For the UFC Fight Overeem vs Harris event, there will be plenty of betting opportunities. One such betting opportunity to watch is the Eryk Anders and Krzysztof Jotko middleweight fight.
Eryk Anders (13-4-0)
Anders' resume consists of eight wins by knockout, one by submission, and three by decision. He has some solid numbers with a striking accuracy of 48 percent and a grappling accuracy of 40 percent.
“Ya Boi” lands 2.89 significant strikes a minute and absorbs 4.06. This is starting to turn into a negative ratio here, so hopefully he can turn this around. He averages 1.73 takedowns and 0.14 submissions every 15 minutes.
Anders also has a moderately high takedown defense at 75 percent and a decent significant strike defense at 49 percent. He can be difficult to take down but lacks a strong defense against significant strikes.
Krzysztof Jotko (21-4-0)
Jotko's fighting resume is packed with 13 wins by decision, six wins by knockout, and one by submission. He has a striking accuracy similar to Anders at 44 percent and a grappling accuracy of 40 percent.
Jotko averages 2.84 significant strikes a minute and absorbs 1.81. This is a solid ratio here that is also conservative. He averages 1.39 takedowns and 0.10 submissions every 15 minutes.
Jotko also has a high takedown defense at 86 percent and a slightly better significant strike defense than Anders at 58 percent. These are very solid numbers from Jotko that appear on paper just a little better than Anders numbers.

Potential Winning Pick
The awesome thing about the UFC is when they put fights together, most of the time the fighters are matched up very well. This is another one of those cases here, because they look identical on paper.
Overall, each fighter has a chance to win. I look for Anders to be a little more aggressive on the strikes, but I see Jotko playing it safe unless he sees an opportunity to close in. In total, I believe Jotko makes this fight last until a decision is won for him.
