UFC 244 Betting Predictions

Five top-class fights will be on show at UFC 244.

Kevin Lee vs Gregor Gillespie

Kevin Lee will start as underdog in a fight that looks to be much more of a mismatch than the early odds suggest. Gregor Gillespie is undefeated in this weight class and is 13-0 to date.

Lee has lost two in a row and returns to the lightweight division after having little success in welterweight, and even the man himself has said that “this is the dumbest fight I could’ve took” ahead of the showdown with Gillespie.

Yet Lee loves a challenge and perhaps he will rise to the occasion. Underdogs have had plenty of success over the last numbered UFC fight nights, and Lee will certainly add to that tally if he can win here.

The odds on Gillespie are quite juicy for a fight he should win though, and it’s hard to argue with his form and record. Go for Gillespie @ 1.58.

Derrick Lewis vs Blagoy Ivanov

Heavyweight bouts are often all about knockout victories and Derrick Lewis comes into this fight with 86% of his wins by knockout.

Yet his overall 21-7 record shows that it’s not all smooth sailing, and in fact recently lost back to back fights for the first time in his career. He’s an all-or-nothing type fighter with a habit of tiring quickly after a fast start.

Blagoy Ivanov is quite the opposite, having achieved knockouts in 33% of his bout victories. He last defeated Tai Tuivasa in June and has won 10 of his last 12 with an overall record of 18-2-1.

Ivanov is far from a traditional heavyweight fighter as he is much more inclined to take the fight to the canvas.

While Ivanov could cause his opponent problems due to his technique, Lewis has a huge size advantage, and a massive six-inch reach advantage. With his striking power and that edge, he should come out on top. Go for Lewis @ 1.60.

Stephen Thompson vs Vicente Luque

The first welterweight fight of the main card looks to be a case of power vs agility. Vicente Luque is definitely the power player, and is in better form with 10 of his last 11 resulting in victories.

Stephen Thompson is coming off a poor run having lost three of his last four fights, and is coming off a knockout loss to Anthony Pettis in March.

While Thompson has the slight reach advantage, Luque’s power should be concerning for a fighter that was knocked out for the first time in his latest bout. Luque has fought more recently and should overcome Thompson here. Go for Vicente Luque @ 1.82.

Kelvin Gastelum vs Darren Till

This middleweight bout will see two fighters looking to bounce back after losses. Darren Till has actually lost his last two fights, having won 17 of his previous 18. Yet the two previous fights were arguably the biggest for the Englishman, and he will not want to go down three times in a row.

Kelvin Gastelum has a 15-4 record coming into this bout and has never lost by knockout. While he has only won 40% of his fights by knockout, four of his last six wins have been decided in this fashion and he has a reputation for being aggressive.

Gastelum isn’t quite as big as Till, although would be more effective if this fight goes to ground. It’s a tough one to call, but Gastelum is the better fighter so we’re going to stick with him. Go for Kelvin Gastelum @ 1.65

Main Event - Jorge Misvidal vs Nate Diaz

The top fight of the night sees two hard men coming face to face and looks to be one that will go the distance. Jorge Misvidal has won 50% of his fights by decision, while Nate Diaz is such a tough customer who is able to hang in there for the long haul. 

Diaz is the underdog and probably only has a shot if this one goes to ground. Masvidal has better footwork and is more accurate at striking, so he should win comfortably if both fighters stay on their feet. This is the more likely scenario, and explains why Masvidal is the favourite.

We think that Misvidal simply has a better and more rounded approach to fighting here.

He has been known to successfully takedown and engage in wrestling and submission grappling, so even if the fight hits the canvas he’s still a good chance. Go for Jorge Misvidal @ 1.59.
