Ultimate Fighter Finale Picks
LAS VEGAS, NV (TheSpread) –The Ultimate Fighter Season 13 Finale takes place on Saturday night and we have a few picks to consider for this live MMA event.
The Ultimate Fighter Finale takes places from the Pearl at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. The main card airs live on SpikeTV at 9PM ET. Odds for each contest are according to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Bodog. Here are three picks to consider for tonight’s action.
This main event should be an exciting contest as both fighters like to push the pace and leave everything in the cage. Pettis has highlight-reel kicks and solid ground defense while Guida is a tremendous wrestler and can really take a great deal of punishment. In this fight I see Pettis’ ground defense and striking as the difference. I look for him to land a few big kicks before finishing off a dazed Guida in the third round with a choke. FREE PICK – Anthony Pettis -175
This fight should be very competitive as both guys like to let the fight go anywhere. Herman should have the edge in striking while Credeur will have the nod in the grappling. In terms of a winner, I like Credeur to use his submission skills to secure a choke on a tired Herman in the third round to pick up a big victory in the octagon. FREE PICK – Tim Credeur -125
Maldonado is a big striker while Kingsbury is a good grappler. For this contest, I like Maldonado to come out and land some big strikes in the opening round to allow him to get a first round TKO and earn his second win in the octagon. FREE PICK – Fabio Maldonado +150
