The Last Samurai vs The Underdog Champion?
The betting odds favor the challenger, with Prochazka -220 and Teixeira +170. Many people may be surprised that champion Glover is a 2:1 underdog. Prochazka’s godly power, combined with Glover’s old chin, appears to be working in favor of this fresh and young fighter.
Prochazka’s 18 KO victories in the last 19 fights speak for themselves. Everything about him is unique, from his entrance to his fighting style. Glover, on the other hand, is an all-around fighter. His superior fight IQ, combined with his superior ground game, has earned him the title. The fighter who can dictate the pace and place will have a high chance of getting their hand raised.
This is one of the most unpredictable fights in championship history, and one mistake from one fighter ends the game for the other.
Glover has won his last three fights despite being a heavy underdog. He has defeated Father Time in ways that even bigger fighters have not.
Despite this, Jiri is a different beast altogether. His training with Henry would undoubtedly benefit his Takedown defense.
Predictions – Jiri Prochazka via TKO is our pick.
Dominant Valentina Schvchenko vs Surging Talia Santos
Valentina is one of the card’s heavy betting favorites. According to Vegas Insider. She is the -800 favorite whereas Santos is a +550 underdog. Both fighters have a Muay Thai background and have a strong ground game.
Talia Santos is confident that she will be able to ground Valentina and impose her will. In her previous four fights, she had also landed 11 takedowns.
Valentina, on the other hand, may decide to take the fight to the ground in order to demonstrate her dominance.
Valentina is currently one of the most complete martial artists. She never makes a mistake and attributes her success to the hard training camps
To make a point, we believe she’ll take this fight to the ground and dominate Santos there.
Predictions – Valentina Shevchenko via Decision is our pick.
Zhang Weili vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk for a title eliminator
Ladies and gentlemen, the fight of the year 2020 have come back, and the winner will be guaranteed a shot at the title. They last fought in March 2020, and Weili was declared the winner by a split decision after a five-round back-and-forth battle. Jedrzejczyk has not competed since then. Weili, on the other hand, lost her title in two consecutive bouts to Rose Namajunas.
Zhang Weili -175 is the favorite, while Joanna Jedrzejczyk +140 is a slight underdog in this race. Both fighters have excellent stand-up and might stand and bang as they did in their previous fight. Weili may have a stronger ground game, so it’ll be interesting to see if she decides to fight on the ground.
Weili is coming off back-to-back losses, while Joanna is making her return after a two-year hiatus. We’ve seen Weili struggle with losses, and this could be a roadblock for her. We still believe Weili will be too much for Joanna considering it is a 3 round fight time.
Predictions – Weili Zhang via Decision is our pick.
