Category : Sin categoría
On Saturday night at UFC 234 at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, Robert Whittaker will Shield his middleweight title against the fourth-ranked contender, Kelvin Gastelum.
From the co-main event, all-time great Anderson Silva takes on the new breed of fighter, striking phenom Israel Adesanya, at a bout with name implications at stake.
It’s a night of middleweight action in Melbourne, however there are some heavyweight bets available for lovers of UFC betting to make, so let us get into it.
Whittaker-Gastelum UFC 234 Betting Analysis The most important event on Saturday is that a cracker of a struggle between two former Ultimate Fighter winners with comparable strengths.
Whittaker’s run to the middleweight name was evidenced with a harmful, multi-layered game that was remarkable. Whittaker can press ahead or counter tops, works in combination, has knockout power in his punches and sharp leg kicks he can set speed with.
“Bobby Knuckles” has also become an elite wrestler, winning the Australian national championships just last year.
Unexpectedly, Gastelum came into MMA using a history in high school wrestling, and it has come to be a highly dangerous striker. On the toes, Gastelum prefers a pressure-oriented style, where he could throw in combination and search for the knockout.
Gastelum also prefers to use his wrestling much more offensively than Whittaker, shooting takedowns at almost twice the speed of the UFC middleweight winner.
Whittaker-Gastelum Bets Bets
Though both guys can wrestle, both favor striking contests and Whittaker in particular are going to be able to dictate where this fight occurs. This implies this should largely be a striking contest and there, Whittaker gets the advantage.
Whittaker has more tools, works in a higher pace, and is brilliant at adjusting over time. In addition to that, Yoel Romero did everything short of decapitate him in their final fight and was unable to stop Whittaker, so it is hard to think Gastelum could do so.
Whittaker is a -265 favorite per SugarHouse, and those chances believe spot on. But, Whittaker by choice is +200 in SugarHouse, and considering Whittaker is the heavy favorite and Gastelum has just been stopped once — which was by submission, a skill we’ve yet to see from Whittaker — which is certainly worth a bet.
UFC 234 Silva-Adesanya Betting Evaluation When Anderson Silva was on top of the MMA world, he always insisted that the fight he would most like to have would be against his clone. Now that Silva is at the twilight of his career, he finally gets his wish, or , the next best thing.
Israel Adesanya is the hottest prospect in MMA right now, having made his UFC debut only last season and racking up four notable victories with a stylish, violent striking match reminiscent of Silva’s prime.
Adesanya can do everything on the feet and unlike Silva, he is also more prone to initiating offense instead of waiting to counterstrike.
