Betting on Jose Aldo on UFC 163

ufc-163-jose-aldo-korean-zombie-odds-betting-lineThe greatest featherweight fighter of all-time, Jose Aldo, will bring his UFC Featherweight Championship and his 15-fight winning streak into the octagon. In his last fight, Aldo defeated former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, his biggest test by far. He is a very excellent and dangerous Muay Thai striker. His hands have knockout power, his leg kicks are vicious, and his knees are devastating. He has clearly ruled over the 145-lb division in the past five years, with division records such as having the most knockout wins and knockdowns among featherweights. Not only he has excellent Muay Thai, he also owns a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.  As one of the larger featherweights, look for Aldo to utilize his strength to stay at the top.

Betting on Chan-Sung Jung on UFC 163

ufc-163-aldo-korean-zombie-chan-sung-jung-odds-betting-lineChan-Sung Jung, or most famously known as “The Korean Zombie, jumped into title contention upon his highlight-reeled three-fight winning streak: finishing Dustin Poirier with a D’Arce choke in what was the “2012 Fight of the Year”, knocking out Mark Hominick in 6.2 seconds (the second fastest KO in UFC history) and being the first and only UFC fighter to win with a twister hold. His nickname is based on his aggressive and non-stop style of fighting, which makes him one of most exciting fighters in the UFC. He is going to look for Aldo’s weaknesses; whether he will use his inside striking or his diverse ground game to find those.  One problem Aldo has is his conditioning as he tends to slow down as the fight goes on. Look for Jung to exploit that by taking his time and making the fight a long battle.  Bet on Chan-Sung Jung at Top Bet sportsbook.
