Ufc Apex Las Vegas, NV
Curtis Blaydes -405 Under 2.5 -105
Coming into the fight here Blaydes stands in at 6’4”, but at that height he does not have the height advantage that he has grown used to. The weight is also coming in at 248 pounds for Blaydes, but he does have an 80 inch reach.
Blaydes is using the orthodox style of stance when he is coming into the ring to fight. When it comes to his fighting style, though, Blaydes has been seen as a striker and wrestler which will definitely help him out. The last 5 fights for Blaydes were 4 win and 1 loss. The loss was a KO/TKO loss, but the wins have been only one unanimous decision win with 3 KO/TKO wins.
With Volkov heading into the fight here he does have the height and weight advantage. Alexander Volkov is coming into the fight standing at 6’7” and 250 pounds. When it comes to the reach, though, Volkov is sitting at the same as Blaydes at 80 inches.
Alexander Volkov does use the orthodox type of stance. When it comes to the fighting style Volkov tends to rely on the striker style. In his last 5 matches Volkov has ended up going 4-1. The one loss was a KO/TKO loss. Two of the wins have been a unanimous decision win, but 2 of them were a KO/TKO win.
With the fight here it will be one that has a couple of very evenly matched fighters going to face off against each other. However, one thing that will definitely be slanted for the fight here is the fact that Blaydes can switch styles and for a big guy is able to perform the takedowns, which is going to help him out as well and his speed helps to. Look for the fight to go quickly and be hard hitting, but it will end on the under with Blaydes coming out on top. Fight Night Prediction, Curtis Blaydes on the under.
