SMUGGLING DUDS UFC 208 GAMBLING GUIDE!
Here we are again, time to make some more money and spend some on your favourite underwear brand!
Holly Holm vs. Germaine de Randamie (FW)
‘The Irony Lady’ is one seriously imposing figure in the women’s featherweight division and put on a clinic in her last outing, but the bottom line is the opponents she’s beaten in the UFC haven’t been that good. Mix this in with the fact Holly Holm really needs to get back to winning ways, to make another title run, should result in Holm playing it mega safe and getting the judges nod. We almost went with this outcome but our gut instinct tells us Holm's best days have been and gone in the UFC. We expect the former champ to play too safe and lose.
PREDICTION: De Randamie
Anderson Silva vs. Derek Brunson (MW)
Brunson was tearing through the middleweight division before getting stopped in his last outing, so this is a big risk for the ‘The Spider’, a really big risk. Silva wants to end his legacy with a victory and Brunson will be out to prove that his defeat in Australia was just a bad night at the office….BUT…..we think the MMA legend comes out on top and possibly announce his retirement.
Ronaldo Souza vs. Tim Boetsch (MW)
Never underestimate Tim Boetsch. Trust us. We’ve had many accumulator come crashing down at the hands of ‘The Barbarian’. Can he beat one of the best fighters in the middleweight division right now? If he can the MMA world will go crazy that's for sure. Souza however, will take him down early doors and get the sub.
Glover Teixeira vs. Jared Cannonier (LHW)
Teixara had his lights put against Anthony Johnson but most people get their lights put out by Anthony Johnson. Cannonier isn’t Anthony Johnson. As a result, expect to see Teixeira back to winning ways.
Dustin Poirier vs. Jim Miller (LW)
Make sure you tune in for this one as we have a feeling this could be the fight of the night, producing some awesome fireworks.
Randy Brown vs. George Sullivan (WW)
Tough one to call. We’ll say Brown wins on the night.
Wilson Reis vs. Ulka Sasaki (FLY)
Seasoned veteran Reis should dominate this one and grind out the win. Don’t be surprised if he slips in a cheeky neck crank though.
Nik Lentz vs. Islam Makhachev (LW)
Russian Makhachev is no push over but we just can’t see him doing enough to beat Lentz.
Ian McCall vs. Jarred Brooks (FLY)
We thought we had finally got two Smuggling Duds Team Members against one another but this time it was Neil Seery to pull-out due to personal circumstances. Jarred Brooks now gets a shot at short notice stardom, and you know what? This could bad news for McCall. However, McCall might capitalise on Brooks' UFC jitters and steal the win.
Luis Henrique vs. Marcin Tybura (HW)
Someone is hitting the canvas here. It’s just a matter of who and when.
Ryan LaFlare vs. Roan Carneiro (WW)
LaFlare will secure another decision victory. This might be the fight where you have a toilet break or make yourself a snack!
Phillipe Nover vs. Rick Glenn (FW)
Former TUF finalist nd ROC champ Nover has to win or else he’ll be cut from the UFC once again. Can he do it? Probably not unfortunately.
