Tucker has been great so far in the featherweight division. His fighting resume shows that he has 4 wins by knockout, 5 by submission, and 2 by decision.
“Guv’nor” has a striking accuracy at 32 percent and a grappling accuracy at 20 percent. He lands 2.60 significant strikes a minute while absorbing 5.07. This ratio is largely on the negative side, as he takes on more hits than he delivers.

Potential Winning Pick
Both of these fighters have been able to win often and early in their bouts. Do these odds represent this fight well or can an upset take place?
Tucker has been able to claim victories with only one loss. However, his stats have to catch up with him at some point. His defense is not the best and his offense is arguably worse.
This will be Jaynes second fight in the octagon and he tastes blood. I believe you see him fighting for his shot to stay in the UFC and let people know who he is and what he is all about.
