Once Teammates Now They’re Opponents
UFC 258 is headlined by welterweight champ Kamaru Usman Vs Gilbert Burns. Usman now working with Coach Trevor Whitman and Lightweight Contender Justin Gaethje. Gilbert is down in Florida at Sanford MMA, which seems to have gathered a collective of top contenders.
One thing to look out for in this bout is the grappling exchanges. Burns is a highly decorated Jiu-Jitsu player but will this be enough to grapple with Usman? They already know the answer to that we will have to wait and find out tonight. My take is this fight mirrors the Usman Vs Covington fight and Usman comes out on top again. Betting with the Champ tonight
Back To The Future
The Future Maycee Barber makes her return. A super confident fighter suffered a terrible loss at the hands of Roxanne Modafferi she also tore her ACL and fought through the rest of the fight. This is now the first time we see Maycee as the higher-ranked fighter. Alexa Grasso is ranked 15th at the moment but she’s no slouch. Maycee isn’t going to be able to pin her up against the cage and tee off like in the past. I think we see a more complete fight that Maycee wins via TKO from ground and pound.
Bets To Place For UFC 258
Belal Muhammad Vs Dheigo Lima – Easiest bet on the card Belal is getting his hand raised.
Miranda Maverick Vs Gillian Robertson – I’m going with Maverick here, she was super impressive in her debut and I think she gets a win here
Brian Kelleher wins via TKO vs Ricky Simon, My dude is getting the dub on Saturday night. He told me he’d call in to Free Mouth Friday and spit some bars but that’s yet to be seen.
