After last weekend’s mesmerising event, we are treated to another main card which is bound to produce fireworks.
The main event sees Uriah Hall take on the MMA legend, Anderson Silva. Many fans only know Hall for his unbelievable spinning heel kick in Season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter, but “Prime Time” is a middleweight that still has a lot to offer the division and he can show that through a knockout of Silva. Despite Silva’s unreal career and ability, the 45 year-old has not won a fight since 2017 and doesn’t look like changing that fortune anytime soon. I hope the veteran hangs up his gloves after this fight, because every MMA fan wants to remember the Brazilian at his best. Hall to win by KO/TKO is 6/4 with Bet365.
The Co-main event is occupied by featherweights Bryce Mitchell and Andre Fili. The former is likely to take this fight to the ground, whereas the latter will be looking for a stand-up fight, so it depends on who is able to control the tempo early on. I think Mitchell will make it two from two this year, having the disadvantage in the reach will mean Mitchell will constantly be In the pocket and gaining the upper hand in the clinch and on the ground. I’m going to take a confident tip on Mitchell to win by KO/TKO or submission, which is at 15/8 with Bet365.
Heavyweights Maurice Green and Greg Hardy square-off in what will be a quick fight. The former American Football star has finally found his groove in the octagon and I’m confident he will add to his recent win against Yorgan De Castro. Maurice Green will hopefully bring the fight to Hardy, which could see the two slug it out, but I reckon Hardy will KO his counterpart, which is at 8/11.
The main card is kicked off by Bobby Green and Thiago Moises. The Lightweights provide what looks to be the closest fight of the main card, where it could go either way. Despite Green being a heavy favourite, Moises made light work of a tough opponent, in the form of Michael Johnson. I think the Brazilian will control the fight on the ground and take a decision victory. Green Meanwhile is on a 2-fight win streak, having fought in both August and September, so I believe a third fight in as many months will prove to show during this bout. Moises is 5/2 to win outright.
