Alonzo Menifield vs. Askar Mozharov
UFC Light Heavyweight Main Card Bout
Saturday, June 04, 2022 – 04:10 PM EDT at UFC Apex Center
Menifield vs. Mozharov Betting Pick Analysis
Alonzo Menifield (11-3-0) doesn't boast the most extensive professional MMA record.
Still, since his arrival to the UFC from Dana White's Contender Series in 2019, the Fortis MMA product has fought a significantly experienced level of competition.
A 4-3 promotional record doesn't pose a serious threat to the all-seeing eye, but the 34-year-old has shown a level of maturity during his rise.
Askar Mozharov (21-11-0) will make his UFC debut versus stiff competition on Saturday, but the most notable attribute for the Ukraine-based fighter would be his first-round finishing ability.
With that said, you can look at this from a different perspective; what happens to Mozharov outside of the first round he's so used to finishing fights in?
UFC Vegas 56 Parlay Prediction
If you're tape studying Mozharov, you'll instantly notice his lack of grappling ability in addition to the low level of competition he's faced thus far.
Menifield will undoubtedly be the most formidable opponent he's faced during his pro career, and it will only take a grappling approach to nullify the knockout threat of the Ukrainian.
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review favor Menifield, and I see a lot of value in this -180 moneyline.
I'd personally line Menifield around -250 to -300; it's challenging to envision Mozharov presenting any serious threats outside of a one-punch knockout.
UFC Pick: Menifield win (-180) with BetOnline
Dan Ige vs. Movsar Evloev
Saturday, June 04, 2022 - 05:50 PM EDT at UFC Apex Center
Ige vs. Evloev Betting Pick Analysis
Movsar Evloev (15-0-0) will attempt to extend his unbeaten professional MMA record and break into the top-15 rankings of the featherweight division when he faces former top-10 ranked Dan Ige this Saturday evening.
Most notably, Evloev owns a sambo wrestling background that is almost always put to great use inside the octagon.
Khabib-esk grappling with a smothering ground game could position the Russian-born fighter as a serious title contender of the future.
Dan Ige (15-5-0) has prospered since his arrival to the UFC octagon in 2018, but the Couture MMA standout started to struggle when the level of opposition began to rise.
A 6-fight win streak quickly turned into a 1-3 losing record from his previous four fights as "50k" failed to overcome.
UFC Vegas 56 Parlay Prediction
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review support Evloev with a hefty -415 moneyline, but it's difficult to challenge this price tag.
Dan Ige is live for a knockout, but the grinding style of Evloev will be the superior skill set, and where Dan Ige prospers in his striking – looping overhands – the head movement of the Russian is more than capable of avoiding a knockout stoppage scenario.
UFC Pick: Evloev wins (-415) with BetOnline
- Menifield win (-180)
- Evloev wins (-415)
