シャードッグ I expect a good first round for dos Santos followed by a difficult second and ultimately a TKO in round three for “Big Ben.” The pick is Lewis by second-round KO. The pick is Blaydes by unanimous decision. Johnson wins by third-round TKO. Blachowicz by third-round TKO is the pick. The pick is Moroz by second-round submission. The pick is Dalby by unanimous decision. The pick is Taisumov by unanimous decision Perez wins by unanimous decision. Pejic wins by third-round TKO. The pick is Velickovic by second-round submission.
BEST VALUE: Ben Rothwell at +113. Essentially, this main event is a pick ’em fight. Who wins depends greatly on how far Junior dos Santos has truly fallen and how high Rothwell has truly risen.
LIVE DOG: Timothy Johnson at +145. Marcin Tybura is one of the few real heavyweight prospects out there, but matchmaker Joe Silva has given him a raw deal for his UFC debut.
SURE THING: Bojan Velickovic. There are a few tempting picks on this card, but none of them possess Velickovic’s general inexorability.
