UFC has an impressive fight card for us this evening!
Today’s best focuses on a welterweight fight that I am stoked for! Claudio Silva bolstering a (14-2) record enters this bout after suffering a loss to James Krause. Court McGee enters this fight with a (19-10) record. McGee has had a lot of fights in his career but has been unable to find his footing inside the UFC octagon as of late; losing his last three in a row.
The Line: Claudio Silva (-106) vs. Court McGee (-116)
Both fighters will be looking to get out to a fast start. McGee has a standing reach advantage but both fighters are the same height. Silva averages 3.01 takedowns per 15 minute fight. While attempting at least 1 submission in that time period. McGee has not used his wrestling for much of his career.
At this point in McGee’s career he his beginning to rack up a lot of losses against fighters in the twilight of their prime. Silva is not out of contention for another run at Welterweight gold but he needs another big performance tonight to keep those UFC dreams alive. In the striking department both men are fairly even. Silva strikes with more accuracy and McGee defends with better accuracy.
Preston’s Best Bet: Claudio SIlva ML (-106)
