Episode 76: UFC 231
Damon and Kaz talk about UFC 231 and the Tito Ortiz/Chuck Liddell fight.
Max Holloway (c) vs. Brian Ortega
Curious to see how Holloway’s health holds up in this fight. I like Ortega in this fight either way.
Valentina Shevchenko vs. Joanna Jędrzejczyk
This is the 4th combat sports meeting between these two women. Valentina is 3-0 in their previous meetings, which were contested in Muay Thai. Joanna’s coach, Mike Thomas Brown, believes that Valentina will be too passive and look to counter, but I think that’s where Valentina will have her greatest success and take a clear cut decision.
Alex Oliveira vs. Gunnar Nelson
Oliveira has a lot of power in his hands and a good ground game, but it’s not as good as Gunnar’s. Gunnar also has crisp striking and deceptive power in his hands. The further the fight goes, the more it favors Gunnar. Looking for Gunnar to get a submission in the 2nd or 3rd round
Hakeem Dawodu vs. Kyle Bochniak
Bochniak has built a bit of a following after his last fight with Zabit Magomedsharipov. He’s got an iron chin, a huge heart and some good boxing. He’s going to need that chin and heart to lean on against the heavy hands and blackletcism of Hakeem Dawodu. I see Hakeem taking an exciting decision.
Jimi Manuwa vs. Thiago Santos
DO YOU LIKE VIOLENCE? THIS FIGHT IS EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED. SOMEONE’S GONNA END UP TWITCHING ON THE MAT. BET THE HOUSE ON THE UNDER (and also Jimi Manuwa). Poster Boy by round 1 KO.
Preliminary Card (Fox Sports 1)
Cláudia Gadelha vs. Nina Ansaroff
Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Gilbert Burns
Katlyn Chookagian vs. Jessica Eye
Elias Theodorou vs. Eryk Anders
Theodorou being a favorite in this fight is solely because they’re in Canada. Bet the house on Anders.
