Partner Spotlight: UFC 152 Betting Picks
UFC 152 goes down tonight at the Air Canada Centre in Toronta, Canada. The card is headlined by light heavyweight title fight between reigning champion Jon Jones and the always dangerous Vitor Belfort. Here are our betting picks for the event.
Jon Jones vs Vitor Belfort: Vitor is always dangerous with his lightning fast and heavy hands but Jones is a horrible match up for him. Jones will close the distance when he wants, clinch and take Belfort to the ground with his patented trips. From the top position the champion will destroy his challenger with heavy elbows. Based on this scenario our pick is: Method of victory : Jones by KO, TKO 1.65
Cub Swanson vs Charles Oliveira: Both guys are top notch featherweight and we feel that the line should be closer to even. Swanson has tremendous punching power like we’ve seen in his last two fights. Oliveira has a ton of potential but he missed weight even on second attempt and that’s never good for you. Betting on Swanson at 2.77 seems like a good idea.
Igor Pokrajac vs Vinicius Magalhaes: ADCC 2011 winner Vinny Magalhaes is one of the best big grapplers in the world. As a grappler Vinny is very submission oriented that translates better to MMA than positional grappling style. In his last fight at M-1 Magalhaes showed his improved striking when he knocked out Russian Mikhail Zayats who is no joke on the feet. Pokrajac is riding a three fight win streak but we feel that Magalhaes is a difficult match up for the Croatian. Magalhaes at 2.38 is worth a bet.
