A fight card deeply rich with talent has the UFC center stage at 4 PM CST today! The headliner is sure to be a war between Curtis Blaydes V Derrick Lewis. Here are my precise picks and make sure to scroll down and subscribe for my best bet of the night!
The Line: Nate Landwehr (-118) V Julian Erosa (+100)
Nate “The Train” Landwehr will lock horns with Julian “Juicy J” Erosa in what is one of the many fantastic stylistic-matchups on the card. The power of Nate Landwehr is undeniable as he pieced up veteran Darrin Elkins in his last bout for a unanimous decision victory. Landwehr lands 6.89 significant strikes per minute; opposed to Erosa at a 4.92 clip (Via) UFCstats.com.
Erosa is no easy-out and he will look for openings to implement his game plan. However, Nate Landwehr has an 85% takedown defense (Via) UFCstats.com. Lendwehr also trains out of the SSF Submission Academy. My belief is the stage is a bit too big for Erosa and Nate Landwehr has more ways to finish this fight and at worst a decision victory.
My wager: Nate Landwehr ML (-118).
