ITS TIME UFC 213 – Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Shevchenko, Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero and Fabricio Werdum vs Alistair Overeem. The rest of the card is also stacked with some nice match ups including Jim Miller vs Anthony Pettis. Pettis losing here would be really tough, currently he has lost 4 out of his last five fights. He is going to have to find a way to deal the the preasure of MMA journey man Jim Miller. Werdum and Overeem will face off for the third (and final?) time. It will be interesting to see what has changed since the last time they fought in Strikeforce. Wittaker and Romero are both on rampage winning streaks, this is going to be good. Nunes and Shevchenko have also faced each other and this is turning into a grudge match. Five rounds might turn out to be the difference this time. Let´s take a look at some bets on a few of these fights.
Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Shevchenko
This rematch is five rounds this time around. Both fighters have improved their game, but I do not see a whole lot of difference between this and the first match up. Nunes is going to need to finish this early and will favor taking Shevchenko down. In top control Nunes can use ground and pound or BJJ to finish Shevchenko. Although Nunes has a lot of power standing I see the the fight standing favoring Shevchenko. I think that Nunes being a little too aggressive could play into Schevchenko´s counter striking. I do not think there will be a lot of action in round one and Shevschenko will be happy to be on the outside. The extra rounds favor Schevchenko, after making it though rounds one and two with no finish from Nunes, Nunes will be tired. When you are a little bit tired and a technical striker like Shevchenko has started to get your timing, you are hating life.
Pick Shevchenko ML 1.91
Fabricio Werdum vs Alistair Overeem
These two will face each other for a third time. Last time in Strikeforce Overeem won via decision, since then both of them have had some success in the UFC. Overeem has changed his style to being more conservative and waiting for a chance to counterstrike. He does have a questionable chin and this new style has worked out pertty well for him. Just waiting for you to make a mistake. Overeem still has some of the best striking in the HW division ever. Werdum has really improved his striking a lot in the past few years. Unlike back in the days of pride where he was a BJJ only guy now he mixes it up with kicks, punches, combos, flying knees ect. He has a solid clinch game to round things off. Since Werdum doesnt mind being taken down since most dont want to have anything to do with him on the ground period, this frees him up to be more loose with his striking. I think that in this three round fight Werdum is going to outwork Overeem and win rounds. Werdum has a good fighter IQ, almost trolling the other guy at times as he sits on the outside picking them apart.
Pick: Werdum ML 2.10
