Derek Brunson (14-3) vs. Roan Carneiro (20-9) Middleweight Fight PredictionMMA Line: Brunson (-340) vs. Carneiro (+260) While Carneiro’s Jiu Jitsu could be troubling, Brunson (who is on a three-fight winning streak, including back-to-back KOs in his last two fights) is skilled enough to batter the hell out of Carneiro for a dominant win. MMA Picks: Brunson wins by KO within the first two rounds.
Cody Garbrandt (7-0) vs. Augusto Mendes (5-0) Bantamweight Fight PredictionMMA Line: Garbrandt vs. Mendes With both fighters undefeated so far, I am inclined to side slightly with the one with more fight experience, so Garbrandt get the nod from me. MMA Picks: Garbrandt outmatches Mendes’ grappling with his solid strikes, leading to a win for him and Team Alpha Male.
Dennis Bermudez (14-5) vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri (35-8-2) Featherweight Fight PredictionMMA Line: Bermudez (-340) vs. Kawajiri (+260) While Kawajiri’s experience is unquestionable, along with his renowned power jabs and solid wrestling skills; he is definitely going to have his work cut out for him in Bermudez who possess all the above skills plus solid athleticism and good kicking ability. MMA Picks: Bermudez and Kawajiri give us a wrestle-fest, with Bermudez eventually coming out on top with a decision win.
Chris Camozzi (22-10) vs. Joe Riggs (41-16) Middleweight Fight PredictionMMA Line: Camozzi (-260) vs. Riggs (+200) It’s not that Camozzi is a great fighter, it is just that Riggs stinks when it comes to facing good opponents. MMA Picks: Camozzi slugs his way to a KO win within the first two rounds.
James Krause vs. Shane CampbellMMA Line: Krause (-155) vs. Campbell (+125) Considering 14 of his victories have come via submission, it goes without saying that Krause has a very solid ground game. Campbell, meanwhile, is master at kickboxing, with a very lethal combo of knee kicks and power jabs. I like Krause a lot, but I have a feeling Campbell will avoid too many takedowns, which should eventually allow him to score enough aerial points for a win. MMA Picks: Campbell upsets Krause, winning via split decision.
