Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway III
UFC Featherweight Co-Main Event Championship Bout
Saturday, July 2, 2022 – 11:00 PM EDT at T-Mobile Arena
Volkanovski vs. Holloway Betting Pick Analysis
Alexander Volkanovski (24-1-0)
The pound-for-pound No.2 ranked fighter on the planet Alexander Volkanovski (24-1-0) has been undefeated since 2013 behind a 21-fight winning streak that involves two consecutive victories over his Saturday night UFC 276 opponent.
Whilst many critics disagree with the decision-making in their rubber match, the record states that Volkanovski won, and by no way can the word ‘robbery’ be thrown into the mix.
Volk is the greatest Australian fighter to ever compete in the UFC – a tough ask when you consider Robert Whittaker’s presence – and potentially on his way to becoming the best 135lb competitor in the company’s history.
Max “Blessed” Holloway (23-6-0)
Standing opposite Volkanovski this weekend will be Max “Blessed” Holloway (23-6-0), who is, undoubtedly, the most talented featherweight next to the champion and is rightfully receiving his third opportunity to claim his crown back.
Aged just 30 years old, it’s truly remarkable what Holloway has achieved during the early years of his professional career; he’s the youngest veteran on the UFC roster, and if anybody can dethrone Alexander “The Great”, “Blessed” is the man to do it.
Volkanovski vs. Holloway Prediction and Odds
If every mixed martial artist bout involved facing each other on three occasions during three separate times within their professional careers, we’d likely witness a plethora of mixed results.
However, the elite-level skillset of Holloway and Volkanovski is likely to produce a similar result every time – an extremely close fight that will cause the judges’ a headache in depicting the successor.
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review are giving us Volkanovski as a significant betting favorite on the moneyline, a position I don’t feel comfortable wagering on.
Whilst I believe Volkanovski owns the higher ceiling during this time in his career, and there’s a great chance he’ll successfully defend his title, this contest should be labeled with a pick’em moneyline price.
With that said, as I expect a repeat of the first two encounters, both men have shown their incredible durability and almost unbreakable hearts. This bout is going the distance, and we should anticipate another nerve-bending split decision.
Sean O’Malley vs. Pedro Munhoz
UFC Bantamweight Main Card Bout
Saturday, July 2, 2022 - 10:10 PM EDT at T-Mobile Arena
O’Malley vs. Munhoz Betting Pick Analysis
“Sugar” Sean O’Malley (14-1-0)
“Sugar” Sean O’Malley (14-1-0) is a phenomenal talent inside the cage who has also built a career outside of the octagon, and it's this level of intelligence and drive that I love in a fighter.
The most successful mixed martial artists in UFC have been those with an IQ that can be utilized when engaging in the purest form of combat on the planet.
I’ll take Sean’s piece out of my mouth for a moment, but there’s no denying that level of striking that he’s put on display during his 15-fight career is a rarity in this sport.
Let’s not mention the Chito Vera fight because if we’re being transparent, everybody knows that O’Malley was doing what he does best before the leg injury occurred.
Pedro Munhoz (19-7-0)
Pedro Munhoz (19-7-0) has fought countless former champions of the bantamweight division, but he could never quite cross the finish line.
The Brazilian is unquestionably one of the most recognizable names at 125lbs, but what game plan can he implement to prevent a sugar show from taking place on Saturday night?
O’Malley vs. Pedro Munhoz Prediction and Odds
Adesanya, Volkanovski, Holloway, Pereira, and Sean O’Malley – with zero exaggeration whatsoever, are five of the most well-versed, technical, and skilled strikers that have ever graced the octagon.
UFC 276 will be a spectacle for striking purists, and I expect the footwork, speed, faints, baiting tactics, shot selection, and fast decision-making of O’Malley to reign supreme, and finally, “Sugar” will enter the top-10 rankings where he belongs. Make note of the above for your UFC picks.
