Kevin Holland -155 vs Kyle Daukaus

✅ Kevin Holland is a superior striker in every way. He will have power, volume, athleticism and length advantages.

✅ Kyle Daukaus is a solid grappler but not a pure wrestler. He does not bring the skill set that has haunted Holland in his recent fights. 

✅ Holland will be able to keep the fight standing for the majority, and cruise to a win either outpointing or finsishing the durable Daukaus. 

Betting Pick: Holland -155

Niko Price -170 vs Alex Oliveira

✅ Niko Price is the more durable of these two fighters who have no issues engaging in a brawl. 

✅ Both fighters will want to press forward, but Price will win that battle of will and durability. He will put Oliveira on the back foot and that alone neutralizes him in many ways.

✅ Price will put both pace and damage on Oliveira. Oliveira brings a questionable gas tank and Price will run away with the later portion of the fight, if he has not already found a finish by then. 

Betting Pick: Price -170

Casey O'Neill -220 vs Antonina Shevchenko

✅ Casey O'Neill has been extremely impressive in her first two UFC fights. She has shown a high end grappling skill set and an ability to finish fights on the floor. 

✅ Antonina Shevchenko has been beaten by better grapplers three times in the UFC, and this will be the fourth. She will have no answers once put on her back. 

✅ O'Neill is simply so heavy in top position, she will either end the fight or end the round after just a single takedown. She is absolutely the type of fighter that has given Shevchenko fits.
