Six of the Best: UFC on FOX 18 Johnson vs. Bader
By Owen Phillips 28/1/16
Six of the Best tries to find you 6 winners from each UFC event. This event is UFC on FOX 18 Johnson vs. Bader which takes place on Sunday (Australian time).
Anthony Johnson ($1.30) vs. Ryan Bader ($3.50)
Ryan Bader has been on a great run and is deserving of a title shot. I think he isn’t able to survive the early parts of the fight against Johnson and is disappointed with a loss.
Winner – Anthony Johnson
Ben Rothwell ($2.10) vs. Josh Barnett ($1.72)
Barnett will look to close the distance and make things ugly. I think Rothwell can negotiate the compromising situations and get his hand raised.
Winner – Ben Rothwell
Iuri Alcantara ($2.40) vs. Jimmie Rivera ($1.58)
Alcantara has a wealth of MMA experience and will try to use that against rising prospect Rivera. Rivera had a last start win over a tough Pedro Munhoz and carries an incredible seventeen-fight win streak into this fight. This will be a great test for Rivera and I think it may be too tough a task.
Winner – Iuri Alcantara
Jake Ellenberger ($3.00) vs. Tarec Saffiedine ($1.40)
Ellenberger will try to unleash his hands and Saffiedine will keep him away with his kicks and get the victory.
Winner – Tarec Saffiedine
Olivier Aubin-Mercier ($1.33) vs. Diego Ferreira ($3.40)
A very close fight against two high level grapplers. I think Aubin-Mercier has a strength advantage and controls the fight.
Winner – Olivier Aubin-Mercier
Kevin Casey ($2.40) vs. Rafael Natal ($1.58)
Casey likes to get the KO early or can slow down considerably later on. Natal is crafty and will chip away at Casey to get the win.
Winner – Rafael Natal
If you are going to have a bet, make sure it’s fun and stop if it’s stressful.
