UFC on ESPN 17: Santos vs. Teixeira – Preston’s Picks

Co-Main Event: Andrei Arlovski (+240) vs. Tanner Boser (-295).

Arlovski (29-19) is the guy in the movie that keeps coming back after you think you’ve seen the last of him. Boser is the up and coming heavy hitter in the heavyweight division. For me the money line says it all … well most of it. Anyhow, Boser is an animal in the octagon right now. He has won his last two fights big time by finishing both opponents inside the distance. Add to it that he has won his last 4 out of 5 contests and we can see why this is going to be a whopper of a fight. Arlovski is still competing at a high-level. I hate going against Arlovski but he has been in too many wars for me to take him on the money line or by points tonight.

Main Event: Thiago Santos (-240) vs. Glover Teixeira (+198).

Teixeira (31-7) comes in on a 4-fight win streak. He is beating everyone they are throwing at him like a dungeon master in a video game. Everyone bigger or darn near the same size as him as well. Teixeira feeds off being the underdog and he is a healthy one tonight. Santos (21-7) is a beast and before his split decision loss to Jon Jones, was on a 4-fight win streak. Against many of the elite fighters such as Kevin Holland and one current champion Blachowicz. Get ready for a war tonight! However, I anticipate Santos starting slow before getting warmed up against Teixeira.
