UFC 272 Preview & Betting Tips

The UFC heads to Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend for what is being described as the ultimate bad blood grudge match between Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal. Also on the UFC 272 main card are two absolute wars as Edson Barboza and Bryce Mitchell face off and the ever-exciting Kevin Holland meets Alex Oliveira. Let’s get into our preview and UFC betting tips below.

UFC 272 Preview & Betting Tips

Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal

Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal went from best buds and training partners to mortal enemies. While this storyline is so often overexaggerated, from the reports from former coaches and training partners, these two have a genuine dislike for one another.

Non-title fight pay-per-view main events are incredibly rare and usually are only seen if Conor McGregor enters the Octagon, a testament to the magnitude of fans this event is expected to reach.

Where this fight is particularly interesting is both men are strong in their opponents strongest area. Masvidal is undoubtedly the more dangerous striker but Covington’s volume and output will make it tough for Masvidal to implement his game plan. Covington has made his career off his bottomless gas tank and generally smothering opponents and while Masvidal won’t give up on himself, I find it hard to make a case for him. Ultimately Covington’s much higher output carries him to an entertaining decision win. While

Kevin Holland vs. Alex Oliveira

Kevin Holland drops down to Welterweight for this clash and gets a favourable matchup. Holland would have gone away and worked on his wrestling deficiencies but I doubt that will matter here.

Oliveira will likely trade with Holland and it will be a matter of time until Holland puts him away on the feet.

Dustin Jacoby vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk

Many people forget that Jacoby spent eight years out of the UFC Octagon before he returned pummelling Justin Ledet in Round 1. Since that win, he is unbeaten in four fights, with the only mark on his record a draw to Ion Cutelaba.

Michal Oleksiejczuk is generally the perfect fighter to back as an underdog against a fighter who has cardio issues. Unfortunately for the Polishman, Jacoby doesn’t fit the bill. In his last fight Jacoby landed north of 300 strikes and he should just pick apart Oleksiejcuk every time he tries to close the distance. Expect a one-sided battering in this one.
