The Line: Dustin Jacoby (-162) V. Maxim Grishin (+136)
Dustin “The Hanya” Jacoby is fighting out of Springfield, Illinois looking to notch his third straight win in the UFC promotion. Maxim Grishin is the durable Russian veteran looking to keep his momentum alive in the UFC. Jacoby lands 3.62 strikes per minute opposed to Grishin’s 2.08 strikes landed per minute. Jacoby has underrated leg kicks that he can set his opponent up for big shots with. Grishin was too small for heavyweight and at light heavyweight he severely missed the weight cut by 4.5 pounds. The future is bright for Jacoby if he can finish Girshin in this fight. As for Grishin it’s harder to see what the endgame is at this leg of his career win or lose. Jacoby has much more to earn in his own right tonight. I don’t anticipate a wrestling match and I believe Jacoby is sharper in the stand-up game.
