Brandon Thatch vs. Niko Price
Brandon Thatch is heavily favored when he comes up against Niko Price despite the fact that Niko Price is undefeated so far. However, we know that all good things come to an end and we are pretty positive that Niko’s stellar run and form is coming to its end as well. Niko who is also known as Rukus was actually supposed to fight Sabah Homasi, however, Homasi backed out for reasons unknown and undisclosed. A lot of people speculate that it could be an injury, but speculation is just speculation.
Thatch has a lot to prove given that his last three outings have ended in failures. He will be looking to make up for it and this is the perfect opportunity for him as he as a strong favorite and for good reason. However, if things don’t go the way he plans them to go, it could really break Thatch and his reputation and can blow a deadly punch to his confidence as well. His last three fights were against Gunnar Nelson, Benson Henderson and Siyar Bahadurazada and they were all able to get the better of him.
For Price too, this could be a make or break fight because this is his first time on the big stage. We would recommend a bet of Thatch to win via Technical Knock Out.
Tim Means vs Alex Oliveira
This fight is going to be difficult to call! Means and Oliveira both are coming into the fight with two consecutive victories each and full of confidence.
There will certainly be a personal aspect to the fight considering their recent Twitter spat. Both fighters are technically gifted and very evenly matched over all, but if we just HAD to put our money on someone, we would go with Oliveira who might be able to snuff out Means by submission.Author : Rory McGregor
