UFC 283 Main Card Preview

Paul Craig vs. Johnny Walker

Although Paul Craig lost his last bout, before the loss, the underdog in this had fought great. Craig had won 4 straight, 2 via submission, and a couple via TKO/KO. No opponent had lasted past the second round in Craig’s 4 previous bouts before Volkan Oezdemir beat Craig via unanimous decision at UFC 280.

Favorite Johnny Walker had lost 2 straight, but in his last, Walker stepped it up against Ion Cutelaba, forcing his rival to submit in the first round at UFC 279. But although Walker should enter the Octagon the chalk, Craig has been the more consistent MMA fighter. The dog gets the nod.

UFC 283 Pick: Bryce Mitchell

Lauren Murphy vs. Jessica Andrade

Underdog Lauren Murphy has won 4-of-5. In her last, Murphy beat Miesha Tate via unanimous decision. Tate hadn’t fought well leading up to the bout. So Murphy must step it up to have any shot of beating Jessica Andrade.

The favorite in this has won 3-of-4. Andrade’s lone loss in her last 4 came in a championship bout against Valentina Shevchenko. Since the loss, Andrade has won a bout via knockout or technical knockout and 1 via submission. The chalk takes this.

UFC 283 Pick: Jessica Andrade

Gilbert Burns vs. Neil Magny

Gilbert Burns has lost 2-of-3. The reason he’s such a big favorite to beat Neil Magny is because the underdog in this hasn’t fought anyone close to who Burns has fought.

Gilbert’s losses came versus Kamaru Usman in a championship bout and 12-0 Khamzat Chimaev. Usman is a champion while Chimaev is on his way to challenging Usman for the title.

Neil Magny has won 3-of-4. The loss came versus 16-0 Shavkat Rakhmanov via submission. Magny struggles versus opponents with an excellent ground game. Burns is 8-0 via submission wins, which is why the favorite is the pick.

UFC 283 Pick: Gilbert Burns

Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno // UFC Flyweight Championship

For the fourth straight time, Deiveson Figueiredo takes on Brandon Moreno for the UFC Flyweight title.

The first bout ended in a draw. Figueiredo, the current champ, lost the second bout via submission. Then Moreno lost the strap back to Deiveson in the third bout via unanimous decision.

What happens in the fourth bout? It’s anybody’s guess.

Moreno is likely to change tactics. He’ll be more aggressive in an attempt to get the fight to the mat where Brandon has an advantage. The heightened aggressiveness should help Moreno grab back the title.

UFC 283 Pick: Brandon Moreno

Glover Teixeira vs. Jamahal Hill // UFC Light Heavyweight Championship

43-year-old Glover Teixeira is a champion by default. Teixeira lost his last bout, a title fight versus Jiri Prochazka.

But Prochazka decided to vacate the title. So UFC handed the belt to Teixeira. On Saturday night Jamahal Hill should take the title from Glover. Hill has won 3 straight via TKO/KO. The much younger fighter is 7-1 via TKO/KO victories. Teixeira is going to struggle with Jamahal’s superior speed.

UFC 283 Pick: Jamahal Hill<
