Bet on UFC 198 Odds

Werdum (20-5-1) is the current heavyweight champion and riding a six-fight win streak in the UFC. He is making his first title defense since submitting the former champion, Cain Velasquez, last June. Miocic (14-2) has won his last two fives and five of his last six to earn the title fight. His last fight was a first-round TKO of Andrei Arlovski in January.

Miocic has a lot of power in his hands and he’s a little bit leaner than Werdum, so he has the athleticism to win this fight. However, Werdum has very underrated striking skills that he has worked hard on over the years. Also, he is arguably the top submission fighter in the heavyweight division, which is saying something. If Miocic is going to win, it will probably have to happen quickly. His biggest wins came with early knockouts. If the fight drags on, Werdum should be able to use his leg kicks to slow down Miocic and eventually take the fight to the mat, where he will be able to submit the challenger with ease. Look for a successful title defense tonight for Werdum in his home country.
