الجمعة ١٣ سبتمبر ٢٠١٩

Just one important UFC card in February and it is Saturday night from Perth Arena in Australia (fight is Sunday Down Under) as Luke Rockhold takes on fill-in challenger Yoel Romero for its interim middleweight belt. It is the only title fight on the card. Per usual, the main card will begin at 10 p.m. ET and on pay-per-view. The prelims are on Fox Sports 1. Following is a peek at the main fights. The UFC made its introduction in Australia with UFC 110 in February 2010. The organization’s first card in Western Australia, will be its 12th in the country. Let’s have a look the very best UFC 221 betting odds for this particular Saturday.
UFC 221 Betting Odds, Predictions & Picks UFC 221 Betting Odds: Rockhold (+135) / Romero (-160) The Cuban Romero is your No. 1 contender in the middleweight division and also the American Rockhold that the No. 2. Rockhold is -140 in Mybookie.ag with Romero at +120 and also an over/under of 1.5 rounds. So who is the champion? Australian Robert Whittaker, but he had been made to pull against Rockhold due to injury — the most important reason the card is in Australia was due to Whittaker. “I have gone into several fights hurt,” Whittaker said this week. “I went to the Yoel Romero fight with a torn MCL, I moved into multiple fights with broken hands, and that’s never deterred me. And through my homework and my camp, I did my hamstring — I’d blow my hamstring out — but that I was ready to work around it. So we just worked around it, threw it on the wall, no volatile sort of material, then I got an abscess infection. That absolutely knocked me out of the playground.” While he was previously able to train his hamstring injury, the infection ended up leaving”The Reaper” bedridden for several weeks, and Whittaker believes that the loopholes of his immune system might have resulted in his ensuing battle with chickenpox as well. Chickenpox in adults can be quite severe, even fatal.
When Was the Last Time Robert Whittaker Fought?
Whittaker last fought in July, beating Romero by unanimous decision. He hasn’t confronted Rockhold. Georges St-Pierre won the middleweight title last year over Michael Bisping at UFC 217 but vacated it since he could not defend it in because time due to his health issues. Whittaker subsequently won the interim belt vs. Romero. A former UFC champion, Rockhold is coming from a TKO win over David Branch in September. Rockhold lost his title to Bisping in UFC 199 in June 2016. Concerning striking differential (the difference between significant strikes acquired per minute and important strikes absorbed per minute) Rockhold includes a significant edge over Romero. His striking differential in the UFC is plus-2.50, while Romero’s is currently plus-0.77. But during his UFC career, Romero has scored six knockdowns at a rate of 0.78 knockdown per 15 minutes. Rockhold only includes two knockdowns through eight-career UFC fights. Additionally, he’s been on the receiving end of three knockdowns.
Mark Hunt (13-11) vs. Curtis Blaydes (8-1)
UFC 221 Betting Odds: Hunt (+135) / Blaydes (-160) It’s a heavyweight bout with New Zealand’s Hunt ranked No. 5 in the branch and Blaydes No. 9. However, Blaydes is a -160 favorite and Hunt +135. Hunt was recently cleared to return to competition. Citing”medical concerns,” Hunt was pulled out of November’s UFC Fight Night 121 headliner in Sydney, a decision had been made later Hunt admitted to memory loss and slurred address at a piece he wrote for PlayersVoice.com.au titled,”When I perish fighting, that’s fine.” Hunt, already with one lawsuit against the UFC, jeopardized another in the wake of the advertising’s decision to pull him from UFC Sydney. He called UFC President Dana White that a”bald-headed prick” at a scathing Instagram post. Hunt maintained this suspension was punishment for the civil lawsuit he filed against the company, White and Brock Lesnar regarding Lesnar’s failed test at UFC 200. Hunt’s final fight occurred in May in UFC Fight Night 110, where he conquered Derrick Lewis via TKO at a slugfest”Fight of the Night.” After enduring a TKO loss to top contender Francis Ngannou in his promotional debut, Blaydes, a 26-year-old former collegiate wrestler, has since won four consecutive fights. Three of those wins — over Cody East, Adam Milstead and Oleksiy Oliynyk — arrived via knockout. Blaydes has finished seven of the eight career wins by knockout or technical knockout.
