Arnold Allen (-350) vs Gilbert Melendez (+265)
Arnold Allen (14-1) may be among the greatest fighters you haven’t seen before and the chances suggest oddsmakers are taking him seriously against Gilbert Melendez (22-7). Allen tends to fly under the radar somewhat as he has only fought once a year because 2014, but if he does fight, fans are in for a treat.
Allen is somebody who lets his game do the talking and that he does not tend to be a character pre- or post-fight, that can hurt when it comes to advertising. He’s making an effort to be active as it is his second fight in 2019. He comes into this bout undefeated in the UFC with a 5-0 record with two functionality of the nighttime awards to his credit.
Gilbert Melendez, 12 years older than the upstart Allen, has been through wars with just about everyone in the UFC. Melendez has without question declined, entering the fight. It’s not a fantastic sign when a fighter should step away from the sport to find their love for it . After his last fight, he did just that, but I have very real questions about the motivation of Melendez, who has not won since 2013.
This will be the biggest fight of Allen’s career and when he’s got a nice showing, it ought to vault him into the top 15, finally. He’s well educated and has shown an ability to accommodate to the struggle in front of him.
Interestingly, he has given away a number of his approach , saying:”I’m prepared for anything, I have had all sorts of struggles. I have been in boring fights where no one gets hit and you wind up winning without getting touched, and I have had fights where I’ve been in little brawls, kind of grinding fights, so I’ll be ready for whatever he brings. I am just planning to outpoint himoutskill himand going for somewhat better than him on the evening ”
I concur, and Allen must point-fight his way into a conclusion triumph, but he needs not to give in to Melendez, who’ll desire a kill-or-be-killed firefight.
