UFC 200 Betting Multi

UFC 200 MultiIt’s time for UFC 200 and despite the loss of Jon Jones this card is stacked from the very first fight. We preview five of the best bets to make up our UFC 200 multi.

Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunes

The last two women’s bantamweight title fights have resulted in huge upsets and unlikely new champions, and Amanda Nunes looks to continue that trend. Nunes is a KO specialist, a rarity in women’s MMA. She combines explosiveness and technique to hurt opponents early and has won 6 of her 7 Zuffa fights by KO. However her output tapers off considerably if she doesn’t force an early finish and she is easily dominated in the latter stages of a fight. It’s very hard to back someone in a five round fight with such consistently bad cardio, particularly when they are fighting an opponent as tough and determined as Tate.

Miesha Tate’s title win was just reward for a remarkable career competing at the pinnacle of women’s MMA. A high school wrestler, Tate has developed an excellent all round skill set that compliments her cerebral approach to fighting. She knows to beat Nunes, all she has to do is drag her into deep water and I expect her to weather the early storm and force a late stoppage.

Cain Velasquez vs Travis Browne

Velasquez is returning for the first time since losing his title in demoralizing fashion to Fabricio Werdum 20 months ago. A clearly compromised Velasquez was picked apart on the feet and eventually submitted in front of a capacity Mexico City crowd. Prior to that fight, he enjoyed a period of sustained dominance not usually seen in the heavyweight division. However a career of high level wrestling appears to have taken its toll, with injuries limiting him to one fight in the last 3 years.

Even if he’s at 100%, Travis Browne presents a unique and dangerous challenge.

At 6”7, Browne will have a massive reach advantage and is effective at using every inch of it. However he doesn’t like to keep a high pace and if Velasquez can close the distance it will severely limit his offence. I have faith that we are going to see at least a decent Cain Velasquez come fight night and even that will be enough to get his hand raised.

TJ Dillishaw vs Raphael Assuncao

Despite the emergence of exciting new talent to make the UFC’s bantamweight division one of the most interesting, there still a big gap between the two best. There’s Dominick Cruz and TJ Dillishaw, and then there’s the rest.

Assuncao owns a controversial decision win over Dillishaw in 2013, but since then injuries have seen his career plateau. In that time Dillishaw has won, defended and lost the title. TJ Dillishaw’s movement and wrestling will be too much and he should win a lopsided decision.

Sage Northcutt vs Enrique Marin

After being discovered on Dana White’s reality TV show ‘Looking for a Fight’, Sage Northcutt’s career was fast tracked to the bright lights of the UFC and he was being hailed as the lightweight division’s next big thing. A poor performance and a shock submission loss against Bryan Barberena slightly derailed the hype train. But at only 20 years of age, and with amazing physical gifts, I expect Northcutt to bounce back strong. Enrique Marin lost his first and only UFC fight against another debutante Erick Montano and I get the feeling he is brought in here to get Sage Northcutt another highlight reel win.

Gegard Mousasi vs Thiago Santos

The fact that Mousasi is on the untelevised prelims is testament to just how strong this card is. The Iranian born Mousasi is a former DREAM and STRIKEFORCE champion and, at only 30 years of age, has already amassed a staggering 38-6 record. While Mousasi is a brilliant technical striker, his opponent Santos is another of the division’s premier strikers. Santos is a dangerous Brazilian kickboxer riding a four fight UFC win streak. On the feet this will be a fascinating technical battle, Mousasi’s striking defence give him the slight advantage, but Santos can definitely win a kickboxing match. The x-factor is Gegard Mousasi’s elite ground game and he can rely on that if the stand-up battle is not going to plan.
