Reza Madadi vs. Joe Duffy
Reza Madadi has only fought 3 times since April 2013, mainly in fact due to Madadi was sentenced to 18 months in a Sweeden jail for being found guilty of burglary and theft. He is now on a 10 month layoff with his last fight being a 3rd round KO of Yan Cabral at UFC Fight Night 87. His fight before that was against former UFC Vet Norman Parke, which he lost by 3 round unanimous decision. Madadi is a former Swedish Freestyle Wrestling Champion and Swedish Greco-Roman Wrestling Champion.
Joe Duffy trains out of the world famous Tristar Gym and sports a 15-2 record. His only 2 losses come by way of a 3 round unanimous decision to Dustin Poirier and a 4th round submission to Ivan Musardo. Duffy is a well rounded martial artists holding belts in various forms of marial arts including a black belt in Japanese Jiu Jitsu, Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and a Black Belt in Taekwondo. Duffy was a former pro boxer, who posted a 7-0 record as a pro boxer.
In this fight, I think Duffy will control where the fight takes place. He is a much better well rounded fighter that trains at a much higher level gym. He is also a much more active fighter, last fighting in July 2016 getting a win over Mitch Clarke. I think Duffy will win this fight and get a finish early in the 2nd round.
- Pick: Joe Duffy -600 for 2 Units (Recommend playing this in parlays and props)
Tom Breese vs. Oluwale Bamgbose
Tom Breese will be stepping up a weight class and taking on Oluwale Bamgbose in the UFC’s Middleweight Division. This is the first time Breese will be fighting at 185lbs. He has spent his career in the welterweight division. Breese is 10-1 overall and 3-1 in the UFC. His only loss comes at the hands of Sean Strickland in a 3 round decision.
Oluwale Bamgbose is 6-2 in his career and 1-2 in the UFC. He has lost 2 of the last 3 fights against Cezar Ferreira and Uriah Hall. Bamgbose showed in his last fight that once he gets put on the ground, his ground skills are very suspect. Bamgbose has a :24 second win and it also should be noted that all of his wins are in the 1st round and by knockout!
On one hand, Bamgbose simple does not impress me enough to put a wager on him. On the other hand, Breese is making his debut in a different weight class so I won’t be wagering on him. But one thing that sticks out to me is this fight has the making of a long drawn out decision. Breese has never been finished and Bamgbose has only been stopped one time in his career. I look for this fight to go deep in the fight and most likely to a decision.
- Pick: Breese vs. Bambose Over 1.5 Rounds for 2 Units at -105
