UFC Fight Night 210 ‘Precise Picks+Best Bet’

Chidi Njokuani vs. Gregory Rodrigues

Awesome fight card beginning at 3 PM CT. My best bet is focused on two bruisers in the middleweight division. Chidi Njokuani is on a roll and finds himself matched up against Robocop better known as Gregory Rodrigues.

Chidi Njokuani will have a 5″ reach advantage in this fight. Combined with a 73% striking accuracy. Both fighters stand at 6’3″ tall.

Rodrigues truly stands a chance if he can mix in his wrestling averaging 2.40 takedown attempts per 15-minute fight. However, that is a shot in the dark against Njokuani who has a 74% takedown defense through three-fights in the UFC.

Rodrigues is a tricky fighter to figure out. His size may fool you into thinking he is slow, but he only slows himself down if he empties his gas tank early.

Chidi Njokuani has a flash knockout ability that keeps fighters on their toes. He will look to drag Rodrigues into the mud and lure him in for a finishing blow. One wrong move and it is lights out for Rodrigues. That is a scary talent to possess at the middleweight division for Chidi Njokuani.

Rodrigues has serious power, but I am banking on Njokuani not becoming careless in a three-round fight.

I pick this fight for the fight of the night because not only will it be explosive, but we will see how far both of these fighters have come along in their careers.

Preston’s Best Bet: Chidi Njokuani ML (-122)
