Bet on UFC Fight Night Odds

Mendes has a strong wrestling background that he has since turned into a strong striking game. He could wrestle his opponents and likely win, but he has been beating people on his feet in recent years. Four of his last five wins have been by KO with his hands. Lamas also has some good striking, but he likes to fight out of the clinch and use his submission skills when on the ground. He is a diverse fighter that will likely not be as strong as Mendes, so he will have to use movement to win.
