Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs Ciryl Gane Odds & Prediction

FighterOdds
Jairzinho Rozenstruik+205
Ciryl Gane-265

It didn’t take long for Jairzinho “Bigi Boy” Rozenstruik (+205) to climb the heavyweight rankings, getting a No. 1 contender fight in his fifth appearance. A win here puts him back on track for another opportunity. Meanwhile, Ciryl “Bon Gamin” Gane (-265) hopes that a victory in this bout will land him a fight with a top-five heavyweight in his next endeavor.


Rozenstruik: Need to Knows
  • Rozenstruik was a top-level kickboxer prior to and during the early stages of his MMA career before making the full-time switch in late 2017. In his MMA career, he is 11-1 with 10 knockout wins; his lone defeat came in the same manner.
  • He has outstruck five of his six UFC opponents and averages 4.04 significant strikes per minute, which is impressive for a heavyweight. Don’t expect the kickboxer to go for a takedown as he has secured a total of zero takedowns in the Octagon.
  • Bigi Boy is a very active fighter, throwing plenty of feints, and does a good job cutting off the cage and not giving his foes much room to work. He’s an intelligent fighter, chipping away with kicks at long range, and will let his hands fly when he’s pressured. If he lands, it’s bad news as he has tremendous power.
  • At times, he can be too reliant on kicks and power hooks, which leaves him open to straight punches and jabs that can add up.
  • Rozenstruik’s last three fights were Alistair Overeem (win – knockout), Francis Ngannou (loss – knockout) and Junior dos Santos (win – knockout).


Gane: Need to Knows
  • After winning his first three fights in the TKO organization, all by stoppage, the UFC signed Gane, who fights out of the MMA Factory that Francis Ngannou trained out of as well. With an equal number of knockouts and submissions, he is a threat anywhere the fight goes.
  • Bon Gamin has outclassed his four opponents in the UFC, averaging 5.61 significant strikes while only absorbing 1.95, and he has made his opponents miss 73 percent of their strike attempts. He averages 1.08 takedowns per 15 minutes but all three of his takedowns came in one bout.
  • He moves incredibly well for a heavyweight – he looks like a light heavyweight or even a middleweight with his speed and movement. Gane works extremely well behind his jab but also uses long kicks to keep his opponents at bay.
  • His patience is important too in the heavyweight division as he doesn’t just rush into a firefight, using his speed to land and get out of danger quickly.
  • Gane’s last three fights were Don’Tale Mayes (win – submission), Tanner Boser (win – unanimous decision) and Junior dos Santos (win – knockout).

Prediction: Ciryl Gane (-265) via submission

Nikita Krylov vs Magomed Ankalaev Odds & Prediction

FighterOdds
Nikita Krylov+300
Magomed Ankalaev-400

Aiming to extend his five-fight winning streak, Magomed Ankalaev (-400) is the biggest favorite on the card to do so. Hoping to cash as a big underdog is Nikita “The Miner” Krylov (+300), who has been on a win-one, lose-one streak over his last five bouts, coming off a decision win last March.


Krylov: Need to Knows
  • Following a two-year hiatus from the Octagon during which he won four fights in a row, Krylov has split his last four bouts back in the UFC, losing to top-end guys Glover Teixeira and champion Jan Blachowicz while beating mid-range guys Ovince St. Preux and Johnny Walker.
  • The Miner shines in grueling fights, grinding his opponents against the cage and on the floor if he secures the takedown. Only two of his 34 pro fights have gone the distance as his pace typically drains his opponent.
  • On the feet, he does a good job throwing long straight punches that he uses to lumber forward and close the distance. If he decides to strike, he does his best work at distance with kicks. When he exchanges hands, he tends to absorb damage.
  • Krylov’s last three fights were Ovince St. Preux (win – submission), Glover Teixeira (loss – split decision) and Johnny Walker (win – unanimous decision).


Ankalaev: Need to Knows
  • If not for a last-second submission loss to Paul Craig, Ankalaev would be carrying a 15-0 record, not 14-1. Nine of his 14 wins have been by knockout, including four of his five UFC wins.
  • He is an outstanding striker, averaging 3.58 significant strikes per minute while only absorbing 1.36. Ankalaev does stand a little flat-footed but has incredible kicks, and he uses his head and eyes very well to hide where his kick is going.
  • He does a great job with his footwork to back his opponents against the cage but is patient when his foes are trapped, picking his shots or looking to counter heavily. Ankalaev’s feints are incredible and he capitalizes well on his reads.
  • Ankalaev’s last three fights were Dalcha Lungiambula (win – knockout), Ion Cutelaba (win – knockout) and Ion Cutelaba (win – knockout).

Prediction: Magomed Ankalaev (-400) via knockout

Montana De La Rosa vs Mayra Bueno Silva Odds & Prediction

FighterOdds
Montana De La Rosa+115
Mayra Bueno Silva-145

Mayra “Sheetara” Bueno Silva (-145) looks to win her second fight in a row after suffering her first professional loss in March of last year. Meanwhile, Montana De La Rosa (+115) hopes to avoid a second straight setback coming off a unanimous-decision loss in September.


De La Rosa: Need to Knows
  • After turning 26 last week, this will be De La Rosa’s 18th pro fight and her evolution continues each time she enters the Octagon. Eight of her 11 pro wins have been submissions, while four of her six losses were decisions.
  • De La Rosa was predominantly a grappler, evident in her submission victories, but more recently her striking skills have greatly improved. She has a good straight jab and her counter hooks tend to have repeated success.
  • She does tend to lack a little bit of innovation, sticking too tightly to a game plan even if she’s not finding success. However, her grit and determination make her a threat for the duration of the bout and if she can get in a grappling exchange, she’s dangerous on the floor.
  • 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).


Silva: Need to Knows
  • Silva suffered a knee injury in her UFC debut, a fight she won via first-round submission. The injury sidelined her for nearly 18 months and she suffered a loss in her return. Six of her seven pro wins have been stoppages, with five submissions and one knockout.
  • Sheetera has really good leg kicks and she throws them early and often. However, she has a really bad tendency to get in boxing range and not throw a strike, which often leads to her eating heavy punches.
  • When her opponents pressure her, she will grab a Thai clinch and look for strong knees up the middle. She is most dangerous on the floor, though, especially off of her back where she frequently seeks armbar or triangle choke submissions.
  • Bueno Silva’s last three fights were Gillian Robertson (win – submission), Maryna Moroz (loss – unanimous decision) and Mara Romero Borella (win – submission).

Prediction: Montana De La Rosa (+115) via decision

Pedro Munhoz vs Jimmie Rivera Odds & Prediction

FighterOdds
Pedro Munhoz+125
Jimmie Rivera-155

After this fight was postponed two weeks ago on UFC 258, it has been rescheduled for this card. Pedro “The Young Punisher” Munhoz (+125) has dropped his last two fights following a three-fight winning streak that included a victory over former champion Cody Garbrandt. Jimmie “El Terror” Rivera (-155) snapped his 2019 two-fight losing skid last summer when he beat Cody Stamann by decision. This is a rematch from 2015 when Rivera earned a split-decision win.


Munhoz: Need to Knows
  • Munhoz has climbed to near the top of the bantamweight division twice but narrow decision losses stopped him in his tracks. All five of his pro losses have been by decision while 13 of 18 wins have been stoppages, five by knockout and eight by submission.
  • Although the Young Punisher averages 0.76 takedowns per 15 minutes, he’s landed just one over his last seven fights. He is an uptempo fighter, averaging 5.53 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 6.03.
  • He tends to touch his opponents with a jab but then quickly follows with powerful hooks, typically headhunting. Munhoz looks to cut down the cage, be the bully and get into a brawl. But with this approach, he can be beaten to the punch with quick straight punches.
  • Munhoz’s last three fights were Cody Garbrandt (win – knockout), Aljamain Sterling (loss – unanimous decision) and Frankie Edgar (loss – split decision).


Rivera: Need to Knows
  • Like Munhoz, Rivera also has climbed the bantamweight ranks but has hit a wall, losing to former title challenger Marlon Moraes, Aljamain Sterling and the current champ, Petr Yan. However, in the Yan fight, Rivera did land more significant strikes (73-56).
  • El Terror averages 0.86 takedowns per 15 minutes but has secured just two over his last five fights. He is a more patient fighter than Munhoz, averaging 3.99 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.61.
  • Rivera is quite fast, typically chipping away with powerful leg kicks while looking to draw an attack out of his opponents so he can counter heavily. At times, he can get a little excited and can be goaded into a brawl. That can be a dangerous game to play but he’s only been knocked out once.
  • Rivera’s last three fights were Aljamain Sterling (loss – unanimous decision), Petr Yan (loss – unanimous decision) and Cody Stamann (win – unanimous decision).

Prediction: Jimmie Rivera (-155) via decision

Angela Hill vs Ashley Yoder Odds & Prediction

FighterOdds
Angela Hill-400
Ashley Yoder+300

Following back-to-back controversial split-decision losses, Angela “Overkill” Hill (-400) looks to return to the win column for the first time in just over a year. Ashley “Spider Monkey” Yoder (+300) was in a similar situation with two losses in a row before she earned a win last November. Hill earned a unanimous-decision win over Yoder in 2017.


Hill: Need to Knows
  • Hill fought five times from September 2019 to September 2020, going 3-2 over that span, though the two losses easily could have been scored in her favor. Of her 21 pro fights, 14 have been decisions, while she has five knockout wins and two submission losses.
  • Overkill has a great output and engages in fun fights. She averages 5.70 significant strikes per minute while also absorbing 5.16. She is very fast and has really good footwork. In the past, she was a little too cautious but she has evolved in that area.
  • She does a good job closing distance and getting into boxing range where she puts together crisp combinations while also slipping punches fairly well. At times she will telegraph her powerful right hand, but if she lands she typically does damage.
  • Hill’s last three fights were Loma Lookboonmee (win – unanimous decision), Claudia Gadelha (loss – split decision) and Michelle Waterson (loss – split decision).


Yoder: Need to Knows
  • Yoder had a rough start in the UFC, dropping three in a row, including a loss to Hill, but has won three of her last five since. All six of her pro losses have been decisions while half of her eight wins have been by submission.
  • Spider Monkey is a little wild with her striking, overextending and lunging forward with straight, pushing punches. That said, her bills are paid with her great grappling skills; she’s creative and aggressive in searching for submissions.
  • Yoder’s last three fights were Randa Markos (loss – split decision), Livinha Souza (loss – unanimous decision) and Miranda Granger (win – unanimous decision).

Prediction: Angela Hill (-400) via knockout

Alex Caceres vs Kevin Croom Odds & Prediction

FighterOdds
Alex Caceres-210
Kevin Croom+170

Alex “Bruce LeeRoy” Caceres (-210) is having a bit of a resurgence of late, winning three in a row, his best stretch since he had four wins and a no contest from 2012 to 2014. His opponent, Kevin “The Hard-Hitting Hillbilly” Croom (+170), had his UFC debut victory overturned after he tested positive for marijuana, otherwise he’d be on a four-fight winning streak.


Caceres: Need to Knows
  • A veteran of the Octagon, this will be his 24th UFC bout and it is crazy that this man is still only 32 years old. In his 23 previous bouts in the organization, he’s gone 12-10 with one no contest.
  • Caceres is a striker, averaging 4.15 significant strikes per minute while only absorbing 2.91 and making his opponents miss 65 percent of their strikes. However, he gets in trouble when it comes to grappling, with seven of his 12 pro losses coming by submission.
  • On the feet, Bruce LeeRoy has a good jab and accurate straight counters but at times can be too hesitant, which hurts him on the scorecard with the lack of output.
  • Caceres’ last three fights were Steven Peterson (win – unanimous decision), Chase Hooper (win – unanimous decision) and Austin Springer (win – submission).  


Croom: Need to Knows
  • Croom has come out of a rough patch in which he lost seven of 11 fights to find himself unbeaten in his last four. Of his 21 pro wins, 16 have been stoppages with six knockouts and 10 submissions.
  • He throws a lot of feints and strikes, seemingly always in motion, which he uses to find a time to level change and look for a takedown. However, with this high pace, he tends to leave a lot of openings to be countered, though his wild strikes can catch his opponents off guard.
  • Croom’s last three fights were Adil Benjilany (win – split decision), Anderson Hutchinson (win – unanimous decision) and Roosevelt Roberts (no contest).

Prediction: Kevin Croom (+170) via decision
