UFC Fight Night: Vettori vs Cannonier

News Content

What's up, fight fans?

UFC 289 was amazing as we saw the great Amanda Nunes ride off into the sunset and Charles Oliveira reminded us why he is still the best.

We had an amazing week by cashing in our parlay, so we're looking to ride the momentum this week into this fun fight night card, so let's dive right in!!

Marvin Vettori vs Jared Cannonier

The chaos in the UFC Middleweight division has calmed down since Israel Adesanya regained his throne and solidified himself as the king again.

The division is hungry for the next challenger to emerge and a fight between rank 3 and 4 is going to be exciting.

Marvin "The Italian Dream" Vettori has been a key figure in the Middleweight division having fought for the belt and beating top contenders.

Vettori has beaten some top names in his 14-fight UFC career like Paulo Costa, Jack Hermansson, and Kevin Holland.

His pressuring grappling has given issues to many in the division including the champion and he has proven to be a nightmare matchup.

The Italian Dream will collide with the Killa Gorilla this weekend in pursuit of their respective second shots at UFC gold.

Enter, Jared Cannonier who has taken the division by storm in his 8-fight Middleweight stint which has seen him fight for the belt.

The Killa Gorilla is one of only three fighters to hold knockouts in three different divisions which makes him a force to be reckoned with.

Cannonier has beaten tough contenders like Anderson Silva, Kelvin Gastelum, and Derek Brunson.

This is a perfect grappler vs striker matchup, and it would be interesting to see if Marvin Vettori's impressive chin can hold up against the power of Cannonier.

Best Bets

Our first bet this week comes on our co-main event between Arman Tsarukyan and Joaquim Silva.

We think Tsarukyan has taken a massive step down in competition and is the much better fighter.

We are confident in predicting that he should run through Silva via knockout in the initial rounds.

Our final pick comes on our main event.

This is a great fight and an incredibly close one to call given the uncertainties on display.

Cannonier has an impeccable takedown defence, but he is up against one of the best grapplers in the division.

Vettori has arguably one of the best chins but he's up against the biggest power puncher in the division.

We'll take a shot at Jared Cannonier as it may take only 1 blow for him to get his hands raised and his impressive takedown defence will earn him spots on the feet.
