UFC 266

Omar Morales vs Jonathan Pearce

The first fight on this weeks card is Omat Morales taking on Jonathan Pearce. Morales is a decent fighter, but he I think that he is going to struggle grappling in this fight. For Pearce, he has some massive power in his hands and comes in following a huge win over Kai Kamaka. My pick for this game is Jonathan Pearce +131.

Nick Maximov vs Karl Roberson

The second fight on the card is Nick Maximov taking on Karl Roberson. Nick Maximov is a huge prospect from the Diaz camp who is make is UFC debut in this fight. While Karl Roberson is a decent fighter, he really struggles to avoid the submissions. My pick for this game is Nick Maximov -115.

Uros Medic vs Jalin Turner

The final prelim play of the night is Uros Medic taking on Jalin Turner. Medic has had only one fight get to the second round, and even in that fight he got the finish in just 6 minutes. Jalin Turner is also a fighter with some great KO power. My pick for this game is Jalin Turner +105.

Robbie Lawler vs Nick Diaz

Moving on to the main card we have Robbie Lawler taking on Nick Diaz. Robbie Lawler enters this fight on a 4 fight losing streak with his last win coming in 2017 against Donald Cerone. Nick Diaz on the other hand hasn’t fought since 2015 and his last victory was all the way back in 2011. With that said, I think that Nick Diaz makes a big-time comeback in this fight.

Alexander Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega

Finally we have the main event between Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega. Alexander Volkanovski comes into this fight following his split decision title defense against Max Holloway. While Brian Ortega is a good fighter, I think that he is going to run into some real trouble against Volkanovski in this fight. I am taking Alexander Volkanovski -175 in this fight.

  • Jonathan Pearce +131
  • Nick Maximov -115
  • Jalin Turner +105
  • Nick Diaz -115
  • Alexander Volkanovski -175
