At 29 decades old Martin is coming into his prime. Undefeated in Welterweight he’s showing huge improvements in both skill and fight IQ. Martin is a BJJ Blackbelt but it is his striking that’s shining lately showing good motion and a very long troublesome jab. Maia is almost 42 years old but still stays dangerous. On the ground his hands and submission arsenal is unmatched. He’s taken substantial damage in late fights where his inability to acquire takedowns leaves him a sitting duck. With no realistic title shot on the horizon you have to question his motivation moving forward.
Stylistically this is a struggle Maia should triumph, but with all the athletic and remarkable benefits in Martins favour the result is much closer than the line suggests. Maia will require early takedowns and maybe a finish in around one. Martin should make this difficult and when he’s trapped, has got the BJJ to at least survive the submission attacks. Into around two will be at which Martin will take over as it is no secret Maia slows considerably. This Is a Great spot to take the hungry young fighter in puppies odds.Drew Dober Breakdown
Dober comes into this matchup off a loss, but fought well and is showing a great deal of improvements fight to fight. He’s developed his power to compliment his quite accurate striking style. Another facet to his game is his wrestling, which he seems to blend into his offence more often. No world beater, but a well rounded fighter with a solid chin means Dober matches up well with other reduced level fighters.
Polo Reyes is 34 decades old and his durability is presently a massive question mark. Two of his last 3 fights have ended in a bad TKO loss. He throws with serious power but isn’t well rounded, as exposed by Had??ovi?? who dominated him around the floor before pounding him out. Basically all of the skill advantages are with Dober leaving Reyes with few paths to success aside from a punchers chance. The Cost is steep but that this fight should be a straight forward success for Dober
Bet = Dober at 1.31 (-325) odds. Risk 5 Components to acquire 1.55 Units.
Vinc Pichel Breakdown
This is a classic large favourite prospect taking a step up trap. Roberts has a great deal of hype but has failed to spark so far against some lacklustre contest. There are a number of obvious holes in his game where he’s backed up easily and retains his chin high. Pitchel is coming back after a second layoff and at 36 there’s a possibility he would look slower. He’s got big power and are going to want to induce a brawl where his durability and durability can glow.
This ought to be a competitive game where we cannot overlook the chances on Pichel. Roberts has potential but has not revealed anything yet to warrant such a price . Look for the veteran to force striking exchanges and property some power shots. A KO is possible or close decision also likely.
Bet = Pichel at 3.50 (+250) odds. Risk 2 Units to acquire 5.0 Units.
