Tonight the UFC is at the Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada for a 12-fight action packed card!
The Line: Matthew Semelsberger (+134) vs. Khaos Williams (-158)
Tonight one of the elite fights on this card happens between two lions at welterweight. Matthew Semelsberger (8-2) is up against Khaos Williams (11-2). Both fighters are strikers. Khaos Williams has not yet attempted a takedown in the UFC.
Khaos Williams lost his last fight against a well-matched opponent. However, the flare from the first two fights was not there. Matthew Semelsberger is rolling since coming into the UFC. Landing 7.93 strikes per minute and blowing the doors off his last two opponents.
Accuracy matters more between two strikers than between to wrestlers. Semelsberger lands 50% of his strikes opposed to Williams with 45%. I see two different levels of mixed martial arts in this fight and Semelsberger has done more with less time and after Khaos Williams last fight I can’t side with him here.
Preston’s Best Bet: Matthew Semelsberger ML (+134)
