UFC 264: ‘Poirier vs. McGregor 3’ Preston’s Precise Picks+Best Bet

Tonight the UFC has a top-notch 13-fight card headlined by Dustin Poirier vs. Connor McGregor 3!

Our attention turns to the prelims for tonight’s best bet! Alen Amedovski (8-2) is up against Hu Yaozong (3-2) to kick off the nights festivities. Alen Amedovski at the crisp age of 35 has had success in his mixed martial arts career. Once he stepped in the UFC it was as if his career hit a brick wall. His last fight was in 2019 where he was knocked out cold in the first round. Prior to that he was outclassed by a far superior opponent. However, Amedovski only mustered up 6 significant strikes that bout. Averaging less than 1 significant strike per minute.

Hu Yaozong has been in turmoil since stepping into the UFC as well. However, at age 26 this dude has his whole life ahead of him. Standing 5 inches taller than his opponent and with a background in Muay Thay this can truly be a favorable fight for Yaozong; if he can keep it standing up. Yaozong is active on the feet landing 4.43 significant strikes per minute. I can’t fight the feeling that the UFC is trying to put this guy over.

Tonight both of these men get their third and possibly final chance to make the cut.

Preston’s Best Bet: Hu Yaozong ML (+110)
