UFC Picks

Menifield is 36 years old and has won four of his last five fights with one draw. Ulberg has won five of his last six fights, with each of those victories coming by way of stoppage. Menifield has a significant strike rate of 3.92 per minute with a striking accuracy of 57% but he absorbs 3.51 strikes per minute, reflecting a striking defense of 49%. On the other hand, Ulberg outshines with a higher strike rate of 7.29 per minute and a slightly better accuracy of 59%. His strike absorption is close at 3.59, but with a superior defense of 52%. Both fighters are decent in their ground game, with Menifield achieving a takedown average of 0.67 per 15 minutes and a takedown accuracy of 33% and he has a takedown defense of 75%. Ulberg has fewer takedowns (0.52 average) but he has higher accuracy of 75% and he is even in takedown defense.

Ulberg is listed as almost a 3-1 favorite in UFC betting odds to win this fight. I think Ulberg should be favored but the price is too high. I am not a value bettor when it comes to UFC betting, but if I was, there is definitely some value in taking Menifield at this price of more than 2-1.

I am a little surprised at the UFC betting rounds for this fight. I know that these two fighters have finishing power, but the rounds are listed at just 1.5. It doesn’t take much for a fight to go over the total, as it just needs to make it halfway through the second round. I think this fight is going to be closer than the odds indicate and I can see it going over the rounds total.
