UFC-MMA Saturday October 19th 2013: The odds and our tips
Gonzaga v Jordan head to head odds
There’s a great deal in store for UFC 166, including the monumental clash between Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez. Look out for Daniel Cormier as he tries to put some hurt on big Roy Nelson, too, but those are just the fights catching the headlines for UFC 166: there’s plenty more on offer besides.
Gabriel Gonzaga against Shawn Jordan, for instance. This will be a stern test for Gonzaga, as Shawn Jordan is a real athlete who’s the favourite for a reason. That reason is most likely how hard he will be for Gonzaga to beat: he’s got a really powerful striking game, he moves well, and his takedown defence has been improving quickly. That makes him a daunting prospect for anyone, and when you throw in that he might be fitter than Gonzaga, too, then he’s left with a mountain to climb. We’ll be watching to see how he tackles this one...
Next up is Darrell Montague’s long-awaited UFC debut, against John Dodson. Montague has made a good reputation for himself before he got the call-up, and he’s a good Flyweight. Expect to see him move well, work hard and to take the fight to Dodson. He’s a bet if you fancy him to open his UFC account with an upset. Don’t necessarily expect to see him win his debut fight, though, if only because of Dodson’s much greater experience in the UFC (accumulated against other elite Flyweights). Then there’s Dodson’s very powerful hands to worry about, too: Dodson is if you’re looking to back him. But we love to watch a debut, and it could be that it’s Montague’s night to make a name for himself and start blazing a trail towards a title shot!
And another thing we like to see is the women’s UFC fights getting their time in the spotlight. A great example is Sarah Kaufman vs Jessica Eye, a fight that promises to be a good one to watch, and an interesting one besides. Both these fighters have been around a little while, and Kaufman in particular has made a reputation for herself as a reliable performer. They have similar approaches: organised, with good solid striking and some effective grappling to keep things interesting. The bookies have Kaufmann as a favourite to win it, most likely behind strong punches that come in bunches. That’ll be what Eye has to overcome if she wants to impose herself on the fight, but if she can, then it could well be that her power makes the difference in this one: if she can really test Kaufman’s jaw then she might be a good bet at ...
