Venue switching, the speaking, and weigh-ins are done. It is time for UFC 232’s 13-scheduled bouts to occur. On Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California, the UFC will try to clean up a messy week with what could be the best show of this year.
Here are my BOLD predictions, odds and DraftKings choices for UFC 232:
Matchup Weight Class Odds DraftKings Salary Prediction DraftKings Pick?
Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson Light Heavyweight Championship Jones -278, Gustafsson +200 Jones $9100, Gustafsson $7100 Jones by TKO Jones
(c) Cris Cyborg vs. Amanda Nunes Women’s Featherweight Championship Cyborg -303, Nunes +230 Cyborg $9200, Nunes $7000 Cyborg by TKO Cyborg
Amanda Nunes is a superb champion at 135 lbs, but the size and strength advantage will be heavily in Cyborg’s favor at the historic co-main event. The winner has every right to call herself the best female mixed martial artist of all time.
Nunes’ only chance would be to try to drag this bout out into the tournament rounds in hopes of seeing Cyborg tire.
I don’t like Nunes’ chances to win outright, and that I love Cyborg’s dream potential. She comes into the bout with an 85-percent end rate and she’s always busy with takedowns and important strikes. Cyborg is the safest bet and draft option you can make.
