With the UFC growing bigger week by week, ESPN coverage becoming more popular and a deal with Sky Sports in the near future a possibility, we though we’d bring you this weeks guest tip blog in the form of a UFC post. UFC 161 can be watched on ESPN this evening just after midnight, and our friend Spyros has two bets for you this evening.
Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley
I am really excited about this match up. Both are great grapplers but I give Tyron the edge on the striking department. Jake’s best bet is to try putting Tyron on his back. Jake however, looked heavily dehydrated which might affect his stamina and performance. Don’t blink on this one.
Prediction: Woodley by KO
Alexis Davis vs. Rosi Sexton
Alexis has the looks, the drive and the subs. Rosi who looked mean at the weigh ins is a well-seasoned veteran but I don’t see her winning against the young hungry contender.
Prediction: Davis by submission
