What Went Wrong at UFC 286?
Joanne Wood, Gunnar Nelson, Christian Leroy Duncan and Jack Shore
Good work, though acknowledgements to Duncan for needing to win that method.
Well, I was ideal about him having the ability to deal with Jai Herbert on the feet, simply not about the fight remaining there. I scored it a draw, so I can’t grumble.
Leon Edwards battled remarkably and Usman did not have the untouchable self-confidence that formerly enabled him to stroll down “Rocky” and neutralize him against the fence.
I had him eking out the 2nd round, however ball games were great. He took some major damage and Gaethje changed completely after fighting with the speed distinction for so long. Fair play to him.
I understood he wasn’t the very best at handling range, however I didn’t believe he’d contrive to get knocked into next year in the most slapstick style you can possibly imagine. At least it was amusing enough that I can’t get too mad (watch highlights).

UFC San Antonio Odds For The Under Card:
Manel Kape (-175) vs. Alex Perez (+145)
It’s most likely best to prevent this one. Perez is the very best grappler Kape has actually dealt with considering that his 0-2 UFC start, however has actually hardly battled in the last couple of years.
Tucker Lutz (-280) vs. Daniel Pineda (+235)
Lutz might be the most significant preferred on the card, however he’s still worth a financial investment. Though his grit and power have yet to subside, Pineda has actually looked slower and more hittable than ever in current bouts with Cub Swanson and Andre Fili. Lutz is well-rounded enough to manage himself anywhere the fight goes and isn’t going to implode the method Herbert Burns did, so utilize him as a trusted anchor.
Steven Peterson (-170) vs. Lucas Alexander (+145)
This match is most likely best prevented. Though I do believe Peterson’s pressure and volume will ultimately get to Alexander, the latter is much faster and more attractive on the feet, which might be enough to eke out a choice. Peterson’s likewise missed out on weight two times in a row, so there’s no informing what shape he’ll remain in.
Trevin Giles (-110) vs. Preston Parsons (-110)
I truly like Parsons at near-even odds. It’s been years considering that Giles presented an attractive efficiency, and while he’s coming off a win over Louis Cosce, he looked forgettable against a guy who didn’t even toss 50 strikes. If absolutely nothing else, Parsons is dependably aggressive and competent on the ground, which need to suffice to bring him to success.
CJ Vergara (-240) vs. Daniel Da Silva (+200)
Skip it! Da Silva is skilled enough to blowout Vergara and psychologically weak enough to collapse anytime.
Manuel Torres (-150) vs. Trey Ogden (+130)
Ogden strikes me as a good underdog choice. Nobody has actually truly checked Torres’ grappling of late and Ogden’s never ever been stopped with strikes, that makes me think “Samurai Ghost” can weather the early blitz and take control of down the stretch.
Vinicius Salvador (-115) vs. Victor Altamirano (-105)
I’d have chosen him as an underdog, however a bit on Salvador makes good sense. “Fenomeno” strikes incredibly tough for a guy his size and Altamirano has some strange protective practices that figure to bite him in the back. Just keep the financial investment little, as Altamirano does have a good fumbling video game and Salvador has yet to show whether his takedown defense can hold up in the Octagon.
Hailey Cowan (-135) vs. Tamires Vidal (+115)
Cowan opened as an underdog prior to the lines entirely turned, so there’s plainly been some attention on this one. I’m unsure I wish to get involved, however, since it’s a fight that will likely occur nearly completely in the clinch. And while I preferred Ailin Perez over Cowan in a comparable match, I’m not as positive in Vidal’s capabilities as I remain in “Fiona’s.”

UFC San Antonio Odds For The Main Card:
Cory Sandhagen (-170) vs. Marlon Vera (+145)
Vera’s “losing till he really unexpectedly isn’t” technique has actually been incredibly constant in its success of late, however that stops here. Not just is Sandhagen long lasting sufficient to trade hands with the similarity John Lineker and Song Yadong, however he’s far busier than Vera and uses sufficient range in his video game that Vera can’t count on finding out the best shot. Definitely provide me Sandhagen at much better than -200.
Holly Holm (-240) vs. Yana Santos (+200)
Santos hasn’t battled considering that 2021 and Holm looked ancient in in 2015’s loss to Ketlen Vieira. Too numerous variables.
Nate Landwehr (-230) vs. Austin Lingo (+195)
All aboard “The Train.” Lingo, a punching expert, is not going to out-grit Landwehr, whose large relentlessness and suffocating fumbling need to work a reward. While Landwehr has actually had problem with exceptional professional athletes in the past, Lingo has to do with the level of fighter he’s handled to run over.
Maycee Barber (-275) vs. Andrea Lee (+230)
Skip it! Both ladies have actually had their share of irregular efficiencies.
Chidi Njokuani (-165) vs. Albert Duraev (+135)
Look, I enjoy Chidi Njokuani, however this looks like an overreaction to Duraev’s loss to Joaquin Buckley. Though “Machete” got tooled bell-to-bell because fight, he’s beaten quality strikers like Slava Vasilevskiy prior to and uses a level of ground ability that Njokuani has actually had problem with in the past. He’s damn sure a more difficult match up for Njokuani than sluggish, hittable mills like Marc-Andre Barriault and Dusko Todorovic.
