UFC Predictions

Haqparast has only fought in the UFC twice and yet he is getting a lot of press. He has improved and he looked really good in the win over Marc Diakiese in July. Gouti is a decent striker but he doesn’t do much else and he has done next to nothing in the UFC. If Gouti doesn’t turn the corner soon he will probably be out of the UFC. The price on Haqparast is very high, but it is hard to make any case for Gouti in this fight. I think the best option is to look at some of the props and the total. I will look for a first round win for Haqparast and also go under the rounds total.
