In the main event of the night, Fabricio Werdum defends his heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic. Werdum is 20-5-1 overall at 38 years old. He is 8-2 in the UFC overall, but in his current run starting in 2012, he is undefeated with 6 straight wins. Stipe Miocic is 14-2 overall and coincidentally also 8-2 in the UFC. He is 33 years old. Early in his career, Werdum was primarily known as a jiu jitsu guy, but in recent years he has become one of the best technical strikers in the heavyweight division. His fight against Travis Browne, where everyone expected he needed to get takedowns to win was particularly awesome as he completely dominated Browne in the striking and ended up taking a clear unanimous decision victory. For a heavyweight, he also showed he had the cardio to go 5 rounds. In his latest performance where he won the title against Cain Velasquez, he once again showed his cardio and striking, out-cardioing the cardio king in Velasquez. Stipe has also showed some very good striking, TKOing Andrei Arlovski in his latest outing and TKOing Mark Hunt in the fight before that. He also has the ability to go 5 rounds as he proved in his decision loss to Junior Dos Santos and again in the fight against Hunt. In this fight, we give a decent edge to Werdum. The striking is pretty close, but Werdum should have advantages in most other areas of the fight. Obviously Werdum is also heavily favoured by our model and the public money on Stipe makes betting Werdum very attractive. Werdum is the first leg of our parlay at 1.67 (-150) which is his current line at Bookmaker.eu.
The second leg of our two team parlay is John Lineker. Lineker takes on Rob Font in the opening bout of the preliminary card. Lineker is the #12 ranked UFC bantamweight and is well known for missing weight at flyweight. At 26 years old, he is already 26-7 overall and 7-2 in the Octagon. Rob Font is 12-1 overall and has won his first 2 UFC appearances. He is 28 years old and will be giving up home field advantage as he hails from North Reading, Masaschusetts. Facing Lineker in his third UFC fight is an extremely tall order for Font. Not only that, but Font has only fought once since July, 2014. Lineker is one of the hardest hitting and most aggressive guys in the UFC and he has repeatedly proven that with half his UFC wins coming by TKO. For a guy who has primarily fought at flyweight, that is extremely impressive. We don’t see Font being able to survive the onslaught that Lineker is sure to bring early and it will likely result in an early TKO win for Lineker. The line should be far steeper on Lineker, but since it’s not, he becomes the second leg of our free two team parlay. The bet is a 2 unit parlay on Fabricio Werdum over Stipe Miocic and John Lineker over Rob Font at 2.17 (+146) at Bookmaker.eu.
