UFC 239

Recommended Posts

My predictions...

Jones v Santos - Jones stoppage, similar to his 2nd fight Gustafsson.

Nunes v Holm - Holm decision, if she can kick box Nunes for 5 rounds and not get caught on the ground (like the Miesha Tate fight) she can cause the upset. 

Masvidal v Askren - Askren decision, I believe Askren will dominate with his wrestling/grappling. 

Blanchowicz v Rockhold - Rockhold decision, fairly equal with their stand up kick boxing, but Rockhold will change levels and take it to the ground now and again.

Sanchez v Chiesa - Chiesa decision, a pick em fight, but I think Sanchez is now "long in the tooth" and will be beaten by a more youthful fighter.

I agree with Jones he should get the stoppage. 

Holm I hope she will win but for me I think Nunes will have a little too much power. 

Askren should win to but with the bookies I see value in the stoppage got a very good price of 19/5 with Marathon Bet. 

I just don't envise a Rockhold decision if he does what he is capable job it should end with a stoppage if not I see Jan taking over I reckon a Jan decision is more likely but I'm going with Fight doesn't go to decision. 

Chiesa should easily get the job done definately not a pickem in anyway. I see a Sub here I just hope he doesn't decide to pound on Diego.

The No Bet Fights : 
 
I expect Arnold Allen to Win but -300 line isn't for me. 
Also Vera at -400 I believe his opponent is better than these odds but I'm opting out.

I've just watched the weigh-in.

Holms weigh in at 133.5 lbs which I'm very surprised at as you don't usually see fighters that come under the weight limit by more than 1 lb, Nunes weigh in at 135 lbs. Both had footwear on, but Holms face looked a little gaunt to me, may a tactic to be faster and lighter on her feet 🤷‍♂️.
