The UFC is loaded up with a 13-fight card that kicks off tonight at 5 PM CT in Houston, Texas. Headlined by two heavyweight titans with Derrick Lewis vs. Cyril Gane.
Manel Kape (15-6) makes the walk against Ode Osbourne (9-3-0) (1 NC). Kape has struggled in his last few fights in the UFC. Osbourne a DWCS winner in Season 3 has all the tools necessary to make a run in the flyweight division. Osbourne will have a 2″ height advantage and a standing reach advantage of 5″ as well.
When you look into the context of both fighters; Osbourne is landing more strikes per minute with a higher accuracy, and taking less damage. Kape missed the weight cut which is surprising because Osbourne has fought at a higher weight than flyweight in the past and made the weight cut easily. I believe this will be an exceptional fight and not necessarily a long fight.
Preston’s Best Bet: Ode Osbourne ML (+159)
