UFC Fight Night Best Bets

Donald Cerrone (+120) v Niko Price (+150)

Here are keys to victory for Cerrone:

  • Use Niko's aggression against him
  • Make this an MMA fight; don't stick to one discipline
  • Don’t get drawn into a brawl

The UFC has been on fire with these violent, can't miss co-main events lately. I can understand why the perception is that Cerrone is going downhill because it's accurate. I’m just not ready to say Cerrone has completely fallen off the wagon quite yet.

Price, technically speaking, is not that great in any area of mixed martial arts. What Niko lacks in skill, he makes up for in grit and determination along with his willingness to absorb strikes to deliver his own punishing blows.

Cerrone cannot stand in front of Price willingly trading strikes or he's likely going to get knocked out. From his media, it appears he's been training slightly differently, looking to avoid absorbing strikes, and that will play in this bout.

He's the better striker, better in the clinch, and much better grappler on the mat. I have to side with Cerrone to win this bout especially these odds.

Cerrone survives an early scare rallying back taking this fight over, and winning by submission in Round 2.

How I lined this fight: Cerrone -100 (50%)
