Six of the Best: UFC Fight Night 81 Dillashaw vs. Cruz

By Owen Phillips     13/1/16

Six of the Best tries to find you 6 winners from each UFC event. This event is UFC Fight Night 81 Dillashaw vs. Cruz which takes place on Monday (Australian time).

It’s more difficult to find some winners from this event because the fights are so evenly matched. Let’s see what I can do for you.


Travis Browne ($1.60) vs. Matt Mitrione ($2.30)

Mitrione is a solid fighter and will be desperate to get a win but I think Browne has too many skills to determine the result of the fight.

Winner – Travis Browne

Ross Pearson ($1.60) vs. Francisco Trinaldo ($2.30)

Trinaldo has been on a good run recently including a last start KO and has a good ground game. I think Pearson keeps the fight standing and gets the win with his superior boxing.

Winner – Ross Pearson

Patrick Cote ($1.95) vs. Ben Saunders ($1.83)

Cote will be able to take everything Saunders will throw at him and deliver significant damage to his opponent to snatch the win.

Winner – Patrick Cote

Tim Boetsch ($1.42) vs. Ed Herman ($2.80)

Boetsch had a last start disappointment against the legend Dan Henderson and Herman similarly suffered a TKO against Derek Brunson. Both fighters have been facing high level competition, it’s going to be a close one and I think Herman does enough to win.

Winner – Ed Herman

Daron Cruickshank ($3.00) vs. Paul Felder ($1.38)

A battle of talented strikers who both need a victory to break a losing streak. I think Felder is more durable and gets his hand raised.

Winner – Paul Felder

Ilir Latifi ($1.35) vs. Sean O’Connell ($3.15)

Both light-heavyweights have heavy hands. Whoever connects first will steer the fight in their favour. I think Latifi gets the win.

Winner – Ilir Latifi
