LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – Which lightweight contender will best the other at UFC 182 tonight when Myles Jury faces Donald Cerrone?

View Real-Time Sports Betting Odds

Cerrone (25-6) is the seasoned veteran that has been in this position before and he is meeting Fury (15-0) who is in the biggest fight of his career to this point. Cerrone has an aggressive muay thai striking style that has been tough for opponents to deal with and he can also submit his opponents on the ground. Jury is more of a traditional striker, using boxing with some kicks mixed in.

The latest odds according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv have Cerrone as the favorite to win, as he is getting odds of -160 to win, while Jury has been given a money line of +130 to prevail. This fight will air on PPV with the main card starting at 10PM ET.

This fight should be quite entertaining. Both men will throw plenty of bombs at the other, but I think this experience may be too much for Jury. Cerrone has fought on the big stage many times and won and lost. Jury is in his first co-main event and that can often take a mental toll on a fighter. Cerrone has done well against other strikers when they aren’t quite aggressive enough and Jury fits that mold. Jury is more of a composed striker and that will allow Cerrone to dictate the pacing of the fight. Look for the Cowboy to pick up a hard-fought decision win.
