Renato Moicana is aiming to stop the rot after back-to-back knockout defeats at the hands of Jose Aldo and ‘Korean Zombie’. He should do just that at the expense of Damir Hadzovic, who is 3-3 since joining the UFC and has no notable names on his CV.
Bet 4) Johnny Walker to beat Nikita Krylov by KO/TKO or Submission @ 10/11
The Johnny Walker hype train was halted by a TKO defeat to Corey Anderson in November, but he will have learned his lessons from that night and should come out firing here. I expect a return to form with a stoppage success.
Bet 5) David Dvorak to beat Bruno Silva by KO/TKO or Submission @ 13/8
David Dvorak arrives in the UFC on a 13-fight win streak, with every single victory coming via stoppage, and he has the potential to become a major player in the flyweight division straight away. I am backing him to make a big impression here.
