Mark your calendars because come December 3rd, some epic fighting action is going to go down. The highly anticipated The Ultimate Fighter 24 Finale is almost here as we inch closer to it every day. Fans of the sport and also punters who try their best to make some bank by placing bets on these fights are certainly looking forward to fight night.
In this article, we will focus on the fight between Gray Maynard and Ryan Hall. Maynard is also known as The Bully, and that name really needs no explaining if you ask us. He has eleven pounds over his opponent as he weighs in at 155 lbs and Ryan Hall weighs 144 lbs. However, Maynard is two inches shorter than the 5 foot 10 Ryan Hall and is also six years older at 37.
Experts and bookies however still seem to heavily favor Maynard despite the fact that he is much older than Hall. They bookies have Maynard at 90% chances of emerging victorious. Maynard’s cage rank is 2,005 while Ryan Hall is ranked at 1,621 which is substantially better, but at over one and a half thousand ranks out, experts say the ranking really is not an accurate estimation of the pragmatic reality and current form and mindset of the two fighters.
Despite the fact that he is the underdog, Hall does have several advantages over Maynard. He has significantly heavier hands, is a much better grappler and will be looking to take the fight to the ground as soon as possible, and also has a better reach provided he is two inches taller than Maynard.
However, Maynard is heavier, more experienced and technically blessed. It seems like he may be a little too much for Hall to handle.Author : Rory McGregor
