Main Card

Alexey Kunchenko -495 vs Thiago Alves +370

At one time, Thiago Alves, 27-12, dominated non-UFC fighters like Alexey Kunchenko. Kunchenko, 18-0, isn’t your typical non-UFC fighter, though. Like most Russian MMA fighters, Kunchenko can wrestle, but he’s not one-dimensional. He’s got a great stand up that employs both Muay Thai kicks as well as traditional boxing. Kunchenko can shift from a wide-open kickboxing stance to a traditional left foot forward boxing stance. He should beat Alves on Saturday.

UFC Fight Night 136 Pick: Alexey Kunchenko

#12 Andrei Arlovski +110 vs #14 Shamil Abdurakhimov -130

UFC ranks Arlovski, 27-16, higher than Abdurakhimov, 18-4, even though Tai Tuivasa beat Arlovski at UFC 225 in June. Arlovski’s a decent grappler. That should help if the fight goes to the ground.Abdurakhimov’s boxing skills are decent. He’s also a good wrestler. Wrestling’s different than grappling, which, although the underdog, should give the edge to Arlovski.UFC Fight Night 136 Pick: Andrei Arlovski

#4 Jan Blachowicz -110 vs Nikita Krylov -110

UFC handicappers can’t choose between ranked Jan Blachowicz, 21-7, and Nikita Krylov. Blachowicz lands 3.79 strikes per minute. He’s only accurate around 50% of the time with his strikes. Krylov lands 6.55 significant strikes per minute.Going back to 2017, Blachowicz has won 3 straight, including beating Devin Clark via Round 2 submission at UFC Fight Night on Oct. 21. UFC awarded Blachowicz Performance of the Night for submitting Clark.Nikita Krylov, 24-5, hasn’t fought in UFC since 2016. That shouldn’t matter because he’s got incredible knockout power to go along with a good ground game. Krylov knocked out his last couple of opponents, Emanuel Newton and Fabio Maldonado.The Ukranian fighter should do enough to beat Blachowicz on Sep. 15.UFC Fight Night 136 Pick: Nikita Krylov
