UFC 273 Tips and Predictions

News Content

It’s that time of the month again, the UFC is back with a stacked PPV involving two title fights and the people’s main event.

Florida will be buzzing this weekend with a packed arena as another classic PPV is set to go down & we cannot wait for these fights to play out.

The PPVs in 2022 have not disappointed yet and these fights are set to live up to the hype and more.

We had an unlucky stint with our best bets last time missing out on two tickets by a close margin as Askar Askarov lost a close decision and Curtis Blaydes got the job done before the final bell.

Although we did cash in one ticket in Bryan Barberena to win at some nice odds @1.91.

We're back this week and we're switching things around as we'll be breaking down the intriguing matchup between Gilbert Burns & Khamzat Chimaev which is labeled as the people's main event.

We're anticipating some exciting fights and finishes this weekend, so we're back to pick some smart lines for you guys. So, let's get straight into it!

Gilbert Burns vs Khamzat Chimaev

This is one of the most underrated three round fights in recent UFC history and we believe it deserves the attention.

Khamzat Chimaev is one of the biggest hyped prospects in this UFC roster and four fights into his UFC career he is set for a title eliminator.

His career's biggest test is against the two-time No-Gi World Champion and current rank two Welterweight contender, Gilbert Burns.

Gilbert Burns has had a great career resurgence since his move up to Welterweight, which has seen him win four fights in a row and fight for the belt.

Burns gave Usman some adversity before coming up short, but he has beaten some of the best in this division like Stephen Thompson, Damian Maia, and Tyron Woodley.

Gilbert Burns is dangerous wherever the fight goes given his lethal knockout power on the feet and elite submission skills on the mat.

His dance partner this weekend is riding the hype train and has all the fight fans convinced that he is a future champion.

Khamzat Chimaev has had one of the most impressive starts to the UFC winning four fights in a row by finish and merely absorbing two clean strikes while doing so.

Chimaev has proven his knockout power, but it is his pressure-heavy wrestling where the experience lies.

With six knockouts and four submission wins in his 10-0 UFC career, Chimaev will be set for a title shot if he gets the biggest win of his career this weekend.

This fight is very intriguing, but we believe Chimaev will look to wrestle regardless of the credentials Burns holds on the ground.

Contrarily, the pathway to victory for Burns is by taking Chimaev to deep waters by threatening submissions and backing him up with his power shots.

Best Bets

Our first best bet this weekend is a parlay involving Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Petr Yan.

Jairzinho has beaten some tough competition and only lost to three men who are currently ranked inside the top-4 of this Heavyweight division.

We think he faces Tybura who is very hittable, and it provides a favorable matchup for the heavy-hitting kickboxer.

For our second leg, we're picking Petr Yan to continue his dominance and regain his belt.

He's looking better than ever and his previous encounter versus Sterling proved that he is the better fighter between the two, so we're backing him to cash this ticket for us.

Our next best bet is on this intriguing Welterweight bout between Gilbert Burns and Khamzat Chimaev.

We think the odds are horribly off on this one as Burns is an elite fighter with threatening skills and much more experience.

Chimaev has never been over the 1.5 round mark in his career, and he may lack experience in pacing himself here, so we're backing the huge upset at @ 5.80 in Gilbert Burns.

Our final pick this weekend comes on the main event of the evening fought between the reigning & defending Featherweight Champion, Alexander Volkanovski, and The Korean Zombie.

We think this fight is going to be one-sided, Volkanovski is just too good and we think he is going to yet again dominate another top contender.

The champ has excellent feints and striking which will give The Zombie some trouble on the feet.

We think Volkanovski has been close to getting a finish and this weekend he will get a well-earned finish to unlock his third title defence.

Selections: Jairzinho Rozenstruik + Petr Yan (Win market) @1.99 Gilbert Burns (Win market) @5.80 Alexander Volkanovski by Knockout (Win method) @3.30 Parlay all Selections @38.1
