UFC Fight Night 182: Felder vs. Dos Anjos – Preston’s Precise Picks

Co-Main Event: Abdul Razak Alhassan (-214) vs. Khalos Williams (+171)

Abdul Razak Alhassan also known as ‘Judo Thunder’ is back in the octagon to avenge a loss in his last bout by unanimous decision. The Ghana native fights out of the Fortis MMA GYM in Texas. Don’t be fooled by Alhassan’s last loss. He will be looking to quickly turn his fortune around tonight. Alhassan finished three fights before his last decision loss. The elder of this fight will look to use his experience to control the octagon. Khalos Williams is putting a name together for himself. On a seven-fight win streak. Fighting out of Murcielago MMA His last win happening in the UFC. Now gets a tougher opponent. Williams will need to rely on his five inch reach advantage and slim height advantage to avoid taking the devastating blows that Alhassan is known to land.

My Best Bet: Will The Fight Go The Distance YES (+430)

Main Event: Paul Felder (+165) vs. Rafael Dos Anjos (-195)

What can you say about these two warriors that hasn’t been said? Paul Felder, also known as the ‘Irish Dragon’ suffered a split-decision loss in his last fight to Dan Hooker. Rafael Dos Anjos has lost his last four out of five fights. Still entering this bout as a moderate favorite. Both guys have fought championship rounds before. They both have the wear and tear on their bodies. Paul respectively 35 years old and Dos Anjos respectively 36 years old. Both fighters game plan extremely well. I see this one staying on the feet where I give the edge to Felder. If it does become a grappling match I believe RDA would be the beneficiary of that. Paul Felder has planned for that. I expect him to fend off RDA and not allow this to go to the judges score cards if he can help it.

My Best Bet: Paul Felder (+165)

Whether it goes to decision or not I see Felder pulling out a win tonight. This fight screams legacy fight! Felder won’t let that slip by him.
