UFC 261

Anthony Smith vs Jimmy Crute

The first pick on tonight’s card is Anthony Smith fighting Jimmy Crute. Anthony Smith has struggled after his loss Jon Jones a few years ago with a record on 2-3 since. Jimmy Crute on the other hand is on fire with a professional record of 12-1. Jimmy Crute is a very good striker and grappler. I am taking Jimmy Crute -200.

Valentina Shevchenko vs Jessica Andrade

The first title fight on the card is Valentina Shevchenko vs Jessica Andrade. Andrade is a good striker landing 6.38 strikes per minute. Shevchenko isn’t as good of a striker only landing 2.98 strikes per minute. My pick for this game is the Jessica Andrade +370.

Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal

The final fight on the card is the main event between Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal. Usman is very good at getting his opponents to the mat with 3.22 takedowns per 15 minutes. Masvidal doesn’t do near as good on his take downs with only 1.57 takedowns per 15 minutes. My pick for this fight is Usman by Decision -125.

  • Jimmy Crute -200
  • Jessica Andrade +370
  • Usman by Decision -125
