UFC 209 ML Best Bets

Alistair Overeem (-130)
I like Overeem in this fight against Mark Hunt, and i think he’ll win by a somewhat comfortable decision, or maybe even a late stoppage. Skill for skill, Overeem is the better overall fighter. He’s also more active, and believe or not, he’s the smarter fighter. I see Overeem staying on the outside, and landing the better shots, enroute to a unanimous decision victory.

Daniel Kelly (+190)
What Daniel Kelly lacks in skill, he makes up for with determination. His will to win is inarguable, having won as an underdog in five out of his last six fights. This is a guy that was a record 4x Olympic Judoka for Australia, and if you know anything about Olympic athletes, their heart & work ethic is unparalleled. Basically, unless you knock out Daniel Kelly, he’ll never break. And he definitely won’t break in this fight against Rashad Evans. Even if he’s put on his back, he’ll find a way to get back up and beat him. Kelly will ALWAYS give you a fair fight for your money. You can take that to the bank.
