UFC Fight Night : Derek Brunson vs . Edmen Shahbazyan Prediction - Продолжительность: 12:24 Fight Night Picks 7 087 просмотров.

On Saturday, Aug. 1, the UFC returns to the Apex in Las Vegas for its 31st event on ESPN+. In the night ’s main event, veteran middleweight Derek Brunson collides with undefeated Edmen Shahbazyan .

The Brazilian bruiser is more technical than Brown in the striking department and hits significantly harder. Brown is big by division standards, standing 6-foot-3 with a 78-inch reach, but Luque should be able to get inside his range and bust him up with punches. The 28-year-old also has an incredibly strong chin, so Brown won't be able to knock him out.

Luque is 7-1 in his last eight contests. Over the past five years, "The Silent Assassin" has only lost to top contenders Stephen Thompson and Leon Edwards. Brown went undefeated in 2019 and appears to be turning things around after a rocky start to his Octagon career, but he's still the level of fighter that Luque has handled in the past.

Luque is the slicker grappler of the two and could potentially find a submission if this fight goes to the ground. But it's likely to remain a stand-up battle, and Luque's sharpness and power will take him to victory over "Rude Boy."

The other half of the parlay sees Meerschaert make his light heavyweight debut against veteran Ed Herman.

This is more of a fade on Herman than anything. He's 39 years old and well past his prime. He's riding a two-fight winning streak, but the competition - Patrick Cummins and Khadis Ibragimov - doesn't quite compare to Meerschaert, a crafty grappler who can hold his own on the feet.

Meerschaert should be able to stay more active than Herman in their striking exchanges, and if this fight goes to the mat, "GM3" will be able to dictate the pace and register more offense.

Meerschaert, a 44-fight veteran who's been in the UFC since 2016, is coming off a quick TKO loss to Ian Heinisch in June. It's fair to wonder if he's returning a bit too soon, but the 32-year-old has bounced back from stoppage losses in the past, so it's unlikely to be much of an issue.

UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Oleinik odds, best bet

  UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Oleinik odds, best bet UFC Fight Night takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and will feature a heavyweight bout between Derrick Lewis and Aleksei Oleinik. Here's a top play for the event. Aleksei Oleinik (+165) vs. Derrick Lewis The main event truly can go either way, so it should essentially be a pick 'em. While the oddsmakers favor Lewis at a 2-1 margin, I'm actually leaning the other way. And ultimately, there's too much value on Oleinik to pass up. Oleinik is one of the best grappling specialists in heavyweight history. Of his 59 professional wins, 46 have been submissions.
