At 29 years of age Martin is coming into his prime. Undefeated in Welterweight he’s showing substantial improvements in both ability and fight IQ. Martin is a BJJ Blackbelt but it is his striking that is shining recently showing good motion and a long troublesome jab. Maia is almost 42 years old but still stays dangerous. On the floor his control and submission arsenal is unmatched. He’s taken considerable harm in recent struggles in which his inability to acquire takedowns leaves him a sitting duck. Without a realistic name shot on the horizon you have to question his motivation going forward.
Stylistically this is a struggle Maia should win, but with all the athletic and remarkable benefits in Martins favour the result is a lot closer than the line indicates. Maia will need early takedowns and maybe even a finish in round one. Martin must make this hard and when he is trapped, has the BJJ to survive the entry attacks. Into around two will be at which Martin will take over as it’s no secret Maia slows considerably. This Is a Great spot to choose the starving young fighter at dogs odds.Drew Dober Breakdown
Dober comes into this matchup off a reduction, but fought well and is showing a lot of improvements fight to fight. He’s developed his capability to compliment his fairly precise striking style. Another aspect to his game is his wrestling, which he looks to mix into his offence more frequently. No world beater, but a well rounded fighter with a good chin means Dober matches up well with other reduced level fighters.
Polo Reyes is 34 decades old and his durability is presently a huge question mark. Two of the last three fights have finished in a bad TKO loss. He throws with serious power but is not well rounded, as exposed by Had??ovi?? who dominated him around the floor before pounding out him. Basically all the skill advantages are with Dober departing Reyes with few avenues to victory other than a punchers chance. The price is steep but this struggle should be a straight forward success for Dober
Bet = Dober at 1.31 (-325) chances. Risk 5 Units to win 1.55 Units.
Vinc Pichel Breakdown
This is a classic large favourite prospect carrying a step upward trap. Roberts has a great deal of hype but has failed to ignite so far against some lacklustre contest. There are some obvious holes in his game at which he’s backed up readily and retains his chin high. Pitchel is coming back after a second layoff and in 36 there is a chance he would look slower. He has big power and will want to induce a brawl where his durability and durability can shine.
This should be a competitive match where we cannot overlook the chances on Pichel. Roberts has potential but hasn’t shown anything yet to warrant such a price . Look for the veteran to induce striking exchanges and land some power shots. A KO is possible or close decision too likely.
Bet = Pichel in 3.50 (+250) odds. Risk 2 Units to win 5.0 Units.
