UFC middleweight competitor Dricus Du Plessis is set to deal with a difficult difficulty in his upcoming fight against previous champ Robert Whittaker. The winner of this bout will place themselves for a possibility to difficulty Israel Adesanya for the title. However, the betting lines greatly prefer Whittaker, with Du Plessis being viewed as a substantial underdog.
Du Plessis has actually been on an excellent winning streak, with 7 successive triumphes and an unbeaten record in the UFC. Despite this, odds makers are not offering him much of a possibility against the more knowledgeable and accomplished Whittaker. FanDuel has Du Plessis as a +285 underdog, while Whittaker is a -400 favorite.
The panelists of MMA Junkie’s “Spinning Back Clique” weigh in on Du Plessis’ opportunities against Whittaker. Farah Hannoun, Brian “Goze” Garcia, and Danny Segura talk about whether the odds properly show the match and whether Du Plessis has a possibility of beating “The Reaper.” The panelists offer their analysis and forecasts for the fight.
