Jack Hermansson vs Marvin Vettori Betting Odds

FighterOdds
Jack Hermansson+110
Marvin Vettori-140

Hermansson (+110) has been nearly unstoppable since making his UFC debut in 2016, sporting a record of 8-3 with losses to Jared Cannonier, Thiago Santos and Cezar Ferreira. Conversely, it was a bit of a mixed bag for Vettori (-140) in the early stages of his career as he was 2-2-1 in his first five but has now rattled off three straight wins.


Hermansson: Need to Knows
  • Not only is “The Joker” winning at a high rate in the UFC but six of those eight wins are finishes. Of his 21 pro wins, 17 are finishes, 11 by knockout and six by submission.
  • Hermansson is an aggressive fighter, averaging 5.08 significant strikes per minute while absorbing just 2.52. He also shoots for plenty of takedowns with 2.19 takedowns per 15 minutes.
  • He is a straightforward fighter, closing the distance quickly and looking to get into a grappling exchange. Hermansson has a good jab and mixes in a low leg kick nicely as well. He also throws unorthodox strikes such as lead uppercuts that can catch his opponents off balance.
  • The Joker has had instances when he has tired quickly, especially in the first round of the Cannonier fight. When that happens, he tends to shoot from long distances, which are easily stuffed.
  • Hermansson’s last three fights were Jacare Souza (win – unanimous decision), Jared Cannonier (loss – knockout) and Kelvin Gastelum (win – submission).


Vettori: Need to Knows
  • Also an aggressive fighter, “The Italian Dream” wastes no time getting in the face of his opponents to exchange hands. He averages 4.33 significant strikes while absorbing just 2.76 and makes his opponents miss 67 percent of their strikes.
  • Of Vettori’s 15 pro wins, 11 have been finishes, two by knockout and nine by submission. His four pro losses have all come by decision. Although he likes to exchange hands, he also averages 1.67 takedowns per 15 minutes.
  • He has fantastic head movement and footwork that allows him to avoid damage, but also enables him to close distance to find areas to land his hands. Vettori works well behind his jab and follows up nicely with his straight left.
  • On the floor, he’s very strong and explosive, which helps him scramble and reverse position. If he’s on top, he weighs heavy as he batters up with ground and pound en route to setting up a submission.
  • Vettori’s last three fights were Cezar Ferreira (win – unanimous decision), Andrew Sanchez (win – unanimous decision) and Karl Roberson (win – submission).

Prediction: Marvin Vettori (-140) via submission

Ovince Saint Preux vs Jamahal Hill Betting Odds

FighterOdds
Ovince Saint Preux +150
Jamahal Hill-185

Jamahal “Sweet Dreams” Hill (-185) looks to keep his perfect record intact as he makes his third walk to the Octagon in 2020, coming off a win that was overturned to a no contest in May. Meanwhile, after a split-decision loss at heavyweight, Ovince “OSP” Saint Preux (+150) returned to light heavyweight in September, scoring a second-round knockout over Alonzo Menifield.


Saint Preux: Need to Knows
  • OSP made his UFC debut in 2013 and this will be his 23rd fight in the promotion and 40th pro fight overall. Of his 25 pro wins, 20 have been finishes, 12 by knockout and eight by submission.
  • He is a long light heavyweight and he uses his kicks well to maintain distance. OSP doesn’t use a ton of extra movement, standing relatively flat-footed as he throws his long jabs and kicks to score points.
  • Saint Preux is also very strong, which is apparent when he scores a Von Flue choke, which is now commonly referred to as a Saint Preux choke since he has won with that several times.
  • Saint Preux’s last three fights were Michal Oleksiejczuk (win – submission), Ben Rothwell (loss – split decision) and Alonzo Menifield (win – knockout).


Hill: Need to Knows
  • Sweet Dreams has completely dismantled his first three opponents in the UFC, landing 208 significant strikes while only absorbing 74. Two of those three wins were by knockout.
  • He has good straight, accurate punches. Hill typically allows his opponents to close the distance as he looks to counter heavily. When his foes engage, he has a good Thai clinch with good knees up the middle.
  • Takedowns could be an issue for Hill in this fight. He was taken to the floor six times when he fought Darko Stosic, though he did a good job getting back to his feet. OSP, though, is a much larger and stronger man than Stosic.
  • Hill’s last three fights were Alexander Poppeck (win – knockout), Darko Stosic (win – unanimous decision) and Klidson Abreu (no contest).

Prediction: Ovince Saint Preux (+150) via decision

Gabriel Benitez vs Justin Jaynes Betting Odds

FighterOdds
Gabriel Benitez-225
Justin Jaynes+175

One of these two fighters will return to the win column after this bout. Gabriel “Moggly” Benitez (-225) is in search of his first win since May 2018, staring down a two-fight losing streak heading into this fight. Meanwhile, Justin “Guitar Hero” Jaynes saw his five-fight winning streak snapped in August when he lost to Gavin Tucker.


Benitez: Need to Knows
  • Benitez is facing his first losing streak in the Octagon after going 5-2 through his first seven bouts, with three of those wins being finishes. Of his 21 pro wins, 17 have been finishes, with seven knockouts and 10 submissions.
  • The southpaw is predominantly a striker with just 0.18 takedowns per 15 minutes. He averages 4.14 significant strikes per minute but only lands 38 percent of those attempts while absorbing 3.16 and making his foes miss 71 percent.
  • Moggly has outstanding kicks, though at times he doesn’t set them up. He also really loads up on those strikes, which can make them easy to avoid. Benitez moves like a boxer, keeping his hands high and his chin down, and works behind a jab well. 
  • At times, Benitez is a little too patient for my liking. I think if he put the pedal down a little more, he would have more success. That said, his fundamentals are so clean that it seems he doesn’t want to sacrifice that by overextending.
  • Benitez’s last three fights were Humberto Bandenay (win – knockout), Sodiq Yusuff (loss – knockout) and Omar Morales (loss – unanimous decision).


Jaynes: Need to Knows
  • Jaynes got his UFC opportunity on late notice in June when he stepped up to fight Frank Camacho and scored a first-minute knockout. But he was submitted in his next fight by Gavin Tucker.
  • The orthodox fighter is a bull in the cage, always marching forward looking to close distance and land his heavy hands. Of his 16 pro wins, 13 have been finishes, including eight knockouts and five submissions.
  • The Guitar Hero doesn’t have a ton of knowledge of his range, typically loading up a hook while moving toward his opponent looking for the one-punch knockout. 
  • With his power, I’d like to see him fire strikes when his opponents pressure him because he typically just shells up and absorbs damage before rushing forward to retaliate. Additionally, he tends to keep his hands high, which leaves his body open to strikes.
  • Jaynes’ last three fights were James Warfield (win – knockout), Frank Camacho (win – knockout) and Gavin Tucker (loss – submission).

Prediction: Gabriel Benitez (-225) via submission

Montana De La Rosa vs Taila Santos Betting Odds

FighterOdds
Montana De La Rosa+180
Taila Santos-230

After suffering her first pro loss in her UFC debut, Taila Santos (-230) rebounded with a win over Molly McCann in July and is now searching for her first UFC winning streak. As for Montana De La Rosa (+180), she is on a win-one, lose-one streak over her last four fights, most recently coming off a decision loss to Viviane Araujo in September.


De La Rosa: Need to Knows
  • After three submissions in a row to start her UFC career, De La Rosa has gone 1-2 in her last three fights, which all went the distance.
  • De La Rosa has been improving on her striking each time she enters the cage, though she’s still searching for her first knockout. She uses a good jab when her foes pressure her and she now looks for a counter left hook as well.
  • She often strikes to defend rather than striking on offense, showing perhaps a slight lack of confidence. That said, I do like it when she throws a flurry of punches that she uses to close distance and get into a grappling exchange.
  • De La Rosa’s last three fights were Andrea Lee (loss – unanimous decision), Mara Romero Borella (win – unanimous decision) and Viviane Araujo (loss – unanimous decision).


Santos: Need to Knows
  • That aforementioned loss for Santos was a close split decision and ended a streak of 15 straight wins to open her career. Of her 16 pro wins, 12 have been finishes, 10 by knockout and two by submission.
  • Like many Brazilian fighters, she has really good kicks that often solicit an attack by her opponents that she looks to counter heavily with a punch. Santos is an intimidating fighter, always inching forward looking to get into a brawl.
  • When Santos goes on the attack, she’s aggressive with knees, kicks and basically the kitchen sink in trying to put her foe away.
  • Santos’ last three fights were Estefani Almeida (win – unanimous decision), Mara Romero Borella (loss – split decision) and Molly McCann (win – unanimous decision).

Prediction: Taila Santos (-230) via decision

Roman Dolidze vs John Allan Betting Odds

FighterOdds
Roman Dolidze-210
John Allan+170

Following a successful UFC debut in July, Roman Dolidze (-210) looks to make it two in a row in his new promotion and remain undefeated. On the other side, John “The Hunter” Allan (+170) returns to the Octagon for the first time in over a year after serving a suspension for a banned substance.


Dolidze: Need to Knows
  • Not only is Dolidze looking to remain perfect with his record, but he looks to also continue his record of finishing all of his opponents. He has seven wins, all inside the distance, with four knockouts and three submissions.
  • He switches stances effectively and he’s fairly patient, picking away with kicks at long range while trying to draw an attack out of his opponent. Dolidze has very good footwork for such a big man, floating out of danger while being able to attack aggressively as well.
  • Dolidze’s last three fights were Eder de Souza (win – knockout), Michal Pasternak (win – knockout) and Khadis Ibragimov (win – knockout).


Allan: Need to Knows
  • Allan had an appearance on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series Brazil but lost via second-round submission. He still got a UFC appearance, which he won, but as mentioned earlier he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug.
  • The Hunter is a patient fighter who will hop into the pocket, throw a one-two and then back out to chip away with kicks from afar. He has good power when he lets his hands go, but he tends to load up and he can be hit with fast straight hands. He did land four takedowns in his no contest vs Mike Rodriguez, averaging 2.54 takedowns per 15 minutes.
  • Allan’s last three fights were Vinicius Moreira Castro (loss – submission), Alexandre Silva (win – knockout) and Mike Rodriguez (no contest).

Prediction: Roman Dolidze (-210) via submission

Nate Landwehr vs Movsar Evloev Betting Odds

FighterOdds
Nate Landwehr+450
Movsar Evloev-700

Yet another fighter with a perfect record is putting it on the line as Movsar Evloev (-700) eyes his fourth win in the Octagon, which would extend his 13-fight winning streak. Meanwhile, fresh off his first win in the UFC, Nate “The Train” Landwehr (+450) seeks back-to-back victories after losing his UFC debut in January.


Landwehr: Need to Knows
  • The Train had been on a seven-fight winning streak when he got his opportunity in the UFC but was knocked out in his debut. When he returned in May, he showed why he got a UFC contract. Of his 14 pro wins, eight have been finishes, each by knockout.
  • Landwehr is an aggressive fighter, looking to get in a phone booth and exchange hands. He doesn’t exactly like taking a step backward, rather meeting his opponents’ forward pressure with strikes. The Train has decent takedown defense but has been brought down in each of his UFC fights.
  • Evidence of his aggression, he averages 6.89 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 7.22.
  • Landwehr’s last three fights were Viktor Kolesnik (win – unanimous decision), Herbert Burns (loss – knockout) and Darren Elkins (win – unanimous decision).


Evloev: Need to Knows
  • Evloev hasn’t been in a rush through three fights in the Octagon, going to the judges’ scorecards each time. In fact, six of his 13 pro wins have gone the distance.
  • He scored nine takedowns over his first two UFC bouts, but had none in his most recent win in July, though he was dragged to the floor six times. Evloev is explosive, strong and creative on the floor, which helps him return to the feet after being taken down.
  • His striking is crisp, with a snappy lead jab, and he has a sneaky powerful right hand behind it. He also has outstanding conditioning that allows him to push the pace right until the end of the bout.
  • Evloev’s last three fights were Seung Woo Choi (win – unanimous decision), Enrique Barzola (win – unanimous decision) and Mike Grundy (win – unanimous decision).

Prediction: Movsar Evloev (-700) via decision
